In an interview with Time Warner Cable SportsNet’s Chris Mcgee, Landon Donovan stated that he'd like to remain with LA despite his contract being up at the end of the season.
The Galaxy forward has impressed since returning from an impressive performance with the U.S. National Team at the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup. In his two matches since returning, Donovan has tallied three goals an assist to help LA to a 1-0-1 record. When Mcgee pressed him on his contract expiring, Donovan mentioned that his choice would be to remain with the Galaxy.
“I would like that,” Donovan said. ” Obviously as you get older, you only have so many more opportunities to do things you want to do. Financially, things come into play. All things being equal, I would love to be here and we’re working towards that, and I’m hopeful that will happen.”
At a press conference last week for the unveiling of Omar Gonzalez as the club's new third Designated Player, Galaxy President Chris Klein told reporters that the club is currently working to keep Donovan with LA.
As for what could prevent him from remaining with the Galaxy, Donovan answered bluntly.
“Them telling me they don’t want me,” said Donovan.
