STAR SEARCH: In L.A., Kevin Baxter noted the MLS Galaxy are "deep in talks with representatives" for EPL club Chelsea MF Frank Lampard. He will be a free agent this summer but yesterday said that he "hasn't discussed a new deal with his English Premier League team for at least two weeks." The "transfer window opens Tuesday." The Galaxy said that privately it believes Lampard "could provide some of the international star power the team lost" when Beckham retired. A Galaxy official said that the team also "remains interested in [Real Madrid MF] Kaka and will revisit that idea again next year" (LATIMES.com, 12/30).
