LA Galaxy passes on Cubo Torres

Sounders also pass, now rumored to sign with Dynamo

According to Ives Galarcep at, sources have confirmed the LA Galaxy and Seattle Sounders have passed on Erick "Cubo" Torres, with the 20 year-old MLS All-Star and El Tri up and comer now negotiating with the Houston Dynamo, who have agreed to pay the $7.5 million transfer fee.

As fun as it would have been to watch Cubo scoring goals in a Galaxy uniform, Torres was always more of a want than a need. LA needs midfielders, not forwards. 

And as Adam Serrano points out, LA didn't develop Gyasi Zardes for nothing.

Do you think the Galaxy could have used Cubo?
