That's because mls does not pay it's players. But if we paid Kemar like he is a top 3 player on the team he would stay. It's funny how the likes of Vernon and Baah can stay on the team for 2 and 3 years or more but our good to very good players are let go. And we wonder why we can't win MLS cup or champions league.
We're not cursed. We're just cheap as hell!
Both Agudelo and Miazga were clear - there was no offer any MLS team could make that would change their mind about playing in Europe. We even offered Miazga a DP contract, several of them according to Curtis. Its very much the reality of where MLS stands in the world of soccer that money alone won't always keep players around.
And like others have said, if its clear that the player is leaving at the end of his contract no matter what, then you kind of have to get something or replacing them gets that much more difficult.
