- Landon Donovan
There is something to be said about keeping your best player and marking up the value on him when you can. The LA Galaxy appear to be doing just that and honestly it shouldn’t come to a shock that the price that they want for their MVP Landon Donovan is high. Try $16 million high according to Martin Rogers over at Yahoo!.
Yes that price tag is a tad bit on the ridiculous side but to me it isn’t a shock considering the value that Donovan adds to his club and to the league as a whole. I don’t even see this as an issue either.
Now pricing him this high obviously will distract some possible suitors from bidding on him. That’s the league’s intention and you can’t blame them much for that. Now the question comes does holding him back do any good? Well it depends on how badly Donovan wants to actually go back to Europe at this point. If he wants to stay here in America then it doesn’t really matter now does it?
Blaming the league for pricing him this high isn’t worth doing and quite honestly most people would do just that when it comes to Donovan anyways right now. I know I would. For the league to lose a guy like Donovan right now would take a lot of work to get over. But you know that may be a story for another day.
