Reyna to Red Bulls?

According to Grant Wahl at CNN/SI.com, Claudio Reyna is in negotiations with MLS to return to the USA and play for Red Bull New York. It was announced a couple of months ago that Renya and his wife had purchased a $1 Million dollar condo in Manhattan (if I am not wrong), so it has always been a brewing rumor.

'Claudio Reyna might well be on the way back to his native New Jersey to sign with the New York Red Bulls. Captain America (now retired from international play) is in the final guaranteed year of his contract with Manchester City and may fancy a reunion with Bulls boss Bruce Arena, his former coach with the U.S. and Univ. of Virginia. "There are ongoing discussions with the league," says Yorks of Proactive, which represents Reyna. "Claudio is very interested in coming to MLS at some point, and in particular to the Red Bulls."' - CNN/SI.com

If Claudio has a step left, and considering that he is always considered for the starting 11 at man City, he might; this sounds like a great thing for the Red Bulls. (Excuse me as I have to go puke for typing that last sentence). With Reyna playing the controlling/defensive midfield role, which allows Guevara the freedom to roam in the attacking midfield position just like Christian Gomez, the RBNY offense will be a lot more dynamic. Toss in Altidore and maybe, maybe Ronaldo and Red Bull New York will be a contender next season.

* Edit - Eric posted a link in the comments section that confirms that Claudio did infact purchase a $1.4 Million dollar pad in Manhattan.

* Edit II - I have since fixed the spelling of Reyna. I need an editor.

I think Eric was also trying to be subtle about the fact that you misspelled Claudio's last name a few times...

Oh well, he plays for Man City and maybe for RBNY, so I really don't care how to spell his name.

Then again, I do need an editor.
