Blackburn outcast wants LA Galaxy move

Michel Salgado is reportedly eyeing up a move to LA Galaxy when he leaves Blackburn as a free agent in the summer, according to Mirror Football.

The former Real Madrid full-back has been in and out of the Rovers starting line-up in his time in his time in England, and has had an injury plagued 2011-12.

It is believed that the veteran defender is keen to move out to the MLS, with a source close to the Spaniard speaking of Salgado’s desire.

“Michel felt he could have helped the team, but he was told before Christmas that he could not play. He was prepared to rip up his contract and agree to leave in the summer, but they said no,” the source admitted.

“The club wanted him to go in January, but he didn’t want to uproot his children before the end of the school year. Now he is considering offers from the Middle East and Qatar.”

Salgado played alongside Galaxy talisman David Beckham, and would like to join up with the Englishman on the American west coast.
