According to Sports Illustrated, LA Galaxy expected to make Omar Gonzalez their third Designated Player

According to Sports Illustrated's Grant Wahl, the LA Galaxy's may be ready to lock down Omar Gonzalez to a contract extension by using their vacant third Designated Player spot.

In his story about new Seattle Sounders FC signing Clint Dempsey, Wahl writes that the Galaxy, Seattle and Toronto FC were on the U.S. National Team captain's shortlist, but LA ceased to be a contender as "Los Angeles is expected to announce soon that it has filled its maximum three DP slots with the extension of Omar González's contract."

When reached for comment by LA Galaxy Insider, a club spokesperson stated that “Omar is a very talented player and keeping him in a Galaxy uniform is a priority for us. We will continue to have conversations with him as the season progresses.”


Expect Gonzalez to become a third Designated Player? Would you want him to stay if it meant that he was the Galaxy's third DP?
