Michael Bradley is keeping his cards close to his chest.
The Toronto FC captain was linked with a return to Serie A - namely with Bologna or AC Milan - a week ago, while the appointment of his father, Bob, to coach Swansea City could also present him with a potential route back into European football.
Bradley was noncommittal when asked about the rumours while with the U.S. men’s national team on Tuesday, but he didn’t exactly shut them down.
“November is obviously on everybody’s mind. And then there will be time as always at the end of the season to figure out to sit down and talk - what went well, what didn’t - and find the right way forward.”
That suggests, then, that there is at least a decision to be discussed and made.
We took an in-depth look at the chances of this season being Bradley’s last in Toronto on Friday. His $6.5 million guaranteed salary is the third-most lucrative in MLS, trailing only Kaka and Sebastian Giovinco.
