Greg Seltzer continues to earn his reputation as one of the best reporters involved with American soccer. He's got the latest update on what I think we can officially start calling the Andy Najar Transfer Saga:
I have now confirmed that Anderlecht did make an offer for Andy Najar, which was rejected by D.C. United. The Mauves could come back with another. I cannot, however, confirm the reported amount of the initial offer.
Also murky is what exactly this means. Was the rumored (and as of yet unconfirmed) $8 million offer the one that was rejected? (Let's assume no.) Is the $8 million offer (assuming it's legit) a second offer, responding to whatever offer we now know was rejected? It's tough - if not impossible - to say.
What we do know: Anderlecht wants our Andy, and they've put their money where their mouth is. Stay tuned, people - this ain't over yet.
