Rumor: Italian international Mario Balotelli has reportedly began contract talks with MLS side Philadelphia Union.

Rumor: Multiple reports saying Alfonso Espino, defender of Uruguay, could be joining the Revs on a free transfer in 2019. If he does join, he is most likely the replacement for Chris Tierney as they play similar positions. Reports also say there has been an Uruguayan agent that was at Gillette Stadium recently.
Rumor: According to multiple reports coming out of Japan and Spain, former Spain international David Villa is most likely moving to Japan to finish up his career. NYCFC announced that this was his last season with the club. David Villa joined NYCFC as their first ever player and captain 4 years ago and is the current top goal scorer for the team. He is also the goal scorer for the Spanish international team. After playing for Valencia, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Melbourne City, and NYCFC, could Japan be his final destination?
Report: Former LA Galaxy Captain, Left Back Ashley Cole, reportedly rejected a two-year contract extension with the club worth half his previous deal and is now receiving interest from English Championship side’s Aston Villa and Derby County. The 37-year-old had an impressive 10 assists in 31 appearances for the Galaxy in 2018. Should the former Chelsea and English National Team Star go back to England?!
Report: Liga MX side Chivas Guadalajara are reportedly targeting Defender Tony Alfaro. The 25-year-old, who recently became a free agent as his 2019 option with the Seattle Sounders was declined, was with the club from 2016-18 making 25 first team appearances as well as 37 second team appearances.
Rumor: Former Bayern Munich and Sunderland Centerback/ Defensive Midfielder Jan Kirchhoff reportedly joined Minnesota United on a two-week trial and has become a target for the club. The 28-year-old, who most recently played for the Bolton Wanderers, has also played for Mainz 05, Bayern Munich, Schalke 04 and Sunderland. Should Minnesota sign the Free Agent?!
Rumor: According to a source, if Right Back Ignazio Abate is unable to renew his contract with AC Milan, the LA Galaxy are a likely destination for the Italian International. The 32-year-old has been with Milan since 2009, making over 232 appearances with the club as well as 22 appearances with the Italian National Team. This is not the first time Abate has been linked with the Galaxy as move last summer was mulled. Should the Galaxy sign Abate?!
Rumor: Seattle Sounders has reportedly shown interest in Brazilian defensive midfielder Jádson. Jádson currently plays for Brazilian team Fluminense. He will most likely be more of a TAM player than a DP player and will most likely be competing with Svensson & Roldan. This could potentially be a positive signing since Seattle Sounders placed Osvaldo Alonso available for free agency.
