Toronto FC captain Michael Bradley is expected to stay put in Canada.
According to Neil Davidson of the Canadian Press, Bradley is set to sign a new contract using Targeted Allocation Money (TAM). Bradley’s new deal would free up one of TFC’s three designated player slots.
Toronto FC indicated a “major announcement” was scheduled for Thursday at Noon ET.
The deal would reportedly be a pay-cut from Bradley’s current designated player contract worth $6.5 million he held until 2019. The 32-year-old hit the MLS free agency market on Nov. 25.
The U.S. men’s national team veteran spent the past six season with Toronto FC after arriving from AS Roma in Italy’s Serie A, leading them to a Supporter’s Shield and MLS Cup title in 2017, as well as three Canadian Championship titles, a berth in the Concacaf Champions League final and two other MLS Cup appearances.
