- Pat Noonan, Trades
A trade is in the works so says the Soccer Insider Steven Goff.
Columbus is said to be giving up on the Pat Noonan experiement by shipping him off to Colorado. No other details of the trade are clear but if it goes down expect some draft picks to come back Columbus’ way (my guess a conditional pick of some sorts).
Interesting trade since Columbus went out of their way with New England last year to get Noonan. For the Rapids it makes perfect sense to get another striker. With the likelyhood of Conor Casey being out most of the summer with the US national team this deal would definitely be a wise move for Gary Smith’s side.
My take on the Columbus side to unload a striker like Noonan means they will be unloading some cap space for this summer to sign some depth to their roster for the CONCACAF Champions League run that they will be in. Something tells me Noonan won’t be the only one leaving Columbus. Just a hunch.
Once more details come out I will let you know.
