Not only is David Beckham leaving, but Juninho, the Los Angeles Galaxy's other central midfielder, won't be back in
2012. The 22-year-old Brazilian has signed a three-year agreement to return to Sao Paulo.
Juninho signed with the Galaxy on loan from Sao Paulo in 2010 and emerged as of the best Brazilian finds in league history.
Sao Paulo is high on Juninho, but he won't have an easy time breaking into the midfield, where Carlinhos Paraiba, Denilson, Jean, Casemiro, Wellington and Rodrigo Caio return and Cruzeiro's Fabricio has been signed.
