Robbie Keane possibly moving to MLS

According to the Sun, Tottenham Hotspurs' star Robbie Keane could be moving to MLS with the Vancouver Whitecaps leading the pack to sign him. Paul Barber, former Spurs chief executive, is currently in charge of Vancouver and is looking to add his former associate to the squad.
In 2008, Keane made a dream move to Liverpool despite Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez not wanting to sign the Irishman. Keane was sold back to Spurs six months later after being frozen out of the squad by Benitez and has failed to find his form since. Keane did spend six months on loan last season with Celtic scoring 12 goals in 16 matches.
This would be a fantastic move if Vancouver or another team is able to sign Keane and rumour is New England is looking at signing Keane as well. Keane is a hard working player and would fit right in in MLS and surely become a fan favourite in no time. Keane could also be very marketable as opposed to other DPs or former DPs such as: Omar Bravo, Nery Castillo, Mista, Julian De Guzman.
Keane is only 30, and if he can stay injury free could have a long MLS career. He also would be a key signing at an early age, still. Again this would be a great move for any MLS team and for Keane himself who has had an illustrious career spanning some great European clubs that include: Wolverhampton Wanderers, Conventry City, Inter Milan, Leeds United, Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and Celtic.
