Gazzetta dello Sport based journalist Nicolo Schira is reporting the Galaxy are closing in on a deal to bring the 32-year old striker to Los Angeles. Furthermore if the word of an Italian outlet wasn’t convincing enough, Rossi hopped on Instagram to post a cryptic snap on a plane himself with the caption “Destination” and an arrow pointing towards a bright sun. Think he might be referring to LA?
The New Jersey born forward has enjoyed a relatively successful career despite a history of injury troubles, scoring 54 times for Villarreal in a three-year spell and 16 times for Fiorentina in 33 appearances. Rossi recently suited up for Genoa, leaving the club in July 2018.
A quick striker, the 5’8” Rossi has the potential to form a formidable partnership with Zlatan should he manage to stay healthy.
What do you think of the rumor?
Update: Reports are now claiming Rossi is set to land in Los Angeles for a trial with LAFC. Interesting if true.
Per sources , Giuseppe Rossi is indeed headed to Los Angeles.— Kristian Dyer (@KristianRDyer) February 27, 2019
But contrary to reports I'm hearing Rossi is set to trial with #LAFC.
Former Italian international has trained recently with #ManUtd and last summer with #RBNY. Looked sharp with the MLS club.
