Rumor: LAFC joins the queue of clubs interested in Bob Bradley

Interesting as it would be to see Bradley back in MLS, LAFC won't start playing until 2018 and Bradley is linked to a new club almost every month at the moment.

Sports lllustrated's Grant Wahl has found "a source close to Swansea City" (Landon, is that you?) to confirm the not-really-in-doubt story that Bob Bradley is on the Welsh club's radar as a possible replacement for current head coach Francesco Guidolin.

Wahl also reports LAFC's interest in the former MetroStars and USMNT manager.

About a month ago, Bradley told the Soccer Today podcast that he might return to coaching in MLS, if it were an opportunity he considered aligned with his soccer principles.

Bradley signed a two-year contract with Ligue 2's Le Havre in November 2015; LAFC doesn't start to play in MLS until 2018: the rumor has something to recommend it.

But Bradley is now routinely linked to managerial vacancies with English clubs (Aston Villa and Sunderland last year; Hull City this summer), and he is currently trying to get Le Havre promoted to Ligue 1. If he's coaching a top-flight European club in 2018, LAFC will likely be out of luck.
