What They're Saying: Merritt Paulson

"The fact that Almiron and Adams are killing it out of the gate , there’s going to be more eyes on MLS and more people looking at talent here. We got a core of young talent that we have to develop, we have to play, we have to build their asset value and, frankly, we’re going to need to be willing to sell some folks to be able to reinvest in our team.”

-- Portland Timbers owner Merritt Paulson on what he describes as "transformational times" for MLS with more players being sold to European teams, including Miguel Almiron to Newcastle United and Tyler Adams to RB Leipzig, and how it might affect the 2018 MLS Cup runners-up, who have invested heavily in players from abroad but haven't sold any for big money.
