How much are they asking for Mr. Donovan? From my point of view, he is one of the greatest strikers we have. Would love to se him play in the PL.

In general, The major league doesnt hold as high level as the best europeen leagues: England, Spain and Italy. If Donovan makes a lot of goals in the US, doesnt meen he will succeed in England. Thats why I think spending to much on him might be a gamble. But, I didnt find out how much they are asking.
