Cristian PAVON has landed in Los Angeles to sign with LA Galaxy of MLS.

The PAVON transfer saga looks to finally be reaching its conclusion as the Argentine is in Los Angeles reportedly negotiating with the club. No longer needed at Boca Juniors, PAVON has been heavily linked with a move to MLS for a few weeks and has been granted permission by Boca to speak and even undergo a medical, this via CBC Sports in America.

PAVON will look to secure the move as the MLS transfer window closes on Wednesday. He even posed in a picture holding a Los Angeles Galaxy shirt.

He is expected to sign a loan deal with LA Galaxy having the option to buy him.

  1. Originally I had thought that Pavon was suffering and benched not only because of loss of form but also more importantly because he did not suit alfaro’s style of play. In my view alfaro was building a more powerful hard type of midfield for boca future with players like mcallister, campuzano, capaldo, almendra, marcone etc where shutting down opponent play in the middle and controlled possession was more important. I thought he did not need a tricky wide speedster midfield-forward.

    But having seen el toto salvio come in and set boca right flank on fire in just two or three games with skill and pace I am more disappointed now. It looks like there was demand for that exact creative wide play in alfaro’s game plan all along but pavon really could not satisfy in nine months now. It’s a shame I hope he can go anywhere else now and try to reignite his career as he is still young otherwise he will be a waste.

  2. According to the German Source Transfermarkt.de ‘forum and various people from England, Santiago Ascacibar is facing a move to West Ham United – the transfer window in England closes in just two days.

    At the moment you can not say how safe these sources are. Of course, this can also be a hoax.

  3. If I am not mistaken, he will play under Guillermo Barros Scheloto and alongside Zlatan. This may be a positive side of the move since he was good under Scheloto. In my understanding, Scheloto’s teams play attractive football even if defensively weak. The coaching staff are mostly Argentines including Guillermo Barros Scheloto’s twin brother. And it will be good if he can form a deadly partnership with Zlatan.
