Gaven, Schelotto, Hejduk's: Are the top five Crew stories of the day. Posts on twitter and articles from around the world that are Crew SC, Nordecke, or transfer related.
If you're new in Crew soccer fandom. Video example of what is a Gaven, Schelotto, Hejduk.
1. Flores is going somewhere in MLS, that's all we know Crew fans. That's all we knooooooooooow.
Getting word US's Junior Flores agreed to 3-year MLS deal. Leaving @BVB 2. Unclear if he'll arrive soon or summer. Club tbd. Crew top option— Steven Goff (@SoccerInsider) January 2, 2017
When it comes to MLS transfer news, everyone knows Goff is a good source.
For Columbus still not a done deal yet.
Three other teams have to say no for us to be the top option, which doesn't feel very top.
Allocation order, link here.
Yes. Atlanta at #1 could be saving their allocation for Guzan or someone.
Perhaps the same for Minnesota at #2.
Why wouldn't they roll the dice on a medium priced, US youth player who has spent time with BVB? Who Brendan Rodgers was even contemplating as well for Celtic in December?
Were fourth in the order currently. That could be good enough. But, that's even if were still interested.
New options open up, you sign some other players. A lot can change in a month.
Rumblings that US youth intl Junior Flores, 20, may go to @ColumbusCrewSC from @BVB II (No games in 4th div this season, 3 starts in '15-16)— Steven Goff (@SoccerInsider) December 12, 2016
Raitala, Williams, Mensah*maybe are three changes since December 12th for one.
Gamba may be four, perhaps in a similar position.
2. Union de Santa Fe apparently were offered $9,500,000 Argentinian pesos by a MLS club today for Lucas Gamba.
@juanibotta Eso le queda, son 600 dls por el 80%. Son másomenos 9.500.000 $— Union de Santa Fe (@LocosPorUnion) January 2, 2017
That's $600,000 US dollars... Thereabouts, masomenos.
The linked clubs were Seattle Sounders, Sporting KC, and us*.
That's a lot for us to spend on a starting striker, let alone someone who will battle Adam Jahn for a couple starts in 2017.
Yet, this sounds more like us.
As according to Santa Fe in regards to money, a previous offer was a bit less inspiring.
Or they meant the $600,000 offer for a transfer was low. Good luck, with the below statistics, for a center forward...La inversión por L. Gamba fue baja en tema de dinero, #Union posee el 80% del pase.— Union de Santa Fe (@LocosPorUnion) January 2, 2017
Ola has scored more goals for us last year (16) than Gamba has scored for Union de Santa Fe since 2014 (14).
But, he must play a role for them; perhaps setting up someone else. As Union de Santa Fe fans seem unpleased by the news.
No hay nada confirmado pero te gustaría que Lucas Gamba siga en #Union ? Deja tu mensaje 👇— Union de Santa Fe (@LocosPorUnion) January 2, 2017
81% percent said yes.
He does look capable here:
3. Former Columbus Crew star Robbie Rogers got engaged on the weekend. Congrats. Link here.
4. Massive Report going wild on the blackjack table on the Junior Flores story. Hope they're right.
Probably are since Steven Goff mentioned Crew and Flores twice.
He doesn't just say things.
Likely a done deal. But, who even knows about Mensah, only one that's done to me is Raitala.
5. What is the Crew's take on all of this?
Just 60 days until we're back at @MAPFREStadium to take on @ChicagoFire.— Columbus Crew SC (@ColumbusCrewSC) January 2, 2017
