He's not pseudonym, the kid was really pretending Will Forbes is a real journalist when in fact he's just poaching stories from other media and then guessing what's about to happen.

    The whole thread outlines how thoroughly he's been debunked as phony.

    Still, be nice if he's right this time.

    Yeah I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s just taking educated guesses of what he thinks will happen, then floats those as “facts” in tweets.

    There was a report in Italy today that Belotti has turned down all overseas offers (Us, Newcastle and Al Hillal) as he wants to wait out until the summer for an offer from either Milan or Inter.

    Between that and the report his wife doesn't want to leave Italy I'm gonna wager he's a no go.

    he's just vague enough here so that if any of them happen he can say he was reporting on them. quality bullshitting imo.

    he's learned from his "my sources say 99.9% chance insigne not coming" tweet.

    Paulo Dybala has said he isn't returning to Juventus. He always struck me as a guy who loves money. Just saying.

    Looks like Soteldo to Sao Paulo is breaking down. He has also allegedly been offered to Flamengo.

    Its a fact that Jozy and Jefe wont be in camp tomorrow. But also a fact that Bob Bradley said "there’s a lot going on and it’s not easy to say yet how different things will play out.”

    Flamengo prepping an offer for salcedo apparently.

    could be real competition for him.

    That is extremely little, very bad for the general advancement of MLS.
    Just think how huge was the inflation in the last year, and this year will be the same.
    To have any kind of positive impact on the quality of the league, IMHO that spend on the roster should be going up with at least about 1 million.

    But anyways, this was a digression from the main subject of this thread.

    I find when there is a report of "prepping an offer" after another team has shown interest, this is agent talk on behalf of their client at least half the time.

    The fact that they are not even inviting them to camp at all is pretty telling. Soteldo they could make the excuse that he can go off and join his national team for WCQ's a bit early. Not inviting Jozy while he is technically under contract is basically what Chris Armas did to him last year.

    Teams in Brazil really don’t buy players.

    I will bet anyone that Solteldo is just going out on loan. Or he stays.

    If we are “competing” against Flamengo for Salcedo, that doesn’t exactly worry me.

    That makes the most sense but it isn’t clear how a loan has to be structured to clear the DP slot

    Totally. But if Jozy is going to play anywhere he needs a training camp. The exclusion by Armas was a real set back for him physically - he was way off the pace when he came back, even though he still had his touch in the box. For him to move somewhere, they need to know he can play.

    Flamengo are one of probably only 2 clubs in South America that have the resources to do this deal.

    However this makes it all the more likely that it's just agent posturing yo get more $$.

    Flamengo and Palmeiras were pissing money about pre-COVID. Pre-COVID a $5-6M would be easy for them.

    Pretty sure as long as he goes on loan, he comes off the DP as long as the other team pays enough of his salary. We did it once before when we had 4 DPs. Loaned Gilberto to Brazil, he came off the cap and wasn't a DP charge. Then when he returned from loan we had to give him to Chicago for free

    Re.: Salcedo...

    According to these posts and sites, not sure if they are credible or related, TFC is not even mentioned and not in the running for the player as of a few days ago.

    1/ Wolverhampton Wanderers
    2/ Bordeaux
    3/ Galatasaray
    4/ Palmeiras
    5/ Clubs in Germany
    6/ Clubs in Italy

    Wouldn't this also be something similar to what Miami had to do before the start of last season by loaning Pelligrini to Ft. Lauderdale to become compliant..it might have counted as their buyout too though

    He hasn't been in shape or on pace for a few years and that's not changing. He isn't going to move anywhere either because nobody will buy, trade, or swap for him as he is broken down and not worth what we've given him over the past 3 seasons. His only hope to play anywhere is to take a 1 year "show me" contract somewhere need of a forward.

    Also, it's not only than he out of game shape and sharpness, he is legit out of shape and that's why he is frequently injured. He Tweeted his wife working out in their fancy home gym in 2020 and it shouldn't be ignored that he came out of that lockdown in terrible shape. He should be kept away from the team as he has shown nothing but unprofessionalism for a couple of years, something BB addressed earlier after becoming our manager, and we don't need any of that around what should be a fresh start.

    Michael Singh reporting now Soteldo is gone and TFC is acquiring Salcedo from Tigres and those two moves may be related. That would be pretty interesting.

    Here's one that mentions TFC from yesterday. A few Toronto sources have also mentioned Salcedo, but not sure how much that is related to whatever Will Forbes said or if it's anything original.

    Swapping Soteldo for Salcedo would be tidy business. Really hope this is for real.
