plus he was paid at DP level, and hasn't played all that much. think Claudio Reyna, but without the retirement that put him out of his misery at RBNY. 


RIP Guillermo Romulo, Alexander Francis Orig and Celenio Eleazar.

 

RIP Cesar Castello and Mike Vallo

Javier Pastore.  Wants out of PSG (reportedly).  28 year old attacking midfielder, who can also play out wide.  Somewhat of a big name.

 

He wants to move to get playing time, so he gets called up by Argentina for the World Cup.  So he probably wouldn't consider MLS.  Also, his contract still has a year and a half to go, and PSG will probably want to maximize the transfer fee to help with FFP problems after Neymar and Mbappe.  But if TFC can get Giovinco, maybe anything's possible.

Would instantly be the best player in MLS. Hes really an underrated talent. Hes had his fair share of injuries and I think thats why he doesnt get as much hype as he probably deserves.

Word is atlanta united is trying to sign ezequial barco for 15 mill.


Exactly the player we should be going after. Would be huge for the league to get someone like that.

At this point would anyone bet against Toronto, Atlanta and Blood Money FC dominating the East for the foreseeable future? Teams that build rosters by dumpster diving and the soccer version of extreme couponning are going to struggle in MLS 3.0.

50,000 tickets per game lets you do that.     If we splashed $15M on a guy, especially a Barco-type guy unknown to suburban soccer parents and kids, we'd still only average 15,000 butts in seats, until we'd won at least 2 or 3 MLS Cups.

I like the Pastore idea, these fringe players that are immensely talented but only fringe because they play with stacked teams should be MLS targets in this era.. More Giovincos less Veróns and Kaka..

I like it.. I would also throw in players that are having stand out international campaigns for their clubs in South America

Hearing that Gyasi Zardes could be on the move this offseason. Per source, potential landing spots for #USMNT attacker are DC, Columbus and Vancouver.

 

For what it's worth I like Zardes.  I think he's a good player in this league.  Not totally sure on what his best position/formation is and I don't see how he fits with us, but it's worth noting that he's available.

$577k for a striker that's scored 12 goals in the last three years, yikes he's been coasting since that 2014 season.
