Sorry for the whiplash, but Alberto Faccini, one of Michael Bradley's Italian reps, just stated on Italian radio that the deal is now done. He says (in addition to PSV), former suitors Bologna and Hellas Verona tried to make late offers. He did not mention any of the English or German clubs recently linked in those countries, but he did say Toronto FC got this done lightning fast. According to him, the chase started only yesterday. What I do not yet know is if he has been removed from tonight's selection, or if the deal will be delayed for some reason, allowing him to play against Sampdoria - trying to find that out now, among other things.
Kooky. Get ready to line up for those Bradley shirts, TFC fans.
