What are the L.A. Galaxy to do? After one and half seasons of having two of the biggest names in MLS on their squad, it appears that Landon Donovan won't be back in a Galaxy kit this year and don't be surprised if David Beckham is gone too.

Both Galaxy stars are on so-called short term loans with European clubs. Donovan is at Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga, on what is really an extended trial. Meanwhile, David Beckham recently suited up for A.C. Milan in its recent friendly with Hamburg. The 2008-09 Serie A season resumes this weekend and Milan travles to the Eternal City to take on A.S. Roma this Sunday. The rumblings coming out of San Siro and Milano is that David Beckham will likely see some action this weekend.

Meanwhile, former Galaxy General Manager, Alexi Lalas, has expressed his belief that DB23 will stay on as DB32 in Serie A.

But there is hope for the L.A. soccer fan, it appears that Brazilian great, Marta, will be signing with the WPS's Los Angeles Sol.,0,5451216.story
