The idea of relocating is a big issue within the NFL right now as Los Angeles looks almost guaranteed to be getting an NFL franchise soon.

The Oakland Raiders, St Louis Rams and San Diego Chargers have all been linked with a move to the City of Angels and everyone is curious to see who will actually arrive.

Where will the Raiders land?

It now appears very likely that the San Diego Chargers are set to make the move north to become LA's NFL franchise.

But what of the other two teams? Have they now alienated their fans by announcing plans to relocate? Will they be able to bring success to their current locations?

The relocation rumours surrounding the Rams may have died off, but it seems almost impossible now that Oakland will be housing the Raiders for much longer.

Oakland fans may be hoping that a Chargers move to LA will secure their football's team future, but now that looks even less likely.

Raiders owner Marc Davis is apparently so eager to leave Oakland, that should the Chargers go to LA, he would consider taking their place in San Diego.

"Multiple sources, in fact, have said Davis has made it known San Diego is an option," - reports on the Raiders relocation

The fans in San Diego have made their protests about the team leaving very well known as they are passionate about the Chargers.

It didn't go unnoticed however that Raiders fans turned out in their droves during the team's road game against the Chargers and that has surely affirmed Davis' thought that San Diego will be a good option.

No more ground sharing

The Raiders currently share their ground with the Major League Baseball's Oakland Athletics and look set to secure their own stadium.

The future of the Raiders is certainly questionable but only time will tell where exactly they end up.
