The Seattle Sounders are reportedly looking for $6.5 million dollars (€5 million) in a transfer fee for Deandre Yedlin.
In what has become an all out bidding war for the young superstar, the price continues to go up for his services. According to Mercato, the Sounders front office is floating a figure of $6.5 million to interested teams. Deandre Yedlin has received interest from numerous teams including AS Romana, Inter Milan, Olympique Lyonnais, Napoli, and several other unnamed teams.
For now, Yedlin is content to stay in Seattle and let his agents take care of the bidding wars. In Sunday’s edition of the Seattle Times Yedlin is trying to adjust to his new-found status of international superstar. As Yedlin returns to play for the Seattle Sounders, his performance has not dropped off. On Sunday, Yedlin was instrumental in many of the offensive buildups for the Seattle Sounders.
A transfer fee of $6.5 million would be the second largest in MLS history behind only Jozy Altidore’s $10 million. Initial offers have been as high as $4.1 million. The Sounders may take their time in working towards an international transfer, as they are not hurting for funds, and it would appear the price will only continue to rise. However, a lower figure could be agreed to if a team would be willing to loan him back to the Sounders for a slotted amount of time.
