Landon Donovan's on-again-off-again-on-again love affair with European soccer continues. Soccer365 reports that Donovan's agent said "many European teams" are interested in the LA Galaxy's leading scorer. If LD heads back to Europe it could be rough times ahead for the Galaxy and MLS. With LD gone and Beckham doing his best to sabotage his remaining days in LA, the league will struggle without a marketable poster boy.
