Guzan Linked to 'Multiple' European Clubs

Several European clubs, according to Chivas USA President Shawn Hunter, want Chivas USA's Brad Guzan, the 2007 MLS Goalkeeper of the Year.

Some clubs want to sign him before the European transfer window closes at the end of January; others are prepared to wait until the summer.

"We have multiple offers from multiple teams," Hunter said, though he wouldn't comment on which clubs were in question.
