CONFIRMED: LA Galaxy midfielder Joao Pedro has been loaned to Portuguese club CD Tondela for the 2019 season. Joao spent most of the 2018 season on loan with Greek side Apollon Smyrnis and hasn’t played for the Galaxy since mid-2018. In total Joao has made 31 appearances for the Galaxy and only scored a single goal. Was this a good move for the Galaxy?
With Ashley Cole leaving for England there is a vacancy in the captain position. New manager Guillermo Barros Schelotto will have to decide which of the current players will make the best captain. Here are my top three picks:
CONFIRMED: 21 year old Mexican winger Uriel Antuna has joined the LA Galaxy on loan from Manchester City. Uriel has made 15 appearances for Mexico’s U20 and U21 National teams and can play at left or right wing. Antuna has been on loan at FC Groningen since 2017 and has scored 5 goals for the Dutch club. The Galaxy will announce this move in the next few days. Welcome to LA Uriel!!!
CONFIRMED: LA Galaxy captain Ashley Cole has joined Championship club Derby County on a 6 month contract. The 38 year old left back made over 80 appearances for the Galaxy totaling 3 goals and 11 assists for the club. The Galaxy will now have to select the next club captain. Thank you for everything Ashley!!! Good luck back in England!!!
CONFIRMED: The LA Galaxy have signed former Academy goalkeeper Abraham Romero from Pachuca. The 20 year old has made 12 appearances for Mexico’s U17 and U20 teams and has played for Pachuca since 2016. Romero will most likely play more for LA Galaxy 2 but he might make a few appearances for the senior team. Welcome back to LA!!!
RUMOR: LA Galaxy captain Ashley Cole is set to join Championship side Derby County on a 6 month contract. The Englishman reportedly wants to reunite with former teammate Frank Lampard who is currently the Manager of Derby. The 38 year old is set to join the team in the next few days. Should the Galaxy let Cole leave or try to re-sign him?
The LA Galaxy's 2019 jerseys will have 5 stars instead of 1 gold star. Each star represents 1 of the Galaxy's 5 MLS Cups.
RUMOR: The LA Galaxy are interested in Mexican winger Uriel Antuna. The 21 year old is currently on loan from Manchester City at FC Groningen and has scored 5 goals in 15 appearances. Uriel formerly played for Santos Laguna and has made 15 appearances for Mexico’s U20 and U21 teams. He can play left or right wing. Should the Galaxy sign Uriel Antuna?
CONFIRMED: The LA Galaxy have re-signed American midfielder Servando Carrasco and he will return for 2019. The 30 year old has made 19 appearances for the Galaxy and totaled 2 assists in 2018. Welcome back Servando!!!
Rumor: According to multiple reports coming out of Argentina, new LA Galaxy coach Guillermo Barros Schelotto is interested in River Plate midfielder, Ignacio Fernandez. Barros Schelotto last coached Boca Juniors last year and faced against Ignacio Fernandez a couple times in the famous Boca Juniors and River Plate rivalry. LA Galaxy has also been rumored to be getting rid of Giovani Dos Santos who has been lacking playing time lately due to injuries and poor performance in games.
