This Gulbransvenjurgenborg guy certainly passes the all-important eye test, and worked his butt off for the few minutes he was out there (maybe he was just trying to keep warm). The potential of him and Royer having a big impact this year gives me hope against the bus-parkers. I'm going to go out on a limb as say Veron's gone in July unless he takes a massive pay cut, which may be reasonable given the state of things for him back home. (isn't that when is contract would be up? Isn't his transfer fee paid off against the cap by then?)
The league never disclosed Veron's actual contract terms, but I can't imagine it would expire mid-season. When Grant Wahl originally dropped the news, he cited a 5 year contract with 3 guaranteed, my guess is that 2017 counts as the third year. So there's no getting rid of him this summer unless another team buys him (unlikely) or Red Bull buys out his contract (not gonna happen).
I'd also guess that they would have paid the $2M transfer fee by the end of this year, can't imagine MLS wants a scenario where we no longer have a player on the roster but we're still paying fees to his old team.
