Villareal just about offloaded him for peanuts to Atletico Madrid, but the deal feel through. That's what they are saying on the Boca boards anyway. Apparently he was available for 10 million Euros in transfer fee and a 3 million Euro per year salary. Seriously, how can MLS have failed to seize this opportunity, which has been more or less on the boil ALL YEAR LONG. Riquelme should be on his way to, say, Houston, or maybe DC, RIGHT NOW. Or MLS should have made a deal to reserve him as the Quakes DP with a loan move back to Boca in the interim. The people, at whatever levels, in the league office or the club offices, who failed to make something like this happen need to be identified and fired. Why should the Galaxy be the only organization in MLS that can pull off a blockbuster deal on a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity? It's absolutely shameful. Fans of other teams (and even of the Galaxy) who criticize Lalas should shut their traps because he did his part to get an epic deal done, and every other MLS FO blew it big time when they had the chance at an iconic, and frankly far superior, player (and from Latin America to boot!) for far less money on a silver platter. Less than $20 million for three years of Juan Roman! How dumb do you have to be to pass on that!
