Report: LA Galaxy turned down multi-million dollar offer for Gyasi Zardes

Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

Gyasi Zardes is a player who splits opinion among United States men's national team fans, but to his club team he's a valuable asset. In fact, the LA Galaxy rate him so highly that they don't want to sell him to Europe.

According to Alexi Lalas, the Galaxy turned down a $2.5 million offer from Turkish Super Lig side Trabzonspor for the U.S. international this summer.

To put that in perspective, strong reports suggest that FC Dallas are set to send Fabian Castillo to the same club for a reported $3-4 million transfer fee.

As we've seen with the Steve Birnbaum/D.C. United/Maccabi Tel Aviv transfer saga, MLS is a hotbed for bargain transfer hunting. It appears that the LA Galaxy were smart enough to fend off the low ball offers.

It appears as if Zardes' future lies in LA and MLS unless a great offer comes in and knocks their socks off.
