Transfer Buzz: Gallas and Keane to MLS?

With MLS clubs signing up more designated players than ever before, fans should start getting used to European players being linked with moves to America.

A pair of Tottenham players, William Gallas and Robbie Keane, have been linked recently with potential moves to the U.S.

Gallas, who moved to White Hart Lane on a free transfer, has been awarded the captain’s armband in recent matches and has drawn praise from his manager, Harry Redknapp, for his solid play.

He’s making £55,000 a week, and reports suggest that he could do better in MLS.

While I think that this would be a good idea for, say, New York, I find it hard to believe that Redknapp would allow Gallas to leave – considering Spurs’ injury issues at the position.

Robbie Keane to, say, Vancouver is also a good idea and, to me, far more likely.

With a glut of strikers, Spurs will probably let him go in the January window. And while he’s had more clubs than Tiger Woods, he’s a passionate player that might just thrive with the challenge of leading the line for an expansion team in MLS.

It makes sense to me, assuming you don’t have to break the bank to sign him.

What do you think? Excited about the possibility of more European imports as DPs in MLS? Or do you think the league should be investing more in young, home-grown players?
