As rumors continue to abound, Landon Donovan places his LA crib up for sale. With two successful loan spells to Everton in the Premier League, it may be a foregone conclusion where he will go if he chooses to play in England.
But could the 30 yr old consider playing any place else?
The experiment with Bayern Munich did not last, and we all know about his time in Germany before that.
Perhaps Spain’s La Liga might be a destination, but there has hardly ever been interest from there.
There is one league that understands the quality of an aging star, however, and that’s the Italian Serie A. Should any offers be considered, Italy could provide the perfect home for one of America’s most important players.
Just look at Andrea Pirlo, the 33 yr old Italian playmaker was offloaded by AC Milan, unceremoniously, only to be picked up by Juventus who went on to win the Scudetto. Just how long did Paolo Maldini play anyway?
No disrespect to Everton, but in moving to England at 30, Donovan risks being injured more than actually playing.
