English Premier League Teams Kicking Around the Idea of Going After FC Dallas's Brek Shea
Maybe, maybe not: You may recall that a little more than two years ago, when Brits first started sniffing around Shea, Jesuit's own Kenny Cooper decamped for Munich while also under contract to FC Dallas (though it was also set to expire at season's end, as opposed to Shea's long-term deal). And, as Minnick reminds: Premier League teams have plenty of money to throw around, and can offer their American counterparts anything or anyone in exchange for their stars, which means they could always make a deal too good to pass up.
Shea's agent Barry MacLean tells SkySports -- which reports that Manchester United and Chelsea are also snooping around -- that, yup, his guy's got a contract. But anything's possible: "I do know people are asking me about Brek as he is the premier talent in America. ... [The Premier League] is on his radar. ... I think England would be an interesting option for Brek, but we will wait and see what happens."
