The Major League Soccer has had an ongoing tendency of attracting veteran high profile players to the American League and LA Galaxy is on the verge of signing a few well known performers during this winter transfer window.
Ashley Cole recently terminated his contract with As.Roma and the experienced defender is rumored to be in the wish-list of LA Galaxy and a deal is believed to be in the works. If reports are indeed true then Ashley Cole should be able to wear the jersey of LA Galaxy and represent the American club within the next few days.
The 35 year old defender was not able to snatch consistent playing time with As.Roma and he decided to part ways with the Italian club. At such an elevated age, Ashle Cole wants to spend his time with a club that he can play an important role and be a regular starter, this wasn’t happening for him with As.Roma as he was a substitute player.
Ac.Milan’s Nigel de Jong is another one of the players who isnt getting much time in the pitch with his club and LA Galaxy are setting their sights in the Dutch midfielder.
Nigel de Jong has a contract with Ac.Milan which runs until 2018 but considering how much he has fallen down in the pecking order of the Italian club, a move away from San Siro could indeed occur.
The Major League Soccer club LA Galaxy is getting ready for the arrival of the Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard who is expected to make his debut in the American team on July 11.
Steven Gerrard reached the end of his 28 year long relationship with Liverpool on the last day of previous Premier League season which saw the team of Brendan Rodgers losing 6-1 against Stoke City.
It certainly wasn’t the best way that Gerrard wanted to end his Liverpool career but nonetheless, the experienced midfielder is optimistic about the new challenge that is lying ahead of him.
This new challenge is the MLS. Gerrard penned an 18 month long contract with LA Galaxy as he is starting a new chapter in his playing career.
The head coach of LA Galaxy, Bruce Arena has already revealed to the media and to the public that he has been establishing talks with Gerrard in relation to his arrival to California which will be done in a few weeks during the summer.
Bruce Arena said: “We expect him here before July 11. We haven’t finalized a date yet. He will be here, he’ll get some training in and by the time that he’s eligible to play; he’ll be ready to go.”

Bruce Arena has made it clear that even after the arrival of Steven Gerrard in the middle of this year; there would be no change in captaincy at Los Angeles Galaxy.
It had been thought that Gerrard’s arrival might mean him replacing Robbie Keane as skipper of the team.
Gerrard was also supposed to take over the job of taking the penalty shots for Galaxy once he makes his way in.
But, according to Arena, both the captaincy as well as the penalty taking job is assigned to Keane at this point in time and until, he shows patchiness in doing that or expresses his desire to quit, he would continue.
Gerrard is obviously a big name and with him coming to the Major League soccer, the American Football is only going to get better.
Steven Gerrard recently completed a move to LA Galaxy on a free transfer. He will become one of the highest earners in the MLS, as the LA Galaxy have not thought twice about paying the extravagant sums to the midfielder.
The Liverpool captain has been one of the iconic attacking midfielders in the last decade. He has scored goals from every possible situation in the last 15 years, but in recent times, he has been shifted to a deeper role in a bid to extend his career. LA Galaxy coach Bruce Arena, though, says that he wants Gerrard back in an attacking role when he starts playing for the MLS club.
