Figo Still an MLS Target?
Alexi Lalas told Marca Sports Daily on Friday that Luis Figo was still likely to come to MLS, although he will not be playing for the Galaxy. I’m not sure if this is just bluster by Lalas to get in the European press at a time when David Beckham’s injury woes worsen and after the Galaxy embarrassed themselves in two friendlies where the European press assembled (it should be pointed out that the Galaxy have played very well since those two friendlies), or if this is something real. Figo’s contract with Inter runs out next June.
