The USMNT forward put rumours of a European move to bed in an interview on Wednesday.
Landon Donovan has put rumours of a move abroad to bed, stating in a recent interview that he wants to finish his career with LA Galaxy.
News broke earlier this week that Donovan’s fine form had attracted the attention of several Italian clubs – including the second most successful club in European history, AC Milan.
Donovan has eased the concerns of Galaxy fans in an interview on Wednesday with TWC SportsNet:
“I would like that,” Donovan said, in response to being asked if he’d like to finish his career with the Galaxy, “Obviously as you get older, you only have so many more opportunities to do things you want to do. Financially, things come into play. All things being equal, I would love to be here and we’re working towards that, and I’m hopeful that will happen.”
Donovan even gave an incredibly straight answer when asked if anything could prevent him from staying with the Galaxy. He simply stated: “[The Galaxy] telling me they don’t want me.”
Donovan’s break from professional football last winter obviously worked, as the striker has been in some of the best form of his career this season for both club and country, winning the Golden Ball during the 2013 Gold Cup and notching six goals and and seven assists for the Galaxy so far this season.
