I was not at liberty to divulge the following info before, but now Mikkel Diskerud has basically gone and done it in his always-amusing BigSoccer thread, so let us have a little review session. First off, neither Celtic nor Tijuana are in the picture - no matter how many times the UK rags link the former.
Secondly, yes, he is in talks with MLS - in fact, he revealed he will talk to them again this week. New York City FC is widely thought to be in the mix (no pun intended), and at my last check this seemed correct. I also have an unconfirmed hunch another MLS club further west has poked a nose in.
Diskerud also let loose that there are two clubs in Greece after him. I know the identity of both, but may or may not name them in the MLSS report that will follow tonight. I will tell you now that both clubs are in fine position in the race for European places.
As for Rosenborg, they now seem more focused on a replacement search than on the possibility of getting the free agent back. Is there anyone else around? Actually, I think there is. But like the MLS suitor(s), I cannot yet confirm it.
By the way, Mix, just kidding with the title.
