- Bayern Munich, Landon Donovan, Player Loans
Landon Donovan is likely to return to Major League Soccer after his loan with German club Bayern Munich expires in a couple weeks.
The AP posted this report on the matter a little bit ago that National team star would return to the Galaxy and now see a deal for him to be sold to Munich.
“Donovan is an interesting player,” Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told the Munich newspaper TZ in an interview published Tuesday. “But when you have Klose, Toni and Olic already under contract, we think the fourth player (striker) should really be a young player with perspective.”
Its a bit of a disappointment for Donovan. Between Beckham and Donovan I must say I was really pulling for Donovan to do well enough to get sold to Munich this winter. But his stay has been good there and I can see him turning it on again in MLS this season with the Galaxy.
Maybe this summer he will be able to make the jump. Unlike the Beckham saga I just don’t see this dragging out in the same manner for Donovan.
