Ashley Cole is not yet certain to move from Roma to the LA Galaxy, despite an official from the American club being quoted as saying a deal was “close”.
A formal announcement regarding the arrival of the former England international was said to be approaching, according to an unnamed Galaxy official quoted in the Los Angeles Times.
Galaxy coach and general manager Bruce Arena also added fuel to the fire by confirming he was in the process of strengthening the club’s squad.
“I would anticipate that we’ll add three or four players to our roster,” Arena said. “There are a lot of factors on why players come to our team as opposed to others.”
“The Galaxy have a good reputation. Our players from Europe that have played here or are playing here are good spokespersons for our club.”
