Could Joe Corona be heading across the border to join forces with a new look Galaxy?

Possibly. A Sinaloa-based journalist for TV Azteca is claiming Club Tijuana midfielder Joe Corona, who just completed a successful loan spell at second-division club Dorados, has a serious offer on the table to move to LA.

Perhaps best known for helping the USA capture the 2013 Gold Cup alongside Landon Donovan, the 26-year-old American with Mexican and El Salvadorian roots is a versatile midfielder who excels in several positions and contributes on both sides of the pitch.

Corona had expressed interest in coming to MLS in May, so the desire to move is there. And the Galaxy need quality midfielders who won’t blow up the budget.

The only issue? Similar to when the Galaxy acquired Jermaine Jones yesterday, his rights belong to D.C. United, so LA would need to part with an asset or two to make the deal happen.

What do you think?
