According to a report from insider Sam Stejskal, both Felipe and Tim Parker could be on their way out of the respective clubs.

Is it possible that both players can be swapped in a straight two-team trade?

The Washington Post’s Steve Goff reported earlier that the New York Red Bulls and Vancouver Whitecaps FC are indeed in trade talks, before adding that it’s just a rumor at this point that the Red Bulls’ Felipe and Vancouver’s Parker are the players involved.

Parker, a promising 24-year-old center back, is reportedly looking for a raise heading into his fourth MLS season. And considering he grew up on Long Island and played collegiately at St. John’s, a New York reunion would certainly make sense.

It is possible, even, that another New York team is trying to swoop in to nab him?

Stay tuned.
