Things I Hear.....

*While negotiations have not gone well between Christian Gomez and D.C. United, I hear that at least one MLS club has expressed interest in trading for Gomez's rights. Gomez's contract expires at the end of the month, but under league guidelines, United would retain his MLS rights -- and have to be compensated (allocation money, draft picks?) by the other club. In this case, the trade would be contingent on Gomez signing a contract with his new team. Gomez's issue with United has been guaranteed years in a new contract. United has apparently offered one; Gomez wants at least two.

*New York is wrapping up its coaching search and, from what I'm told, is preparing to announce its choice this week. The assumption here -- and with everyone I've spoken to in MLS circles -- is that Juan Carlos Osorio is moving to the Meadowlands from Chicago. In which case, the Red Bulls would have to compensate the Fire. Again, I'm assuming Osorio is the guy.
