  1. I can’t understand this. Why would Puig do this? I’m honestly curious to know what I’m not understanding. Has he fallen out of favor? For Barca, his sell-on clause has got to be worth more if he’s in a mid-table La Liga team. Or maybe he’s a loaner for another year or two. For Puig, his national team chances have got to be better if he stays in Spain. How is this good for anyone but LA? I guess we don’t know what they paid for him.

    • Because MLS is becoming a very good destination that’s why. And it’s LA. I am sure he sees this as a very good opportunity.

    • Before the Galaxy–Chivas game last night, one of the pundits before the game said there are questions about his attitude. Specifically, word is that he is not a team first guy. It’s possible that this reputation is such that other La Liga teams aren’t interested, but that is just speculation on my part.
