Landon Donovan is in talks to return to the LA Galaxy



Landon Donovan is the all-time leading scorer for the United States Men's National Team. He's the all-time leading scorer in Major League soccer. In fact, he's so important to the league, they named the MVP trophy after him. 

And now he's coming out of retirement. 

Sports Illustrated's Grant Wahl has confirmed the 34-year-old veteran has signed a contract that will see him return to his old team for the remainder of the season. The contract could be officially announced as early as Thursday night, and Donovan could potentially play as early as Sunday.

Donovan retired two years ago at 32, citing burnout and a lack of love for the sport. 

He could be signing the contract because he misses playing the game. Or, due to injuries and players leaving the team, the Galaxy may need another player. 

Here's Wahl's tweet.

U.S. soccer player Alejandro Bedoya ruminated on Donovan's choice in jersey number. 

Some on Twitter have poked fun at Donovan's age, comparing him to other older players.
