Sacha Kljestan - New York Red Bulls - Celebrates goal


Another team seems to have joined the race for New York Red Bulls midfielder Sacha Kljestan.

After initially reporting on Dec. 12 that LAFC were closing in on a deal with New York for the back-to-back MLS assist king, Metro’s Kristian Dyer reported on Thursday that Minnesota United are now interested in acquiring the 32-year-old US international.

Dyer reported that Minnesota “has pieced together a sizable deal” for Kljestan, who has 16 goals and 51 assists in 97 regular season matches since he joined New York ahead of the 2015 season.

Yet additional reporting indicates this could be a leverage play by Kljestan's current employers.
