Here come the Big Boys
The LA Times
is reporting that Chelsea, AC Milan and Real Madrid will be in the US next month playing MLS teams.
Real will play a couple of games in LA at the HDC. One of them will be against LA Galaxy, the second opponent hasn't been named yet. Chelsea will be in DC playing DC United and AC Milan will play the Fire in Chicago. Milan and Chelsea will play against each other as well.
AEG/MLS/SUM--or at least one of those intertwined organizations bought the rights and contacts to the Champions World tour last month which has brought top European teams to the US the last couple of summers. Now this event has a new twist.
Also, last summer AEG owned LA Galaxy had been working to bring Real Madrid to LA for a friendly. Looks like it took another year to organize.
I'm sure we'll be hearing more about this in the next few weeks.
