Badilla MLS bound?

New England has apparently set their sights on Deportivo Saprissa defender Gabriel Badilla. According to this report from Costa Rica, Badilla could soon join the MLS Cup runners-up.

With Badilla, 23, and Michael Parkhurst on the backline, New England would have the best young defensive pair in the league, and possibly the best defensive pair, period. Badilla would be an upgrade over Avery John, and quite a bit younger. Badilla played for Costa Rica in the 2006 World Cup. He's a central defender but can also play wide if need be.

If Badilla goes to New England that would be a slap in the face to Chivas USA. Both have the same owner! Does Vergara not know how old Suarez is? And what about their goalkeeper going on a trial to Boca Juniors? Should they try to groom that keeper to take over for Guzan? Seriously...
