With a mini war chest now at the disposal of Guillermo Barros Schelotto and Dennis te Kloese, could we see reinforcements arriving sooner than later?

Reports out of France claim Olympique Marseille center back Adil Rami is considering a move to MLS and the LA Galaxy in particular. An increasingly peripheral figure in Ligue 1 matches these days, the 33-year old wants more playing time and is believed to be fond of LA having dating Hollywood movie star Pamela Anderson last year.

A 2018 FIFA World Cup winner with France, Rami plays for Designated Player Romain Alessandrini’s former club. Similar to the alleged pursuit of Giancarlo Gonzalez, the technical staff appear to be looking for an older experienced center back who can confidently lead a back line. A former player for Lille, Valencia, Sevilla and Milan among other clubs, the well-traveled Rami could fit the bill should Marseille allow the defender to leave.

We’ll let you know if this rumor goes anywhere.
