Report: Rapids attempting to acquire Tim Howard

The Colorado Rapids are hoping that Tim Howard becomes the latest American to return to MLS.

According to ESPN FC, the Rapids are attempting to acquire the U.S. Men’s National Team goalkeeper after receiving the top allocation spot in MLS in a trade with the Chicago Fire during Thursday’s MLS Draft.

The 36-year-old netminder previously played in MLS for the MetroStars — now known as the New York Red Bulls — from 1998 to 2003 before moving to Manchester United.

The Rapids were also reportedly interested in signing U.S. midfielder Alejandro Bedoya, but a recent report said the Western Conference side were not going to ink a deal with him this winter. Meanwhile, Mexican international forward Alan Pulido, who currently plays for Greek club Olympiakos, has been linked with a move to the Rapids as well.

What do you think of this development? Think Howard will return to MLS and play for the Rapids?
