The Daily Dirt, December 12: #NagLanta

Rumors, rumors and more rumors

MLS: New York Red Bulls at Portland Timbers Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports

The Five Stripes don’t stop.

Yesterday afternoon numerous rumors swirled around the team that has Portland Timbers Darlington Nagbe coming to Atlanta. This comes after Nagbe and the Timbers reportedly couldn’t agree to a pay raise of about $550k to $1 million. #NagLanta was first reported by Kristian Dyer on twitter (@KristianRDyer).

What this means for players like Barco and Almiron is still really unknown at this point but it could mean a number of things. Did the deal for Barco fall through or are they waiting until the Summer window? Would the team have the money to keep everyone and bring in Barco after the Nagbe trade?

Your guess is as good as mine.
