More top players coming to the MLS: (! or ?)

by Dan Bilicki In: Soccer

The New York Red Bulls have signed Manchester City cast-off and American national Claudio Reyna. This move should help but it won’t make up for the departure of phenom Freddy Adu as well as losing out on David Beckham to the Los Angeles Galaxy. The bigger news is that the Chicago Fire is courting all-world head-butter Zinedine Zidane. Whether they can land him or not is debatable as the French mid-fielder retired from soccer after the World Cup. If they can land Zizou, it would be another huge (past-his-peak) star coming over the league and another huge draw soccer fans in North America.
