What?! wow!!

Isn't he like 35 or 36 now? and injury prone?
Regarding age, yes.
Regarding injury....yes-ish? Some say yes, some say on par with a player his age.

My understanding is that he would play as our #10, with Puig finally playing where he actually plays: #8.
Brugman / Cerrillo / Delgado at the #6. Being that Puig and Reus are "not the best at defending", Yamanne will stay more inside to help out (which he has shown to do quite a few times this season).

Others are saying he can play a false 9 role as well.

"If" Reus can stay healthy, he would solve the G's Achilles Heal: Puig.
Teams would no longer be able to smother Puig because Reus would be the similar creative threat. Two creatives on the pitch would be tough to defend with Pec and Painstil on the wings. The G's offensively would no longer feel the need to "pass Puig the ball from the back" and wait for Puig to dribble through the entire midfield.....the team would now have two offensive outlets in the midfield.

If Messi can still get it done, why not Reus?

Word is the contract is max TAM, for 18 months with a one year club option.
 
Your new Jovan in the front office. Hearing this guy has SERIOUSLY good connections.

Lewandowski to Galaxy rumors galore today.
Reuniting Reus and Lewandowski.

Crazy! I'm going to say it's all noise, because I can't see how Kuntz can get this done with all DP spots taken, and apparently Reus is max TAM.

I don't see a way that Pec or Paintsil could have their contracts brought to TAMwith longer contract lengths to open up a third DP spot....add to that Pec us a young DP, so it would screw up all the other U22's on the roster if he is not a young DP.

It would be amazing to have Reus and Lewandowski, as both would fill needs in the G's lineup, but contract wise, MLS rules still handcuff moves like this unfortunately.

However, Kuntz was involved in making the MLS rules, so he knows them inside and out, so if there is a way to do "something" Will would be THE guy who could make something happen.
 
MLS Cup 2025 - Lewandowski and Reus' Galaxy against Messi and CR7's Miami....if you believe the rag sheets
 


Like the kid, but he needs to play more, and the G's probably need to clear out space in the midfield for Reus.
 


Apparently his contract was up at the end of the year, so getting $250k is pretty good.
Best of luck, Daniel.
