Fresh off a hat trick on the weekend, Los Angeles ace Landon Donovan has reacted favorably to a persistent transfer link with Bundesliga kings Bayern Munich.
FC Hollywood appears prepared to wave goodbye to Lukas Podolski in January, and could return with a new enquiry for the Galaxy man should that attacker slot become vacated.
Donovan, who had two unhappy stints with Bayer Leverkusen, had often spoken of playing in England or Spain – but it appears the thought Bayern have reopened the doors to Germany.
“That’s one of the best teams in the world,” he told Soccernet “As of now, I’ve got to worry about what’s going on here, but if January rolls around and there’s interest, and the league is willing to discuss it, I would be excited to talk about it.”
“There have to be teams interested, so there’s a lot of ifs – but if a team like Bayern Munich came calling, you don’t really turn them away without thinking about it.”
“I would love for it to happen,” he declared. “It’s up to the league, it’s up to the Galaxy and it’s up to me.”
