Sacha Kljestan denies report of LA Galaxy transfer

In terms of confirming or denying a report, that tweet by Sacha Kljestan is about as cut and dry as they come. However, the LA Galaxy are still holding a press conference the day after MLS' transfer deadline, so there's a guarantee that a new player signing is being announced today.

In terms of confirming or denying a report, that tweet by Sacha Kljestan is about as cut and dry as they come. However, the LA Galaxy are still holding a press conference the day after MLS' transfer deadline, so there's a guarantee that a new player signing is being announced today.

That certainly ramps up things a bit. A bigger name that would require going through the allocation order is almost certainly someone involved in the 2014 World Cup, which Sacha Kljestan did not.

For a league that loves secrets, MLS is typically terrible at surprises. That it's the morning of the press conference and no national reporter has scooped the story yet is quite impressive on the part of the Galaxy.

I vote we dub this signing Mystery Bigger Name, or MBN for short.

Update: I'm starting to think Doug McIntyre is just making things up for fun.
