    If he fought it in court, it would probably be unenforceable.

    Contracts are funny like that. So long as both sides are fine with the arrangement, you can do almost anything with them - whether the terms of a contract are actually legal or not isn't that important until someone gets upset.

    Updated to include.

    DC United exercised options for forward Ted Ku-DiPietro, midfielder Russell Canouse and defender Ruan. Besides Najar, it declined options on defenders Brendan Hines-Ike (41 starts in three seasons), Eric Davis, Gaoussou Samaké and Jacob Greene, midfielder Yamil Asad and forwards Nigel Robertha, Erik Hurtado and José Fajardo.

    Center back Derrick Williams’s contract expired, and he is not expected to return. Center back Donovan Pines is a free agent who the club has not ruled out trying to re-sign. According to his agent, Pines will explore opportunities throughout MLS and overseas.

    Playmaker Gabriel Pirani’s loan from Brazilian club Santos is expiring, but a team spokesman said “the club’s intentions are to bring Pirani back in 2024.”

    Thx,

    Philly should sign Hurtado as a depth option at striker....... he fits their style of play perfectly.

    How? By not scoring? He’s three goals in the last three seasons. All in 2022.

    A goal every eight games over his career. And 5 for a season twice.

    No bueno.

    Thx,

    Jay!

    He presses, is generally a pain in the ass for defenders to deal with, and causes chaos in the box. A poor man's Corey Burke.

    I also said as depth, not a starter........ He's no longer your teams trash. He may be another teams treasure or fools good....

    You are right. Bueno hasn't ever scored in league play or the play-offs. Had a few in Leagues Cup though I think. However, he is also a d-mid so I don't think the Union signed him as a goal scorer.....

    As long as the Union don't pick up Mender Garcia, who the Loons just released, I'd be fine. Oh, and so much for the Matthew Hoppe redemption tour taking off in San Jose as they declined his purchase option.

    No moves and no decent rumors for the Chicago Fire (other than a rumor of buying the "Mighty" Tom Barlow from NYRB).

    Yeah, the Fire still suck at everything related to soccer.

    Seattle has announced their initial roster moves:

    There have been rumors that the Sounders have reached a deal with Frei and even tho Raul Ruidiaz has another year on his contract, there is speculation that he will not be with the team on opening day.

    InterMiami has signed Luis Suarez to a 1 year TAM deal. I don't understand how he passed the physical as, by his own admission, the dude can barely walk and requires a concoction of pain medication in order to play...

    Since Frei was included in the “out of contract” in yesterday’s announcement, I’ll link the Sounders announcement that he has signed a contract extension.

    Freddy will only be 36 in 2026, younger than Modric in Qatar.

    Steffen? That’s the player equity of signing Armas as coach. Oh wait…
