Kaka and the 5 Biggest Names Linked with 2013 Moves to MLS

Dan Levy@danlevythinksNational Lead WriterDecember 13, 2012

With David Beckham now just a guy who used to play in America, the world football community is left speculating which international superstar will be the next to make the leap to the United States and MLS.

Make no mistake, the Beckham experiment was a success for the league, the Los Angeles Galaxy and the player himself. Thierry Henry and a host of other international names would not be in America today if there weren't a viable, healthy league to play in. 

Who is the next guy? Is it Kaka? American soccer fans sure hope so.

While he has recently affirmed his dedication to stay at Real Madrid, the 30-year-old may not have the choice if he actually wants to get on the field. The best thing for Kaka would be to move to a club where he can get more time. Certainly Los Angeles will be a great fit for him, whenever he decides to come.

There are some other names as well, as outlined in this video, with the most obvious being England superstar Frank Lampard, who is out of contract at the end of the year with Chelsea.

Could some of his former teammates be making the trip with him? Will Didier Drogba right the wrong of taking a money-grab in China and come to America to play?

Things are going to be very interesting in MLS this transfer window.
