DONE! Bradley to Toronto FC (UPDATES)


Taylor Twellman has dropped a bomb right here. A big bomb. Maybe bigger than Dempsey coming to MLS.

Could Michael Bradley be heading back to MLS at the age of 26?

More to come.

(Update 1): Twitter @ASRomaPress say that Roma is asking for something around 6-8 million euros while Toronto FC has offered 4. Negotiations are ongoing but talks are heating up. Link here.

(Update 2): reporting Toronto will spend $100 million dollars on both trasnsfer fees and salary on Defoe and Bradley. Link here.

(Update 3): Reliable David Amoyal (Twitter: @DavidAmoyal) has said that Bradley turned down a move to Chievo Verona last week and still has many European suitors despite this news.

(Update 4): Twitter: @DougMacESPN reports Bradley to Toronto is finalized. More information soon.

Bradley deal will be 5 or 6 years, around $6.5 million. Via Twitter: @JefferyCarlisle Link here.

(Update 5): Wow, Gab Marcotti on ESPNFC saying the transfer fee will be around $10 million.

(Update 6): MLS Transfers has been told via a league source that within the past few hours that Roma were looking to only loan Bradley but Toronto FO scoffed. Pressure from Bradley's agent, Ron Waxman helped the deal go through.

(Update 7): Hearing that the deal is not done just yet. Hold ups are due to Roma seeking other clubs to try to raise the transfer price. David Amoyal reporting German clubs Wolfsburg and Werder Bremen also interested. Link here.

(Update 8): Per Bradley's agency, Bradley to Toronto is complete! Link here.


  1. Would be fantastic for the league in terms of visibility, but would be a bad move for the successor to De Rossi at Roma.

  2. Good move for Bradley. A 600% increase in salary in any line of work is just plain common sense. As MLS supporters we can't have it both ways. We can't want the best Americans to play in MLS and in Europe. Great move for TFC and the league
