Donovan, 35, came out of retirement last year to rejoin the Galaxy, playing in nine games and scoring once, before calling it quits again in December. The six-time winner of the MLS Cup is the all-time leader in goals and assists in Major League Soccer.

The property previously sold five years ago for $1.55 million, property records show. It was leased out in 2015 at $8,000 a month.

Yvonne Arias of the Property Lab was the listing agent. Beata Mandell of the Executive Realty Group represented the buyer.
