BRIAN SCIARETTA - Monday, January 13, 2014
After a week of speculation, Michael Bradley has finally been unveiled as the cornerstone of Toronto FC's revamped team.

Bradley, 26, was shockingly acquired by MLS in a reported $12 million transfer from AS Roma and he will join English international Jermaine Defoe at Toronto as the league's two newest major signings.

Bradley began his career in MLS with the MetroStars but left for Holland to play for Heerenveen in 2006. From 2008-2011 he anchored the midfield at Borussia Monchengladbach with a brief loan to Aston Villa in the middle. After a year at Chievo Verona, he transferred to AS Roma in 2012.

In his career he has been capped 82 times by the United States national team while playing for the U-17, U-18, U-20, and U-23 teams in the past. His most memorable moment internationally came in his equalizing goal against Slovenia at the 2010 World Cup.

The stupidity of this move is and the fact that it's not talked about and seen by the main stream media is unbelieavable and shows how far soccer has to go. this is like kevin Durant going to play in Italy. It's great for MLS but let's be honest MLS is no where close to the Russian or second division of the top five countires in Europe league. People overrate the MLS unbelievably but there are very few mls players who have the technique first touch to succeed in Serie B much less serie A. Going to MLS he will only regress because the coaching, style of play can only get you too a certain point. It's like college player's go pro because they know college can only progress them so much. just like Dempsey or beckham or henry or any euro player who comes here they become lazy because the competition isn't the same, and their technique first touch are the first to suffer, then crossing, ability, shooting, etc. He and Dempsey can half ass it and be the best players in the league and not be challenged while they could've really been challenging themselves in Europe. As for the money he was making a couple million euros in the prime of his career in Europe I don't think he was ever gonna go bankrupt. his toughest decisions is do I get the 911 turbo or the gt3
