The LA Galaxy hopes to convince a World Cup winner to trade Marseille, France, for Carson, California.
Adil Rami, 33, may be rejoining former teammates Zlatan Ibrahimovic (AC Milan) and Jonathan Dos Santos (Valencia) in LA.

Rami has a deal with Marseille through 2022, but a France Football report says the Galaxy is hoping to land him between July and August this summer.
Rami is 36-times capped by France, scoring a goal against Iceland in 2012. He was a regular starter in two EURO tournaments, but did not see the field as a member of the 2018 World Cup-winning squad.
Another person will have some L.A. experience to share with Rami, as the defender is said to be dating actress Pamela Anderson.
