Rumor of the Day: Figo to Some AEG Team or Other
I worded the title ambiguously like that because this more-than-likely piece of crap article is equally ambiguous. Allegedly Figo has signed a 2-year deal worth $10.2 mil to play for an unnamed AEG-operated MLS side, which despite what the hopelessly uninformed writer will tell you would be either LA or Houston (AEG no longer owns Chicago, and Figo is not a forward).
I doubt it but it could be true...who knows. I heard in August of 2006 from someone at AEG that LA was going to sign Beckham and due to the absurdity of the notion (at the time) I choked on my scotch in a fit of uncontrollable laughter. But for now I'm going to put this in the file next to the Figo to RBNY and Figo to New England rumors in 07 for what could be the first MLS transfer rumor troika.
