    Wout Weghorst beyond our grasp?
    How about a Vincent Aboubakar?
    Sure he would not mind being refereed by Ismail Elfath again.



    A little musical love by a neighboring Nigerian for the Cameroonian cause he's...

    Doesn’t sound like much counter going on here: “There is no news of talks or agreements between the parties.”

    Absolutely agree.
    The headline counter should read... 'The club is working on a deal < not with, but > for Sean Johnson'.

    The guy is following Fede and Lorenzo… because he is joining them in the MLS multimillionaire club!

    If this is accurate… big if…. who would have guessed that the price for an out of favour Bundesliga LB with an injury history, would be 8M euros?

    ^^ Wow!?

    BTW, by my recollection at least 4 'backs- LB's/RB's have joined MLS this window.
    Arnaud Souquet, Franco Negri, Fredrik Bjorkan and Tim Leibold.
    The quality debate aside, two were connected to TFC.
    So there are 'backs' out there to find/be had.

    AAAAND all of a sudden I'm ok with not getting him on 2 million euro/yr

    KC spending some of the $175 million they set aside for Ronaldo? €2 million seems like a lot for that guy.

    That seems like an absolutely insane overpayment. Fingers crossed we can find another player of guy of this profile out there.

    Heck, would it really kill us to bring back Auro for depth? I’m sure he’s been humbled at this point..

    This would be a good signing. Not sure if it's TFC after him, but let's hope!

    He is apparently only making $135,000 (euros) per years. https://salarysport.com/football/dan...%A6tsforening/

    Part of me remembers that European media have issues distinguishing between wage for the life of the contract & wage per year.

    The more I think about it, the more I think the Leibold deal is 2M for 4 years and is being inaccurately reported. It just cannot be 2M a year.

    Leibold is coming off two years where he has hardly played, and makes $750K currently.

    An alternative, short and quickly comprised, shopping list.

    No CB's... too many available; someone else is welcome to concentrate them.

    From Bill Manning's favourite wholesaler... Transfermarkt - 'Out-Of-Contract'.

    Specifics/details of each not known, nor confirmed.

    More due diligence required; subject to a community review and consensus.

    GK
    Lorius Karius
    Nikita Haikin

    LB
    Gabriel Suazo
    Ron Matarrita
    Tyler Blackett
    Danny Rose

    D-MID
    Jhegson Mendez X: W/Sao Paulo!?

    TY for the advice.
    I am, I will.
    No one has this scoop yet.
    Great to have learned it here first.

    Funny we posted same point simultaneously

    Part of me also remembers that European media can’t keep MLS clubs straight, and could mess up the club too.

    Yeah, but SKC is pretty specific - like, the Ronaldo thing registered among MLS journos but outside of that...who knows who SKC is?

    FWIW, Veth agrees that it's SKC. He at least knows the names of the MLS teams. https://twitter.com/ManuelVeth/statu...25173888737293

    That is different. It's SKC then.
