Does this equation work?
Dave Kasper, DC United general manager, said, "We believe we're close to resigning Jaime, and we're still in negotiations with Christian. If he doesn't re-sign, we have a plan and we can act very quickly to replace him."
Marcelo Gallardo has left Paris St. Germain, his contract has been terminated, and the word out of Argentina is that he's headed to MLS and turning down other offers.
Adiós Christian Gomez, hola Marcelo Gallardo (and maybe Terry Cooke and/or Pablo Mastroeni, if the other rumors are to be believed...)
a happy Longshoe (although it will be sad to see Gomito go, the team will get a whole lot better as a result)
