    Very interesting, you might be onto something but they paid 10 million for him 18 months ago. Last year he produced decently but his season Rennes are on a good run while he hasn't scored a goal yet.

    So maybe a loan move to get playing time and confidence back?

    Lyon is in Champions League final 16 while Rennes are sitting at 4th league. So no one from their bench or even near bench (nevermind starting 11s) are leaving for the pittance of 6 million $.

    Most realistic option is the above mentioned loan, Rennes are out of Europa and league cup, so only league matches ahead. They seem to have depth at forward with Siebatcheu the odd man out. I can see the possibility of a loan move to MLS for him personally as while he declined an invite to join the USMNT in the past, perhaps he wants to get a closer look at what USMNT are like before committing.

    The agent Curtis was with who posted that pic - anyone know who he reps at the game or who we might be interested in?

    I went down this road looking for some hints but came up empty. The agent's bio says Elite Athletes Agency, based on their website they're quite active in MLS and we've made a bunch of signings represented by them before. According to transfrmarkt they also represent Benezet. But I couldn't find anyone on Stade Rennais or Lyon that appears to be signed to them.

    So I'm gonna go ahead and assume we're getting Di Maria, who they do represent. Young 30s scoring winger in a top 4 European league...

    oK fair enough. I don’t agree but that’s a matter of opinion. Would be nice to see him as a 10 somewhere. Agreed.

    He's essentially MLS HQ's French fixer. If there is a French/France based player coming into MLS he's involved as an intermediary.

    He was involved in the Mavinga deal. He posted the picture of him signing his MLS contract a day or two before he was officially announced by TFC, in case anyone remembers.

    This tweet implies that TFV are also in the Netherlands looking at 25 year old Portugues winger Bruma

    Translation:
    Toronto is rumored to be in the Netherlands looking for a DP. Some cite the name of the Portuguese, playing at PSV, Bruma.

    There's absolutely no sourcing on that. I'd take no notice of it unless something credible emerges.

    I want to thank Bill Manning for creating hours of pointless Christmas fun for all of us.

    They’ll probably just sign Agudelo.

    They had a week to come to an agreement. Think its been well over a week now so that ship may have sailed.

    They just bought him, I doubt they're already giving up on him.

    I'd be thinking Berghuis or something.

    Going to be really interesting to see the kind of financial outlay they commit to this DP. Will speak volumes to the ambition and strategy of this FO going forward.

    My realistic dream would be someone like Fabio Borini who has an expiring contract, can play anywhere and suits Vanney's defensive tactics.

    Agreed. The defensive side is key. We need forwards that defend to maintain our tactical flexibility.

    lol maybe his wages would be the same as 1 good team moving forward. His new wages would be less then 2017 TFC's 20+ million for example. He would probably get 16-20 million he's not going to continue to earn 25+million in his next contract. Maybe Bale would consider MLS in 2021

    And we'll do better without another DP that spends more time with his feet up than on the pitch. We need a guy that's going to play.

    Watching Liverpool vs Flamengo World Club World Cup final ,Bruno Henrique for Flamengo looks like a left sided forward midfielder type maybe TFC should have a look.

    He's really good. I'm shocked at his value of 6.5 mill ok transfermarket. I'm sure he will stay at Flamengo or go to Europe.

    He was in Europe with Wolfsburg in Germany’s top league in the 2016-2017 season played in only 14 games for them scoring no goals . He left Wolfsburg after only one season and went back to Brazil and has been playing in Brazil ever since and putting up some impressive numbers. Therefore, maybe he might be interested in MLS since he has already played in Europe for that one season.

    Benezet saying thanks to the fans and staff in a tweet indicating he might not come back or he just might. Looks like they are negotiating but a bit apart. Mind you, he's in Europe right now so this might just be the vin.

    Manning said we could only bring him back if he wasn't TAM, so yeah, he's probably gone. Can't see him settling for only 200k or something.
