Valencia - MLS All-Star Game Opponent?

Steve Goff, the Soccer Insider, is reporting that Valencia is the leading candidate for the All-Star Game opponent on July 29th at Rio Tinto Stadium. He also indicates that a decision is expected next week.

Not quite the top-notch opponent that had talked about in Milan, Inter, Real Madrid, etc. The team is still a quality side and features star striker, David Villa. They currently sit tied for 5th in La Liga.

The team also raised eyebrows in recent weeks for failing to pay their players. This move is likely done in order to help raise some cash to help the team meet their financial obligations.
