Whither Christian Gomez?
Soccer By Ives, January 25th, 2008 5PM

MOST READ


If, as expected, Marcelo Gallardo signs for D.C. United, then Christian Gomez's days in the nation's capitol are numbered. Gomez is believed to be entertaining offers from abroad, but blogger Ives Galarcep believes the 33-year-old could resign with MLS and then move on via trade. Where would he end up? Should he decide to stay in the league, the 2006 MLS MVP would certainly be in high demand. Galarcep takes stock of the situation, and finds there really aren't too many viable scenarios.

Toronto, for example, would love to add a playmaker like Gomez, but what could they offer? Perhaps some allocation money and one of the either Julius James or Pat Phelan, the two first-round picks Mo Johnston and co. just selected in the MLS SuperDraft. Says Galarcep, "If there's a deal to be made here, then Mo Johnston will make it."

The Colorado Rapids are another remote possibility, but all Fernando Clavijo really has to offer in trade is Pablo Mastroeni. We know Mastroeni is on the market, but Galarcep says D.C. wouldn't be willing to pay extra for him. Kansas City, flush with cash following Eddie Johnson's move to Fulham, might consider unloading some of that money on Gomez, but Ives wonders if the Argentine playmaker would bother re-signing with MLS for a move to KC.
