The New York Cosmos has been rapidly constructing their roster ahead of the NASL fall season, and have already added some name recognition to the squad with the recent addition of Marcos Senna.
Now it appears they could be lining up a move for another familiar name to European soccer fans in the states. Former Manchester United and Bordeaux striker David Bellion has been training with the Cosmos and is looking to secure a deal with the club.
Sources tell SBI that while the training stint is not formally a trial, Bellion is looking to sign on with the NASL side. No offer has been made at the moment, though sources tell is there is some interest in adding him to the club.
A player with Manchester United from 2003 to 2006, Bellion has spent the past seven years in France, on the books at Bordeaux. He has had multiple loan spells with Nice, but the 30-year-old striker has struggled for playing time at Bordeaux and appears ready for a new challenge in the USA.
What do you think of this development? Surprised the Cosmos are attracting interest from European players? Think Bellion would be a good signing?
