I was just passed this link from a reader which actually confirmed an email I got over the weekend regarding a possible trade by Toronto FC. Soccer America is reporting that Toronto FC is wanting to possibly trade up in this week’s SuperDraft to get Canadian international and this year’s Hermann trophy winner Teal Bunbury.

The big catch for TFC is the lack of picks to offer a club high in the draft and the lack of tradable parts on their roster.

Now there are a couple clubs high in the draft that TFC could potentially make an offer for here though. One is FC Dallas who has two picks in the first round, the other is San Jose who sits at the number three spot in the draft. I put the Quakes on here because of their history in the draft. For some reason they are one club that really does not take the draft serious.

What could TFC offer besides allocation money and future draft picks? Possibly Chad Barrett or Carl Robinson for one. Will anything happen though? Doubtful, I just think Mo Johnston will have more trouble this year dealing picks.


As for another deal on the table according to Soccer America. New England has declined an option on Chris Albright. Apparently now they are possibly planning on sending him to Philadelphia, his hometown. Albright was hurt most of last year and the Revs already found a quality replacement in Kevin Alston. I wouldn’t be shocked to see this move take place before Thursday.
