The Seattle Sounders currently have three Designated Players under contract – Álvaro Fernández, Fredy Montero and Mauro Rosales – but Germany is abuzz with the news that FC Kaiserslautern midfielder Christian Tiffert is on his way to the Pacific Northwest.
Rumors in recent weeks have linked Fernández with a move to Deportivo Cali in Colombia, and those rumblings are starting to make more sense as a DP slot would have to be cleared for Tiffert to be added to the Sounders roster.
That seems to be almost a certainty at this point, with agent Richard Motzkin confirming Tiffert's imminent arrival.

So who makes way for Tiffert? Will Fernández move on? Will Montero finally get a move to Europe? Is this the right move by Sigi Schmid?
