Juan Pablo Headed to the City of Angels?

Juan Pablo Angel, the Colombian star formerly of the New York Red Bulls, had his rights selected by the Los Angeles Galaxy.

The Red Bulls declined to pick up their contract option on the 35-year-old striker, who had been its team captain.

Angel has not said if he plans to return to the MLS. He reportedly is considering a return to play for the Colombian international team.

He became expendable when the Red Bulls, which had a new general manager and coach, added high-profile international players for high price tags. He earned nearly $2 million in 2010, according to MLS Players Union.

After a match in September -- ironically, against the Galaxy -- Angel seemed to see the writing on the wall.

"I have enjoyed my time here tremendously," he said. "With the players we have, this is the best squad. Whatever happens, I will wish the team well and move on."

The question now is, move on to where?
