Chivas USA General Manager José Domene admitted to Major League Soccer’s official website that the club has talked with Santa Ana. The Santa Ana Register reported not too long ago that Domene had no information concerning “formal negotiations” with Santa Ana. The Register did include one of Domene’s statements where he said, “If formality means putting things in writing on what a potential project could be, then I would say yes. “We’ll consider their bid, their options, just like we’ll consider everyone else.”
This is no indicator of a commitment on behalf of the club to move here. This is only a verification of talks, which are still not advanced. The club is still studying options besides Santa Ana, including Pomona and possibly the LA Coliseum area.
