Maurice Edu has spent just two seasons in MLS, but that may be enough time for him to earn a big-money move to Europe.
According to the Washington Post, Edu is on the verge of a $5 million move to Scottish power Glasgow Rangers. Edu has been drawing the eye of European scouts for some time, and even drew some interest from English club Aston Villa last year, but the MLS rookie of the year appears poised to make the move just two seasons after being the No. 1 overall pick in the 2007 MLS Draft.
Edu would join fellow U.S. national team midfielder DaMarcus Beasley at Rangers, which is still reeling from its shock exit from the UEFA Champions League.
What do you think of Edu making a move to Rangers? Would he be better off waiting for an EPL team to come calling? Is the Scottish Premier League the ideal place for Edu’s career to take the next step? Would this move end Toronto FC’s hopes of a playoff run?
