Michael Bradley appears to have played his last game for Borussia Moenchengladbach, with a transfer expected to be completed before the close of the current transfer window.
Bradley has been linked with a handful of clubs in recent weeks, and Moenchengladbach's signing of Michael Fink on Thursday set the wheels in motion for a winter transfer for the 23-year-old Americans.
Galatasaray has emerged on Friday morning as the favorite, with multiple reports from Germany suggesting Moenchengladbach has already accepted an offer from the Turkish club. Other clubs linked to Bradley include Sunderland, Palermo and Spartak Moscow.
Here is my Fox Soccer take on Bradley's unsettled club situation, a situation that could be cleared up as soon as this afternoon.
An announcement could come as soon as later today, and a move for Bradley will likely mean a return to regular playing time after his recent two-match stint on the bench for Moenchengladbach.
What's my take on the latest developments? I didn't see Bradley going to Turkey, but Galatasaray has been after Bradley since the summer, so it's safe to say he'll take on a major role upon his arrival. Galatasaray has struggled this season in Turkey, but is a traditional powerhouse that won't be afraid to spend money to return to European competition, which Bradley has missed out on since joining Moenchengladbach from Dutch side Heerenveen.
What do you think of Bradley potentially moving to Galatasaray? Still hoping he winds up in one of Europe's Big Four leagues? Like the idea of Bradley playing for a team that could play in Champions League and Europa League in coming years?
