Rumor: Sacha Kljestan to join LA Galaxy in summer transfer?

A fresh new rumor this morning involving the LA Galaxy has former Chivas USA player and current United States regular Sacha Kljestan return to MLS with a summer transfer move to LA.

A fresh new rumor this morning involving the LA Galaxy has former Chivas USA player and current United States regular Sacha Kljestan return to MLS with a summer transfer move to LA. Kljestan signed a three year contract with Belgian side Anderlecht in March of 2013, but only playing in six matches during the first year of his contract seems to have the midfielder feeling unhappy.

Kljestan, who was born in Huntington Beach, is currently given a market value of three million Euros by transfermarkt.com. As Chivas USA sold Kljestan for an undisclosed transfer fee, they no longer hold his rights in MLS. As he is a national team player, he'd be subject to the current allocation order of which Toronto are currently tops. However, we have seen in the case of Clint Dempsey and Michael Bradley that the rules can be bent if the contract is of DP status.

Which would mean LA executing the often rumored transfer of Gonzalez after the World Cup to bring in Kljestan. Or, perhaps, this is just one of the many stories printed about this time of year about unhappy players in Europe who might want to move to Los Angeles. I mean we do have movie stars and palm trees, can you blame those unhappy players?

Update: We have a quote from Kljestan now. Phrasing!
