With that Beckham fellow living the high live in Milan until July, the mantle of marquee player in MLS falls on the shoulders of Mexican striker Cuauhtemoc Blanco. Apparently the Mexican icon, like the Englishman, isn't exactly hunky dory with his status. But unlike the Galaxy player, Blanco has flat-out said he'll be leaving the Chicago Fire after the 2009 season concludes.
"I''m leaving this year. My contract will be done, and I will leave happy because I have great teammates. It's a decision I made. I'm going to look for other options." Blanco told the Chicago Tribune Tuesday.
