The sale would not be ideal but we would still be a quality team with out kaku.

We are due for a sup-par season


Years ending in 9 have not been kind to us.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

I am not sure if moving to Mexican league would be considered a move up. Rbny can always match club Americas salary demands and MLS is just as good or even better in getting players to europe.

He's not even that great. He basically became invisible in the second half of the season. I want him here still and I doubt we find someone better in the next month.

That reads to me like 'Club America come and get me, I'll be patient"

Club America is way more prestigious than Red Bulls, no doubt about it.

The interest though is confusing. He's a decent player, but like the poster above me said, not a proven great player. His form has been terrible for a while now.

CCL results say otherwise, and you could see why a native Spanish speaker would find the lifestyle more comfortable in Mexico as well. Either way, Kaku is constantly posting quotes like that, I don't think this one means any more than the others.

 

We'd preferably have him for more than one season but fans do need to understand that Kaku will be sold at some point. I don't think Red Bull invests $6M in a player they didn't fully intend to flip.

As if there is a dearth of native Spanish speakers in NYC! Probably more Argie dialect here than in Mexico City.

CCL results just says that Mexican Teams have more depth and better role players. An argument could be made that MLS has better elite players, and does a better job in paying these players and are more likely to be sold to europe. From a player's perspective, a move to mexico is not going to get you more exposure than MLS, or pay. Plus, culturaly... Mexican culture is different than Argentinian culture. Not drastically... but there are differences in food, ways of saying things and certain customs. He is more likely to likely to get those things in NYC then in Mexico City.

Fair point. But that is not the case within the Team, from Management down to teammates. Hence why Kaku was taking English classes before coming to RB. He still probably is.

US dollar is the "gold" standard of currency. Low inflation, accepted worldwide.

 

MLS owners are financially solid. Paycheck very unlikely to bounce.

 

Don't want to open a hornet's nest with other issues, use your imagination.

I think the club could also dangle a possible future move to Leipzig or Salzburg in front of him to entice him to stay. 

 

There is absolutely no reason to sell him for 6 or 7 million.  As a league, MLS cant be selling players at a discount rate to Liga MX clubs.
