Landon Donovan is the all-time leading scorer and leading assister in Major League Soccer history. He's also the all-time leading scorer in U.S. Men's National Team history.
He retired from professional soccer in 2014, but according to a slew of new reports, the now-34-year-old is returning to the game and rejoining his old club, the L.A. Galaxy.

Donovan previously played for the Galaxy from 2005-2014, spending three seasons on loan to Bayern Munich and Everton. In that span he helped the Galaxy to four MLS Cups.
The California native also scored 57 international goals in 157 appearances with the national team.
He stepped away from soccer at age 32, six months after being left off of the 2014 World Cup roster by Jurgen Klinsmann.
The four-time U.S. Soccer Athlete of the Year has worked a broadcaster for both ESPN and Fox Sports the past two years.
