Dunne deal? The Daily Mail says so.
The New York Red Bulls are reportedly interested in taking on long time Manchester City and now Aston Villa defender Richard Dunne.
Dunne, 33, has been hampered with injuries over the past few seasons, but is considered a highly respectable defender in the Premiership. A recent bout with groin injuries has brought him to Philadelphia to tend to his ailments.
According to the report, Dunne would sign on with New York as a Designated Player for the outlandish price tag of $4 million per year. He is at the end of his contract and is expected to rejoin the Irish national team for their coming friendlies in March.
Though the Mail does make it sound like a deal is all but completed, keep in mind; he is at the end of his contract year and Major League Soccer has presented itself as a nice bargaining chip for veteran European players during transfer windows. After severing ties with the colossal failure that was Rafa Marquez, it would be highly unlikely that New York, Major League Soccer or the Red Bull brass in Austria would go back down a similar road with a similar commodity.
