It is understood that LA are now very close to agreeing a deal for the former Barcelona and Spurs midfielder.
Unlike USA boss Klinsmann, who was very critical of Michael Bradley’s and Jozy Altidore’s decision to leave Europe and return to the MLS, it appears Miguel ‘Piojo’ Herrera is more relaxed about the situation.
“There’s no reason it would affect anything,” Herrera said. “Teams try to sign important players as leading figures and if Galaxy has considered Gio it is because they think, and I think too, that they would be getting an important player.”
Mexico drew 0-0 with Honduras last night in their final Gold Cup warm up game. It means they go into the CONCACAF event without a win in their last seven matches. Dos Santos came on as a second half sub.
It is thought he would cost LA Galaxy around $7 milllion – though the fact LA already have three designated players (Steven Gerard, Omar Gonzalez and Robbie Keane) could prove a stumbling block.
