Andrew Tinari signing with the Tampa Bay Rowdies at some point this coming week, where Brandon Allen and David Najem will be as well.

 

Was this expected? He seemed like a big part of RB2, I figured could take a similar path as Bezecourt and land some first team minutes next season.

The translated quote is not much help. Why cant the family come here? Is it a visa issue? Or something else?
Did Kaku travel back to Argentina in the off-season?

 

Does it matter what the reason is if its causing him unrest to the point where he's pushing for a transfer?

In an alternate universe I'm not 100% sure I want to live in - Thierry Henry is coaching the Red Bulls and Bojan Krkic is signed to take the reigns from BWP

Jozy's durability is a huge red flag, he's started less than half of all possible games in two out of four seasons for Toronto.

How about a link to an actual article quoting Kaku?
If this rumor is circulating, there must be a source.

 

Source is a few translated quotes from Dave Martinez. What isn't clear is whether "family" means his immediate family or his extended family, if I recall correctly Kaku has about a billion siblings.

Lets call it what it is.  Why is this being debated?

 

Letting Kaku go for any amount of money at this point would be detrimental to the team.  We have no replacement for 6 goals and 14 assist.

Club America is to late.  Come calling in November/December, and we can make a deal happen. 

 

Bad enough they did not sign a Adams/RZA replacement, if RB does this they have no intent in competing for a title in any competition and need to get called out for that by the fans.

 
I've already seen too many people say they're OK with the move cause its financially responsible. As a fan how does that even enter the realm of priorities when we're talking about shipping our second best attacking player with little time to replace him? Those people gonna sit there smiling about missing the playoffs cause Papa Red Bull made a few bucks?
 
Kaku will be sold eventually, but doing so only a year into his contract without a real backup plan in place is not ideal.
