A pair of high profile veterans could be on the move to MLS, while a key injury in the Colorado Rapids midfield will force Pablo Mastroeni and co. to adapt.

  1. I’d be pissed if I was a current MLS. You can throw around 6/7/9 million in a player, but cannot pay a minimum of 250,000 -300,000 to all your starters?

    • if you were an MLS starter getting paid whatever, and you could do better, then you would, but if you couldn’t, like many MLS starters still at this piint, then you’d take your $250-300K and pretty flippin happy about it, about playing soccer for a living and getting paid more that what I’m guessing most here make…by a LONG shot

  2. However acquires Diego at 31 will benefit greatly from this underappreciated Brazilian player. The guy is in decline like all of MLS signings, but at 31 many players are still playing for their national team. It’s a shame Diego did not fit in Scolari’s or Dunga’s strategy. We would’ve seen more of him.
