12/19/09: Guillermo To Likely Be Back For One More Year.

I have it on good word that Columbus Crew, General Manager Mark McCullers really wants Guillermo Barros Schelotto back for one more season. The low ball offer was a mixture of negotiation (since GBS's camp asked for much more) and because possibly some others at the top were not as sure of what GBS has left. Nevertheless, it seems very likely that Guillermo will be back for one more season with the Massive and then look to get into coaching with Boca Juniors. Guillermo and the Crew will meet in the middle on Guillermo's salary (around $400,000 to $425,000- some of that might be bought down with other money). Guillermo might see this now as more of a necessity for the club, since other players such as goalkeeper William Hesmer are due a major, salary increase. I expect we will all hear much more sometime early next week.
