Ortiz, who recently left Televisa Deportes after nearly a decade as a television analyst there, claims that Los Rayados have identified the Toronto FC captain as a suitable reinforcement for the base of their midfield, and that “negotiations are on the right track” for a move.

TFC president Bill Manning subsequently poured some cold water on the prospects of Bradley moving south, however, in a conversation with Toronto reporters:
