Nana Attakora signs, Fabian Espindola and D.C. United are talking, and Michael Bradley is coming back to this continent. It is your morning Freedom Kicks!

Pull up a chair, pour yourself a cup of coffee or tea, and enjoy some soccer news from around the world.

D.C. United roster update & analysis: Steve Goff of the Washington Post goes through D.C. United's roster, while confirming that Nana Attakora has been signed to a contract and that the team is still locked in negotiations with Fabian Espindola.

Michael Bradley to Toronto FC could already be a done deal - Waking The Red: Did you hear that Michael Bradley is probably going to Toronto FC? If you are on Twitter and didn't, I am amazed since it was the only thing talked about all evening.

TFC To Sign Michael Bradley At The Expense of Matias Laba? - Waking The Red: However, TFC already has three designated players and so, barring any Calvinball moves by the league, would have to get rid of one of them. I know that our own Chest Rockwell is enamored with Matias Laba, their young designated player, so maybe D.C. United can use this to their advantage.

Bayern Munich's Karl-Heinz Rummenigge says FIFA, UEFA contemplating switch to summer calendar | MLSsoccer.com: Wouldn't it be hilarious if, after years of FIFA pushing MLS to adopt the European schedule, a winter World Cup forces everyone else to adopt the MLS schedule?

As always, this is your place for chatter on all things soccer related today!
