We continue our MLS offseason coverage here on The Stoppage Time with news regarding one of the flagship clubs of the competition. Bruce Arena‘s Los Angeles Galaxy are making waves once again. This time, the club has transferred midfielder Juninho to Club Tijuana of Liga MX. From MLSSoccer.com…

“We thank Juninho for his contributions on and off the field during his time here,” LA Galaxy head coach and general manager Bruce Arena said in a statement. “We wish him the best of luck with Tijuana.”

The 26-year-old midfielder, who started his professional career with Brazilian club Sao Paulo, his hometown club, joined LA on loan during the 2010 MLS season. His stay with the Galaxy was made permanent ahead of the 2013 season.

In 187 appearances – of which 180 were starts – Juninho scored 18 regular-season goals and recorded 23 assists. He is coming off one of his finest seasons with the Galaxy in 2015, scoring four goals and recording a career-high seven assists.

Meanwhile, Ashley Cole could be on his way to the Galaxy next year after contract talks at AS Roma failed to materialize. From ESPNFC.com…

Cole has been frozen out at current side AS Roma after refusing to cancel his contract at the beginning of the current season. After leaving Premier League side Chelsea in the summer of 2014, Cole made just 13 league and cup appearances with Roma during the 2014-15 campaign.

Prior to that, Cole was regarded as model of consistency at both club and international level. He spent eight seasons with Arsenal, winning two Premier League titles and three FA Cups. He then moved to Chelsea, where he won one more league title, four more FA Cups, and a League Cup. He also on a UEFA Champions League medal and a Europa League title during his time with the Blues.

Cole made a total of 107 international appearances with England, and played in three World Cups.
