Chivas USA President Shawn Hunter confirmed on Friday that the team has received offers from multiple clubs in Europe for Brad Guzan, last season's Major League Soccer goalkeeper of the year. Some offers call for Guzan to leave Chivas USA this month, others call for him to leave in the summer. Guzan, 24, is in the final year of a three-year contract he signed after getting drafted. Hunter said he has talked to Guzan's agent about a contract extension, but that Chivas hasn't made any offers yet.

Their names are Juan Sebastian Agudelo and Mikkel Diskerud, and it might be worthwhile to memorize them now. By 2014, once the U.S. heads to the World Cup in Brazil ? qualification being a given ? they might be better known than Landon Donovan and DaMarcus Beasley were eight years ago when they went to the Korea/Japan 2002 tournament as relatively wet-behind-the-ears 20-year-olds. On Tuesday, the two made their debuts for the U.S. national soccer team and combined to make it a winning start.

vs. Chicago, 7:30, ESPN2, ESPN Deportes Site -- Home Depot Center. Radio -- 690. Records -- Chivas USA 4-6-2; Fire 6-4-1. Record vs Fire (2006) -- 1-0-1. Update -- Mexican icon Cuauhtemoc Blanco has been the target of opposing players in recent games as Chicago has lost two in a row, leading Coach Denis Hamlett to criticize MLS referees for not protecting his star. "We have a special player who can make special plays with the ball," Hamlett said. "And in the last three games there is a pattern where he's getting fouled six or seven times and the referees haven't figured out that it's a tactical play that these teams are doing."

Brad Friedel has seen plenty in his long career. This, though, is a new one. For the first time since he moved to the English Premier League back in 1997, Friedel has an American teammate. Another goalkeeper, no less. And, as if that wasn't enough, the new kid is named Brad, too. "That's kind of amazing, eh?" Friedel said as Brad Guzan laughed. The Brads arrived at Aston Villa by very different means. Friedel is a veteran goalkeeper who, at 37, was looking for a new challenge after eight seasons at Blackburn.

At Chivas USA's preseason training camp on the outskirts of Guadalajara in early February, goalkeeper Brad Guzan talked about the challenge of being "a white American" on the Mexican-owned-and-operated club. The pressure could be overwhelming if you let it, he intimated. Guzan could take solace at the time, though, in knowing he was merely the backup to Chivas de Guadalajara transplant Martin Zuniga and could take his time rounding into form.

Brad Guzan can hear the footsteps fast approaching. And Chivas USA's 20-year-old rookie goalkeeper is not afraid to look back. Because with veteran starter Martin Zuniga, who suffered a sprained left knee March 2, having played 90 minutes in a Reserve Division game Sunday, it's only a matter of time before Coach Thomas Rongen has a decision to make, one made tougher by the recent improved play of Guzan.

Jamie Moreno scored twice to help D.C. United defeat Chivas USA, 2-0, on Saturday at Washington for its first victory of the season. Moreno deflected Chivas goalkeeper Brad Guzan's sliding clearance into an empty net in the 59th minute, and added a goal in injury time, striking Jamil Walker's curling cross off Guzan's palm and into the top left corner.

The dream is rapidly turning into a nightmare for Brad Guzan. Three months ago, Guzan, 20, was on top of the world. On Jan. 14, the youngster from Evergreen Park, Ill., became the first player chosen by Chivas USA in Major League Soccer's 2005 draft. Had Chivas not lost a coin a flip with fellow MLS expansion team, Real Salt Lake, it would have had the top overall pick and Guzan would have been the No. 1 draft choice. As it is, no goalkeeper in MLS history had been selected higher.
