Los Angeles Galaxy striker keen on Premiership switch

Donovan experienced a disappointing stint with Bayer Leverkusen before joining the Galaxy in 2005.

“I’d love to play in the Premiership, I think that would be incredible,” Donovan said.

“I’d love to play in Spain.

“Whether that happens I don’t know but I think where my qualities are best would be in a team that plays. I’m not going to go and battle John Terry and expect to win but if I can get on a team that plays good soccer I think I could help.”

Donovan added on a move to England: “I watch games every weekend and it’s exciting watching those games and I think I could contribute on a lot of teams.

“It would be a much easier fit than most places, for sure.

“Obviously, there’s a lot of ifs. If the Galaxy is okay with me going, if the League is willing to accept an offer, if an offer comes.

“In my situation I can’t be super picky but if it’s the right offer and makes sense with the right team – there’s a lot of ifs.

“But from my standpoint I’m ready to take that step and I want to.

“Competitively I have that itch and I want to go and I will make that very clear to people.”
