    Orlando say they have no transfer deal on Larin. They are suing to stop it.

    Petrasso is another good player who might have Raheem Edwards like season with Impact.

    Not sure how he's an Idiot. Castillo and Camilo did the same thing without repercussion. I'm not sure how this is different. Orlando are just fighting this to save face about the fact they could have gotten anywhere up to a rumored 10 million euros for him a year ago, only to now inevitably giving him away for free.

    I donít see why it makes him anything of the sort. Anything he does is going to be at the behest of his agent.

    Further... remember Camilo Savenzo? That worked out pretty well on his part. The legality of some of MLSís contract terms are dubious.

    Caps ended up getting a 'couple of million' in transfer fee for Camilo. Castillo was under contract ('legit' one) when he tried to force a move to Turkey mid season. Dallas ended up getting like 4 mil in transfer fee anyways. In either case, I'd be very surprised if both of them end up playing again in MLS, though I hear Castillo might come back after his Turkey stint turned up bad.

    Larin signed a contract knowing the clauses. FIFA has ruled mostly in favour of the player in case of unilateral contract options, but not in all cases. And in MLS's eyes, US labour law trumps FIFA and should be interesting if FIFA is willing to go to war with USSF and MLS over Larin.

    Not sure who lawyered up first but Orlando was moving on regardless. Neither side really wants this to go to court. This will get settled, a fee will get paid.

    My questions are:

    Will Larin get better over there?

    Will Larin play better for the NT because of this?

    the fee for Camilo was undisclosed. The Whitecaps can sooth their fans worries by telling them they got millions out of it but if they did there would be no reason not to disclose the fee.

    Castillo may have been technically different but it was the same in practice. The Club didn't sell him when he wanted to, forcing Castillo's hand and pushing him to go to Europe on his own and take matters into his own hands. Dallas didn't want to turn over his player card, dragging the whole thing out until finally they got a very reduced price for him. The player and his intended club have all the leverage in these situations. They can refuse to play for you, and you can withhold their playing card in return until as long as you want but all it does is reduce their value and leaves your team worse for wear.

    This is 100% about saving face for Orlando and the league. These transfer rule changes can't come soon enough. Will make instances such as these a much less common occurrence in this league.

    ^ this is it. From a business perceptive, the tactic appears to work, regardless of what sort of fairy tales MLS wants to sell people on.

    Union just went from not good to not good in the near future.

    Fire though get rid of a problem and get a lot of dough to spend on somebody who can work with others.

    So Atlanta officially signs Barco. Im confused, on wiki it says they have 4 DPS... Barco, Villalba, Almiron, and Martinez. How does this work?

    You have until the start of the season to become roster compliant, so the 4 DPs is fine, as long as they have 3 by season start time (as others have mentioned they will buy down one with TAM).
    We've had 4 DPs times at once twice.
    1) Laba, Defoe, Bradley, Gilberto (traded Laba to Vancouver to be roster compliant)
    2) Altidore, Bradley, Giovinco, Gilberto (sent Gilberto on loan to Brazil)

    Technically, there were two other times we had 4 DPs
    3) Altidore, Bradley, Giovinco, Giberto (when Gilberto returned from loan, we immediately waived him to be roster compliant and the Fire picked him up)
    4) Altidore, Bradley, Giovinco, Vasquez (signed Vasquez and immediately TAM'd him down to non DP),
