Carlos Bocanegra is a free agent

In news that surprise absolutely no one, Carlos Bocanegra and 3rd-tier Rangers have agreed to part ways.

Both players had a year left on their contracts but have agreed to terminate their deals.

Bocanegra spent last season on loan at Racing Santander while Goian was loaned to Spezia.

Rangers say Romanian Goian wants to find a new club in England while American Bocanegra is keen to play in his homeland.

The former US captain (it’s weird to type that) moved to Rangers in 2011 from Saint Etienne. Many expressed disappointment in the move at the time, although it struck me as an effort by Bocanegra to get one more decent-sized payday before his European career was played out. Of course, few realized at the time that Rangers was about to go Bear Stearns. Bocanegra’s loan to Santander in the Spanish 2nd division was entirely about trying to get his relatively large contract off the books as Rangers prepared for the brave new world of trips to Albion Rovers and Peterhead.

The article mentions Bocanegra’s desire to return to the US which has been floating around for a while and seems to be on the verge of happening. If the additional rumor of Bocanegra’s preference for playing in California is true, then the only questions left are which LA team it winds up being and what they give up for the top spot in the allocation order.

    Er, couldn’t San Jose be an option?

  2. Trent Hill says:

    I mean, I know they just brought in Goodson–but it’s POSSIBLE, lol.

  3. Howie says:

    Bringing in Goodson pretty much guarantees that Boca won’t go there. They already have Bernardez, Jason Hernandez, and Nana Attakora in central defense. Boca isn’t playing LB in MLS (particularly ahead of Morrow).
