Headlines
Landon Donovan has turned down an offer to play for Real Salt Lake next season. Reports indicate that is may have been a Designated Player deal, as well. Talks had been going on for quite some time as RSL had been interested since LA Galaxy decided not to retain him. He has not given a reason for the denial nor has he indicated whether he wants to play in 2017 or not.

Brad Guzan is officially headed to Atlanta United at the end of the Premier League season. He has been in England since signing with Aston Villa in 2008. He is currently on a one year deal with Middlesbrough and occupies the backup keeper spot behind Victor Valdes. He will move on a free transfer once his deal runs out.

On the other side of the pond, Patrice Evra is leaving Juventus for Olympique Marseille on a free transfer. The French full back signed an 18 month deal with the famous Ligue 1 club. He last played in France with AS Monaco until he joined Manchester United in 2006.
