"We haven't heard anything from Bayern Munich about Landon [Donovan] going on loan to that team."
-- MLS Commissioner Don Garber
at a press conference last Friday. On
Thursday, Bayern Munich's official Web site reported that Landon Donovan
had gotten the oral go-ahead from MLS to go on loan to Bayern Munich from Jan. 1 until the beginning of the
MLS season in March in a deal similar to Galaxy's teammate David Beckham's
with AC Milan. The Bayern Web site also cited Bayern coach Juergen Klinsmann
as saying he
could imagine a longer-term acquisition of Donovan.
