Monday Kickoff: Galaxy stars in Euro demand, Ferdinand sent death threat and more



Despite ousting Real Salt Lake at the Home Depot Center on Sunday night, setting up a clash with Houston in the final, the Galaxy stars are already being eyed up abroad. 

Ligue 1 big-spender Paris Saint-Germain has confirmed the idea that it will indeed attempt to bring David Beckham back to Europe as the former International looks to reclaim his place for the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

Since its takeover in the summer by Qatari Sports Investment, PSG has signed on the likes of Javier Pastore and Kevin Gameiro, and Beckham is being lined up to be its next prize.  PSG president has labeled Beckham "extraordinary" and is "attracted" to the idea of bringing the Englishman to France.

But Beckham isn't the only one with a European suitor.

Everton boss David Moyes revealed that he is, once again, interested in bringing Landon Donovan back to Goodison Park in January β€” though admittedly only on a loan move.

Donovan enjoyed a successful stint at Everton in January 2010, even landing a "Player of the Month" accolade from the club's fans.  Despite the club hoping to sign Donovan on a permanent basis, the deal was refused and the USMNT star returned in time for the start of the MLS season.

Still, Moyes says he is keen to bring Donovan back. "We could do with some speed and width on the right.

"We will look to see if there is any interest."

Here are some other stories to kick your Monday off:


What started out as an altercation on the field between two players has escalated quickly into something much more serious.

Two weeks after claiming to have been racially abused by John Terry, Queens Park Rangers' Anton Ferdinand has now received a life-threatening letter in the mail following all the controversy.

Ferdinand was the subject of racial abuse via Twitter last week β€” which he re-tweeted to the public β€” but now the matter has landed in the Metropolitan Police's lap after the letter arrived by hand at the Sunderland grounds before the weekend.

The defender's family members are believed to have installed security systems at their homes, while Ferdinand has been told to put one in place at his own.  


It's not all doom and gloom for Arsenal these days as teen midfield prodigy Jack Wilshere has asserted his love for the club to a maximum extent.

Wilshere has never made his love for Arsenal a secret, but when asked if he would stay at the club "forever," he responded with, "I promise that, yeah."

Sidelined with an ankle injury since late September, Wilshere is slated to return in December and a partnership in the center of midfield with Mikel Arteta beckons.

Arsenal currently sits in seventh place in the Premier League with a clash at Carrow Road with Norwich next on its plate.


PSV Eindhoven's Andres Pereira has revealed that he will complete a move to Manchester United as soon as the January transfer window opens on the 1st of the New Year.

Only 15, Pereira is tipped as one of the brightest young talents coming up in the sport today, and Sir Alex Ferguson will be eager to mature the attacking midfielder.

A Brazilian-born Belgian, Pereira has been quoted one of the best players in the world for his age.


Think Beckham and Donovan should and would go?  Should Ferdinand take any further action at this point?  How big of a difference will Wilshere be to have back at Arsenal?
