According to Steven Goff's Soccer Insider:
*Columbus star Guillermo Barros Schelotto has agreed to a new contract with the Crew, the Insider has learned. Schelotto, 36, had considered returning to Argentina after the Crew sought to significantly lower his base salary, which was $650,000 last year. No word yet on the structure of the new pact.

I also received an email today from one of my sources saying:
"Yesterday went very well between Guillermo and McCullers. The Crew got there man for somewhere in the middle for a one year contract. There may even be a chance that Guillermo could come on as an assistant coach after retirement."

Guillermo coming on long term as a coach, as he improves at his English, would explain his reasoning for attempting to get a green card.
