Jens Lehmann linked to MLS, Sounders FC?

This story showed up in my Google Alerts feed this morning, linking German goalkeeper Jens Lehmann with a move to Major League Soccer (particularly New York and Seattle).
The 40-year-old most famously played for Arsenal from 2003-08, sharing the field with Freddie Ljungberg for a couple years. He’s also logged many starts for Schalke 04, Borussia Dortmund and is currently with Stuttgart.
An obvious talent, sure. But he’s a bit of a headcase to put it lightly.
He’s also the same age as Kasey Keller, who is still in top form and hoping to still in Seattle for a couple years.
I give this a 2.3% chance of happening. But I wanted to pass it along. Any thoughts?
