Derosario asking for $600k

Although progress continues to be made, TFC is still looking to find the right mix of allocation money and the real stuff to bring DeRo home.

As I reported yesterday, it was originally thought that De Rosario was looking for about a $75,000 raise to $400,000/year. However, new information is now surfacing that suggests that DeRo is looking for something similar to Guillermo Barros Schelotto‘s deal with Columbus in 2008.

DeRo would not be a DP player, but would be making DP money — likely about $600,000.

Toronto officials are still hopeful that something can be worked out prior to team officials heading down to the draft. However, there are still details to be worked out and it is possible that things could be pushed back to the end of January.

Since allocation money has an expiry date, TFC will need to work DeRo’s contract carefully — especially if, as expected, the plan is to bring in a DP as well.
