Barcelona defender/midfielder Rafael Marquez is believed to be extremely close to agreeing a deal with MLS outfit New York Red Bull.
Reports suggest the 31-year old Mexico national team captain will soon sign a four-year deal worth $2.8million a year.
Marquez’s arrival in the North American top flight will be a major coup with the Latin-American community likely to get right behind the player who has had a brilliantly successful career thus far.
It will also be a huge inclusion for the Red Bulls who only last week unveiled the signing of Marquez’s former Barcelona teammate and ex-Arsenal and France star Thierry Henry.
I don't know how to feel about this, I'm sad he'll leave Barca but he'll be in the US!
