Juan Pablo Angel to the Union?

The weekend's rumors have turned into fact, and Philadelphia Union fan favorite, captain, and some kind of weird greaser Danny Califf is headed to Chivas USA, pending league approval.

The player going the other way is suspected to be -- hey the initial rumors proved to be true -- Red Bulls all-time leading goal scorer Juan Pablo Angel.

The move would help Philadelphia's offensive out put and would make Angel the first player of any consequence, sorry Chris Konopka and Chris Albright, to make the move down the Jersey Turnpike.

This wouldn't be the first time Angel has been connected with the Union. In August, before Angel switched Home Depot Center dressing rooms, then-Union 'keeper Fayrd Mondragon planted the seed in Philadelphians minds.
