As promised, here's the latest...
The chances of Zizou going to Chicago are now slim to none. He won't even consider an offer of less than $15 million per year. This comes from a source close to the folks who have been trying to facilitate a deal. Talks never progressed far enough to involve the Chicago front office and coaches.
New York has also been mentioned again as a possible suitor and, while there is interest from upper management (Red Bull), it is very unlikely to happen.
So there you have it. If anything else surfaces today, y'all will be the first to know. Zidane might end up in MLS at some point (maybe next year?), but from all indications, it ain't happening right now.
Having said that, I just might have a good story for you late tonight with significant U.S. soccer implications. Be sure to check the main sports page at www.washingtonpost.com before bedtime.
