For our American, I really hope we get Mix instead of Jozy.
Not that it will happen, but I think it could be possible to get both.
Mix is out of contract at the end of 2014, which lines up perfectly for him to sign as a free transfer. As a free transfer, I think it's conceivable he could be got for sub DP wages. Because NYCFC will be #1 or #2 in the allocation order, it should be easy to sign him through the allocation order.
Meanwhile, Jozy is under contract at Sunderland. Since they just spend $13 million a year ago to get him, they won't let him go cheaply, even if he did have a poor season. I think MLS will be willing to bypass the allocation order for a team willing and able to spend big to sign Altidore, just as they did for Bradley and Dempsey.
However I don't think Jozy wants to give up on Europe yet. And I also think that if NYCFC get Villa, the team will have more pressing needs than getting another DP forward.
