Michael Bradley has no intention of leaving Toronto FC to join his father at Los Angeles FC. Per Sporting News’ Mike DeCourcy:

“I’m not going anywhere,” Michael Bradley said Tuesday at a press conference in advance of Wednesday’s MLS All-Star Game against Real Madrid (8:30 p.m. ET; FS1, TSN, TVA). “I love Toronto. Toronto is my home. Toronto is my club.

“I’ve never been more committed to finish what I went there for, which was to win, to hold up trophies.”

As we wrote about last week, it may well be possible - and even realistic - for LAFC to make Toronto an offer so substantial that it would give them pause for thought even for a player as crucial as Bradley.

But if the player’s intentions remain as clear as this, we probably won’t get anywhere near that far down the line in the first place. It’s difficult to see Bob Bradley endorsing a bid his son would not welcome.

And that suits TFC just fine.
