Report: Crew to acquire Nagbe from Atlanta

The Columbus Crew have agreed to acquire midfielder Darlington Nagbe from the Atlanta United, according to a report from The Athletic.

While terms of the deal were not disclosed, The Athletic's Paul Tenorio reported Wednesday that the expected trade would bring a "significant haul" of allocation money.

Nagbe has spent two seasons with Atlanta after being acquired in a trade with the Portland Timbers in December 2017. The 29-year-old collected two goals and four assists in 33 matches this season and has 29 goals and 37 assists in 270 career games with the Timbers (2011-17) and United (2018-19).

A move to Columbus would bring the Liberia-born Nagbe back to the Buckeye State, where he attended both high school and college.

By joining the Crew, he would also be reunited with coach Caleb Porter, his former coach at the University of Akron (2008-10) as well as with the Timbers (2013-17).

Reports: Former coach Kreis to interview for RSL jobs

Former Real Salt Lake star and head coach Jason Kreis will interview for the club's vacant head coach and general manager positions, according to multiple reports.

The Athletic was the first to report the news back on Oct. 24, but Salt Lake City's KSL Sports on Tuesday confirmed the interview will take place, citing an RSL spokesperson. KSL also noted that talks between Kreis and RSL were started by interim GM Elliot Fall in September, while Kreis was in town for a celebration commemorating the team's 2009 MLS Cup win.

Kreis was head coach of that team.

Kreis, 46, was the first player named to the RSL roster when he was acquired via trade from the Dallas Burn in November 2004, ahead of RSL's inaugural season in 2005. He scored the first goal in club history during RSL's second match against the LA Galaxy, and went on to become the first player in MLS history to score 100 career league goals.

Kreis, who made 58 appearances for RSL, announced his retirement from professional soccer on May 3, 2007, and was named head coach. Under Kreis, RSL won the 2009 MLS Cup, and made it to the MLS Cup final in 2013 and the CONCACAF Champions League final in 2011. He went 112-85-64 across 261 matches with RSL before becoming the first head in New York City FC history in December 2013. Kreis also served as coach of Orlando City SC from 2016-18.

Currently, Kreis is the senior academy director at Inter Miami CF, an expansion club set to begin play in MLS next season. He also manages the United States' U-23 team as it attempts to qualify for the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo.

The RSL coaching position has been vacant since August when former head coach Mike Petke was fired for his conduct toward officials after a loss earlier this summer.

Report: NYCFC head coach Torrent to step down

New York City FC head coach Dome Torrent is expected to step down from his position with one year remaining on his contract, ESPN reported Tuesday.

NYCFC led the Eastern Conference with 64 points and an 18-10-6 record but was eliminated from the MLS playoffs by Toronto FC in the conference semifinals. Toronto FC advanced to Sunday's MLS Cup final, where it will face the Seattle Sounders.

The report said Torrent is in the process of finalizing his decision with NYCFC officials and that moving to another MLS franchise is not out of the question. He also has options to coach in the Middle East.

Torrent spent more than a decade as an assistant coach for highly regarded European head coach Pep Guardiola, who is the head man at Manchester City.

Torrent took over at NYCFC during the 2018 season. The team finished third in the Eastern Conference last season with 56 points.

Altidore: 'Miracle' needed to play in MLS Cup Final

Toronto FC striker Jozy Altidore wasn't too optimistic when assessing his strained quadriceps.

"It's been a while. At this point, it'll take a little bit of a miracle to be out there on Sunday," Altidore said on Monday, referencing the upcoming MLS Cup Final in Seattle against the Sounders.

"But that's where I am. And I've just got to try to keep trying to get myself there."

Whether Altidore is being honest or providing a smoke screen is anyone's guess, however the 29-year-old hasn't played since exiting Toronto's 1-0 win over the Columbus Crew on Oct. 6 in the regular-season finale.

Altidore recorded 11 goals and seven assists in 22 regular-season games this season for Toronto FC, which is facing Seattle for the third time in the MLS Cup Final. Seattle won on penalty kicks in 2016 while Toronto FC posted a 2-0 victory the following year.
