As the MLS season round into July, more teams are in need of that player or two that could bring them over the top and eventually MLS champions. Throughout the next month, MLS Transfers Blog will be citing all transfers, rumors and training stints. Here is this weekends Rumor Round-Up:
A source with close ties to the situation contacted MLS Transfers on June 12th about the possibility of Diego Forlan heading to Toronto. After finding out more, (and subtlety added here by Steven Goff ) we can confirm that TFC have been in contact with Diego and his agent about the possibility of a move to the Canadian side. Goff seems to think a multi-year, multi-million dollar deal will take place and sources close to the situation have confirmed that he should become one of the top three highest paid players in the league.
While it seems Trezeguet might end up at Rosario Central or Liga MX next season, it seems the New England Revolution are looking at a late bid to entice him to the Boston region. A source contacted MLS Transfers on July 6th and spoke on the subject.
"The Revs are aware of the interest down south but are seriously considering an offer if Trezeguet turns them all down."
More details to come on this matter.
Red Bulls Have Some Competition:
Empire of Soccer reported that the Red Bulls are targeting Paul Connelly, a rightback formerly of Leeds United. Looks like they'll have competition for the signing. A source says League One side Leyton Orient F.C. are looking to Connelly to help them for their promotion push into The Championship, the second division in England. Connelly played on loan last season at Portsmouth and Preston North End, making 19 appearances combined for both sides.
- Drogba to MLS is in the cards, reports Brian Lewis of the New York Post.
So what do you Revs and Toronto fans think? Hope these forward rumors come to fruition? Hope Connelly doesn't come to MLS? Excited at the prospect of Drogba? Leave comments below and let us know!
