The Chargers could reach a resolution with the Rams by the end of the week about the team’s potential Los Angeles relocation, reportsThe San Diego Union-Tribune’s Kevin Acee.

The Chargers were given a one-year option to join the Rams in Los Angeles after the team announced its move from St. Louis on Jan. 12.

“Their goal is the end of this week,” a source close to the proceedings said about the Chargers on Wednesday night.

The same source also told the Union-Tribune that making the move to Los Angeles “is what [the Chargers] want to do. That’s where … it’s headed.”

According to another report by Acee, the Chargers have acquired land in Orange County, Calif., which is suspected to be used as the team’s new practice facility.

The Rams, Chargers and Oakland Raiders each applied for relocation to Los Angeles. The Chargers’ initial plan was to build a joint stadium with the Raiders in Carson, Calif., which was ultimately rejected by the league’s owners. 

The Rams’ new stadium in Inglewood, Calif., is projected to open in 2019.
