Former England international Ashley Cole has suggested that he may have to reconsider his intention of extending his contract with LA Galaxy. The 36-year-old endured the worst campaign of his professional career after Galaxy finished rock bottom of the Western Conference.
Cole had earlier suggested that he hopes to remain in Los Angeles for at least one more season, but he has now insisted that things must change at StubHub Center before he signs on for a third year with the California-based club.
Brian Schmetzer has revealed that the Seattle Sounders team are looking to secure a place in the play-offs by getting a victory against Philadelphia Union.
Seattle Sounders will be able to do so by getting a victory against strugglers Philadelphia Union. After having been out of the play-off picture in the first few months of the season, Seattle Sounders have been quite impressive in recent months. Even though the club has only picked up just one win in the last five matches, the Western Conference has been a tough table this time around with none of the teams showing a lot of dominance.
With recent defeats to Girona and Tottenham Hotspur, it’s rumored that Zinedine Zidane is thinking about offloading a few of his players, with one of those expected to be on his way out being Toni Kroos. For fans who have seen the German in action on voetballivestream.tv, this is very difficult to believe - the impact that the German midfielder has made since arriving back on 2014 has been great, and he was one of the key players in Real Madrid's most recent double in La Liga and the Champions League in 2016/17.
Marcelo, Casemiro and Luka Modric are the other players who are reportedly to be on the sell-out list of Zinedine Zidane, whether or not it’s true is something that remains to be seen. With Real Madrid one of the most watched teams on websites such as livestream.services, any changes will be watched with interest by millions of fans across the globe.
Are these going to be the big transfers in the January transfer window?
Philippe Coutinho (Liverpool to Barcelona)
It was purported to be one of the biggest deals of the summer, but Coutinho’s move to Barcelona never materialised before the window shut. The Brazilian tried his best to force through a move to the Catalans, as he was all set to be one of the replacements for Neymar along with Ousmane Dembele.
Coutinho remained at Liverpool, but his future still remains as unclear as ever. Jurgen Klopp protected the player soon after the window shut, with Coutinho reportedly out with an injury but it was evident the player did not have his head at the club. Time has gone on and the attacking midfielder has knuckled down, but Barca remain extremely keen on the player who is a long-term target.
Former United States star Landon Donovan believes his former club La Galaxy do not have a 'real plan' to rebuild the squad as they near what has been an awful season in Major League Soccer.
