LA GALAXY HAVE announced the signing of Emiliano Insua from Stuttgart, with the left-back reportedly being allowed to leave the Bundesliga side on a free transfer.
The former Liverpool man, who turns 31 next week and had just six months left on his previous contract, won a La Liga title and Copa del Rey during his time with Atletico Madrid, while also helping Stuttgart gain promotion back to the German top flight in 2016-17.
He joined Rafael Benitez at Anfield back in 2007 and made 62 appearances for Liverpool, scoring once, before being offloaded to Galatasaray on loan for the 2010-11 season and then being sold permanently to Sporting.
The veteran full-back will occupy an International roster spot with the Galaxy, pending receipt of his International Transfer Certificate (ITC) and P1 Visa.
Th club’s general manager, Dennis te Kloese, said of Insua, who has been capped five times by Argentina: “Emiliano is an experienced defender who has played for decorated clubs throughout the world.
“We think he will boost our team on the defensive side and will add a veteran presence to our club. We are glad to add Emiliano to our team and are excited that he will represent the LA Galaxy.”
