Kekuta Manneh will be out of contract at the end of 2017, at the same time he is guaranteed to meet the FIFA rule on residency (5 after 18), even if his waiver doesn't come thru. He spoke a bit about his aspirations: http://www.rednationonline.ca/Articles2016/Mannehreflectsonthetradethatsenthimto.aspx The future for Kekuta Manneh going forward is as uncertain as his spot in the Crew SC lineup. Manneh is out of contract following the 2017 MLS season, and free to leave. That's the main reason why Vancouver sought out a trade partner for him. It's every football players dream to one day play in Europe. Manneh isn't committing to anything yet. "No, for right now, I'm leaving it alone," Manneh said. "I have a pretty good idea in my head what I want, but it's not necessarily what's going to happen. Sometimes things don't really work out the way you want them to. There's a lot of people involved in this decision-making. I do have a pretty good idea of what I want. I have to talk to my agent, family, it can change things. I definitely do want to go to Europe. That's the goal, it's always been my goal to have an opportunity to play in that environment, and see what it's all about."
