Are the Crew still looking to make a play for the soon to be out of contract Mix Diskerud? The plugged in Greg Seltzer reports that the Crew recently sent a scout to watch him play for Rosenborg.
The Crew tried to make him a capstone signing during the summer transfer window in August before talks broke down at the last minute, but now Diskerud wouldn't require a transfer fee. The team would still have to work a deal through MLS's seemingly byzantine player acquisition rules.
The Crew recently used the top allocation slot to bring in Kei Kamara on a free transfer for the 2015 season, but the order gets reshuffled at the end of the season. Diskerud may fall into the Designated Player allocation order. The team is reportedly 4th on that list.
It's been clear that Gregg Berhalter and staff have been keeping an eye on 2015 even as the team approached the playoffs. They've made three signings for next season in Kamara, Mohammed Saeid,and homegrown player Ben Swanson. It seems like the team still has eyes for Diskerud.
