Hi Everyone,
Not sure how trustworthy this source is, but I found this article on Soccer Source @ http://soccer-source.blogspot.com/2008/07/hakan-sukur-still-wants-mls-deal.html

Hakan Sukur still wants MLS deal

His purported deal with Toronto FC has been scrapped (or never existed in the first place, according to some reports (http://www.goal.com/en/Articolo.aspx?ContenutoId=778034)) but Turkey legend Hakan Sukur still wants to sign with a Major League Soccer team. The 36-year old "is free, available and wants to come to the U.S.," according to an individual with knowledge of the situation (don't you just love those?)

This would refute what appear to beTurkish press reports (http://medyaspor.com/v02/news.aspx?id=3942) of Sukur's retirement (no Turkish reader on staff, sorry).

Sukur holds the record for most goals scored in Turkey's top division (249, according to his Wiki page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hakan_%C5%9E%C3%BCk%C3%BCr#cite_note-3)) and for the Turkish national team (51 in 109 appearances). His professional career spans three decades and includes stints at Galatasaray (thrice), Inter Milan, Parma and Blackburn Rovers.

Looks like this is from the MLS Rumors school of journalism.

He wont be getting no $4 million, that's fact.

Found thiss earlier today that says that the earlier speculation was false:


However, the Turkish Daily News reports that he will not be playing in Turkey, planning on taking a contract abroad.

So this could still happen?

Read the soccer-source blog post closely. The writer is just speculating. The only link cited is the goal.com one and that says nothing about looking at another MLS team.
