If you have heard or haven't Saragosa won't be protected in the expansion. WHY? If you go to soccernet.com click on US tab there is a link discussing this, good news, the loan deal apparently is a hefty price, and I would believe has restrictions that Saragosa can only play in MLS, wearing the LA Galaxy jersey. Because of the partnership the Galaxy has with Sao Paulo FC. This is great news, because this might mean that LA gets to have Marcelo Saragosa at least one more season.
