- Aalborg BK, Marcus Tracy
It seems to be a topic every year that we have to go into. Guys that pass on MLS because the league doesn’t pony up enough cash to sign them properly. That looks to maybe be the case once again with Wake Forest striker Marcus Tracy who recently passed up the MLS Combine and SuperDraft to look at playing in Europe as an option.
It didn’t take long at all for a suitor to line up for Tracy, who easily would have been a top-three pick in next week’s SuperDraft in St. Louis.
The Danish daily newspaper Ekstra Bladet is reporting that Tracy is set to sign a contract with Aalborg BK.
He is expected to fly to Denmark in the next day or so to put the finishing touches on a three-year contract with the reigning Danish champions and UEFA Cup participants. Not a bad deal for a guy that just finished up Hermann trophy season.
Its just a shame to see a talented player pass on the league but you do have to give him props for being able to get attracted to a small club that is doing well in Europe. Getting to possible be able to play in UEFA Cup games isn’t a bad thing at all. We will have to see how this goes for Mr. Tracy.
I would imagine there will be two or three more players that pass on the league due to small contracts after next week’s draft.
