    Jordan Morris is neither good nor a dual citizen. Just a couple of #funfacts for you.

    They are going to pay. Just directly to Gio Reyna.

    The travesty here is that we have a youth development system that doesn’t particularly serve the interests of players or clubs, and whose biggest winners are a random subset of our most naturally talented players who have the opportunity to escape it.

    This is a terrific post. I hope this becomes part of the larger USSF President conversation.

    Unless you involve the NCAA, there really isn't a workable solution here.

    He's not under contract. He has signed no professional contracts.

    Exactly. Then why should a team have to pay for him?

    Why would you feel better? We haven't heard any rumor that Gio is anywhere close to signing a homegrown deal.

    The obstacle here is MLS not abiding by solidarity payment protocol.

    The reason they choose to ignore it now is that practically none of the players who have come through MLS academies have actually started at MLS academies. If MLS accepts solidarity payments, they'll also have to pay them. Since all of the academy players are poached from non-MLS clubs, that would be a problem.

    If they can, they'll hold the line on this at least until a majority of clubs have fully operational academies that cover the entire age spectrum. At least that is what would appear to be the strategy. In the meantime, they'll lose out on a few kids starting out here. It's a calculated decision, not happenstance.

    When you look at MLS decisions through the prism of doing whatever they can do to depress wages and suppress cost growth, their decisions look very rational.

    How long would it take him to get a Portuguese passport? Is there any chance he plays next year on our senior team roster while going thru the process?

    And with a Portuguese passport, I assume he’s then eligible to play for Portugal instead of the USA. That would be a shit storm of epic proportions.

    i dont think he'd use it to play for portugal, even though he'd be eligible. the passport would just be used to train in europe under 18 or whatever the age is

    But he could. Though I couldn’t judge him if he did, because “whatever is best for Claudio’s son”, am I right?

    At that point, all bets would be off.

    He has represented the USA youth teams, I think, so he is cap tied with the exception of a possible one-time switch.

    He does not currently hold a Portugese passport, so it is possible that he is fully cap tied - you can't file a one-time switch unless you were already a citizen of the second country at the time you represented the first country at the youth level. Of course, it is possible he is already a Portugese citizen due to his grandmother's status and just hasn't gotten that recognized. A lot of this depends on how the legal status works.

    Of course, this is all academic as I can't imagine in a million years he would choose Portugal - unless his development falls off and that's his only option.

    He's been working on a passport for a while
    He's not playing for Portugal
