Donovan ready to return to Europe

With the 2008 MLS season over, and the Golden Boot Award in his grasp after a 20-goal tally, Landon Donovan is ready to head back to Europe.

This isn’t exactly news since reports have permeated all year linking Donovan to a likely winter departure overseas. Well, Donovan re-stated his desire to go abroad and it is sounding more and more like Donovan is ready to do what it takes to have his wish granted.

Should the 26-year-old striker/midfielder leave? Absolutely. He has already shown over and over that he can dominate in MLS, and the challenge of playing and succeeding in Europe has to be motivating him now, especially given the number of Americans who have moved overseas in recent years. Donovan doesn’t really have anything left to prove in MLS, but has everything to prove playing in a top European league.

What do you think of Donovan’s desire to go abroad now? Glad to see him talking about a new challenge? Worried about the state of the Los Angeles Galaxy without him? Excited about what such a move could mean to his national team success?
