Michael Bradley’s transfer from AS Roma to Toronto FC is edging closer, NBCSports.com reports. The USA international was initially named in Roma’s squad for Thursday’s Coppa Italia quarterfinal against Sampdoria, but he later pulled out. In a radio interview, Alberto Faccini, an Italian-based agent, said the 26-year-old American has agreed personal terms with Toronto and is just waiting for the teams to iron out the transfer fee.

“Things have worked out well,” Faccini told Radio Radio. “Michael made this choice and closed the deal with Toronto in just two days. There is a very important project there for him at Toronto, who have made an investment that is one of the most expensive in recent years.”

The American’s representative added: “For Michael this was a difficult step to take but the choice was dictated by some market movements. Without waiting for January 31, he chose to follow this path also to help the growth of American soccer. There were many offers for him, also in Serie A, from clubs like Verona and Bologna. But Michael chose to return in the States after 10 years in Europe. It was a tough decision, but one made with the heart. Roma wanted him to stay but it was his choice to move to Toronto.
