Report: Michael Bradley Could be Headed to Toronto

MOST COMMENTED

USA international Michael Bradley’s future at AS Roma is once again the subject of speculation after the Giallorossi added former Cagliari midfielder Radja Nainggolan to their ranks on Wednesday. The latest is quite a bombshell: he could be headed back to MLS to play for Toronto FC. That was the tweet sent out by Taylor Twellman Wednesday afternoon and confirmed by ESPN colleague Alexi Lalas.

Toronto has send out notice of a "bloody big deal" for Monday, but that was expected to be for the signing of England international Jermaine Defoe from Tottenham.

If he stays at Roma, Bradley, who is already the fourth-choice player in a three-man midfield, could be looking at even more reduced playing time if Coach Rudi Garcia’s comments are anything to go by.

“What does Nainggolan offer us? We can talk about him because he's a Roma player now and I can say that we'll be a stronger team with Radja,” Garcia told reporters on Wednesday. “He's not just a signing for the second half of this season but for the future too -- we hope to be playing in Europe next year so having another quality option is a good thing? Where could Nainggolan play? He can play in all three midfield slots. He's an all-round player.”

As NBC Sports points out, there have been all kinds of rumors linking Bradley with moves away from Rome. In the last several days, the 25-year-old midfielder has been linked with Fulham, Chievo Verona, Hellas Verona and most recently, Tottenham. According to the report, Franco Baldini, Spurs’ current technical director who used to be at Roma, is said to be the man responsible for bringing Bradley to Rome in the first place, so a reunion might make sense.
