The LA Times, the Left Coast's "newspaper of record" reports Giovani dos Santos has signed with the LA Galaxy. His salary "isn't higher than the $6m/year Steven Gerrard is receiving" but could well be close to that. Transfer fee isn't known, but "Villarreal asked for a fee of at least $7m" according to this.
Gio had a great 2013-14 in yellow, a poor 2014-15, and while I'd prefer to have seen us get something more like €10m for him, most pundits and fans thought his brother had a better season, by far. Maybe part of it was injury, and with Vietto gone maybe Gio could have been our go-to guy again, but it's not to be.
This is a big move for the Galaxy--Gio is a very recognizable part of the Mexican NT and there is of course a HUGE potential fanbase for the Galaxy in LA when you consider the Mexicans who have moved across the border (and the next generation).
We'll remember this:
