Done deal: LA Galaxy sign Giovani dos Santos
The LA Galaxy have signed Mexican international Giovani dos Santos, the club announced today. Dos Santos is scheduled to join the Galaxy in August following the CONCACAF Gold Cup, pending receipt of his P-1 visa and International Transfer Certificate (ITC). Per League and club policy, additional terms of the deal were not disclosed.
In order to accommodate Dos Santos as a Designated Player on the Galaxy roster, Targeted Allocation Money was used to lower the budget charge of Omar Gonzalez, freeing a Designated Player slot.
“Giovani is a special player,” said LA Galaxy Head Coach and General Manager Bruce Arena. “He has experience and success competing at the highest level and we believe he will only continue to develop. We are happy to add him to our roster and have confidence he can be an integral part of our success going forward.”
