DeAndre Yedlin has many suitors, Roma deal reportedly not yet done

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Ives Galarcep is reporting that Yedlin is drawing interest from Spain, Italy and England.

Maybe we should hold off on buying those AS Romas shirts, after all. Although Roma is apparently one of the teams that has shown keen interest in acquiring DeAndre Yedlin's rights, Goal.com is now reporting they are just one of several clubs expected to put in bids.

Clubs in England, Spain, Italy and even France are all interested and a deal could be finalized as soon as this week, according to Ives Galarcep's sources. Aside from Roma, no other clubs were named.

Although the story suggests a decision could be made in the next few days, the Sounders have given absolutely no indication that Yedlin is poised to leave the team before Sunday's game against the Portland Timbers. While the story suggests MLS would be the entity that ultimately makes the decision, it's almost impossible to imagine the league making it unilaterally. Even if the Sounders aren't the driving force, Yedlin will need to agree to any move outside the league and is hardly inclined to accept a move that would leave the team he "loves" in a bad spot.

Regardless of where and when Yedlin moves, the Sounders would  stand to reap 75 percent of Yedlin's transfer fee due to his status as a Homegrown Player. About $650,000 of that could be turned into allocation money -- which the team can use to pay down the salary cap hit on new contracts -- and the rest of that money would have to reinvested into the team, such as helping to pay for a potential USL Pro side, funding the academy or paying for future transfers.
