Yeah, its pretty random and almost rare to get actual rumor news out of Major League Soccer’s website, but today they posted a story on Dutch star Edgar Davids training at the Home Depot Center with the LA Galaxy.

Yeah, while I wonder about the possibility of an actual move to MLS by Davids, I won’t read into any speculation that he will end up with the Galaxy.

The Dutchman is currently on vacation in California and called up Galaxy head coach and fellow countryman, Ruud Gullit, to see if he could join the team in training this week. Gullit didn’t hesitate to extend an invitation to Davids, who is looking to stay in shape this offseason.

Sure the obvious connect could be there for him to join but there would be the Galaxy because of a fellow Dutchman coaching the club. I just don’t see it yet.

He came close to signing with FC Dallas last year and is currrently out of contract. Several MLS clubs would love to have a player like Davids. Would he be worth a Designated Player price? I honestly say no. He would be a good value for a club though going into the home stretch of the season though. P

ossibly a club with roster spots like Dallas could use him so time will tell if this little trip to the States pays off for a MLS club.

    he is worth the designated player role. The MLS is full of fance skillfull players, but when a player like davids closes down the players and tackles like a mad man. Defense wins championships.
