With Adu In Hand, AS Monaco Still Seeking Bradley

Now that AS Monaco have secured the services of Freddy Adu for the season (with an option to buy) the French rumor mills claim that Monaco is still fter American Micahael Bradley. Reportedly the offer is 6.5 million Euros (just shy of $10 million) and Heerenveen is reportedly asking for 10 million Euros (about $15-16 million) for the midfielder.

In reality, I think a deal could be in the offing here. Reportedly, Premier League side Middlesbrouh and Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen have only offered in the 5-6 million euro range. Heerenveen have a good thing in Bradley, using him in more of an attacking midfield role and Bradley delivered, setting a record for goals by an American in the top Eurpopean leagues. Bradley, if he stays with the Dutch club will see European action. But if he moves to Monaco, he will also see a lot of first team action and the probability of pairing with Adu in the midfield would probably have U.S. Men's National Team coach Bob Bradley practically salivating.
