Palermo Rumors Heat Back Up

February 13, 2009

The mysterious Nordecke Luchador claims that Martin Palermo is still in the sights of the Crew and an offer may be forthcoming. Given the shady finances of MLS, it is hard to tell how much money the Crew have for the aging forward coming off of major knee surgery. The Crew do have an ace in the pocket for these negotiations, Palermo’s good friend Schelotto would help him settle in the area.

I am wondering where he would line up for the Crew. The current formation focuses on a mobile target forward to lead the line. Palermo was a mobile and deadly striker in his prime and would be an outstanding acquisition if he still has anything left after injuries and age have taken their toll. While I was doubtful before, I remain interested to see how this plays out both off and then on the field.
