MLS has made progress, but it's not a good place for top Americans

It happens like clockwork. Every year, Landon Donovan's name is linked with some European soccer team.

The latest story had AS Roma interested in bringing Donovan to Italy. Boston investor Thomas DiBenedetto expressed interest in bringing Donovan and Michael Bradley to the team where he has gained a controlling interest.

Donovan quickly dismissed the rumor. His agent Richard Motzkin tweeted, "Appreciate the interest but why would @landondonovan leave MLS for the same salary?"

When asked about the Roma rumors himself by Adam Serrano for, Donovan responded, "Don't waste my time with that."

Why? Oh gosh, so many answers. Level of play? Level of passion? Level of importance?
