    He has a season and half left in the tank for sure. He wouldn't cost much and he is 10 times better than Buchanan.

    So, in the meantime some fun... for me predicated and premised on the following suppositions for the upcoming window...

    That Bill Manning would not be meeting with Federico Bernadeschi if TFC finances somehow couldn't be managed.
    That Domenico Criscito is joining his BFF Lorenzo Insigne in a 'package deal'.
    That Chris Mavinga is around for this window at least.
    That Carlos Salcedo and Chris Mavinga cannot play beside each other.
    That one other addition is, or a couple of other additions are, likely to be made.
    That BBradley uses a 4-3-3 or derivative like a 4-2-3-1 ( Pivot ).

    A possible starting line-up may look like this by mid-July?

    --------QW---------
    -SO--CS---DC--CM-
    ---MB---------JO---
    --------AP---------
    --FB-----------LI--
    --------JJ---------

    Giovinco and Criscito follow each other on Instagram (I think that's new) and Gio just liked his most recent photo after not liking any photos of his before. They did overlap for a number of games with Italy, so could be connecting about life in Toronto.

    FB rumour just got a little more interesting?

    Napoli out of the running!?

    Comments seem to be mostly expressing relief.

    More interesting developments.

    IIRC there is an earlier connect between the two by Primavera-Juve?

    For them, they really ought to be setting their sights on bigger targets than FB if they want the scudetto, but for us, currently struggling against CPL sides, it would be great.

    Absolutely get what you are saying and agree.
    IMO Fede is somewhat of a divisive player in SerieA and ITLMNT; has his supporters and detractors.
    Gifted with talent, versatile as a player, seems he has never lived up to the potential bestowed upon him early in his career.
    I understand how for some his stats v. compensation at Juve are not that exciting.
    Still, in Italy's league and national played systems, I think he is defensively ok/sound for a winger and attacking midfielder/second striker.
    Perhaps with a change in scenery, maybe he gets his offensive mojo back to his early years at Crotone as well as Fiorentina.
    CPL/MLS V SerieB/SerieA should offer him that environment and opportunity.

    Why on earth would LAFC want Bono? They shelled out a million for Crepeau, they can get a back up for way less than 1/2 a million.

    I'd be happy with Vittoria. He'd be an upgrade on everyone else at CB. Salcedo is seeming like a flop.

    Somebody wants him and they have a history of being stupid with money at that position.

    Toronto FC loan Kadin Chung, Ralph Priso and Jordan Perruzza to Toronto FC II of MLS NEXT Pro.

    So is this just a one-game, we need bodies thing? Or does this mean we're getting a right back, a striker and a defensive midfielder?

    We can recall them at any time. I'd figure it's just getting them minutes during the extended time off.

    Those loans are on again off again all season. Basically like sending a player to AHL. Greg Ranjitsingh has been going back and forth all season on his "loan"

    It isn't much, but it is starting to be reported on. Didn't we first get linked to Insigne when Manning was spotted having dinner with him in Italy?

    I dunno man, he was pretty terrible at Philly and he was four years younger.

    Some guys play well against organized, tactical football because they grow up playing in it. They're great in a solid unit but in MLS, where things aren't as cohesive, they really struggle.

    Difficult to be sure. His concacaf opposition is not always terribly organized and tactical (and the region in general has been a big influence on the way MLS teams play). And the Canada back line is half Club Foot’s.

    Bernardeschi is basically a meme among many Serie A fans, myself included, so I can't help but groan despite the likelihood of him succeeding in MLS. I've been conditioned. I wouldn't blame him if he wanted to get away (somewhat) from the derision.

    He would kill it here. He’s 6’1, can dribble, and will be deadly in the box. Might even do better than insigne if he comes

    So this whole rumour is based on someone supposedly seeing him dining in Yorkville?
