According to Jeffrey Carlisle, Red Bulls have also sent $150,000 in Targeted Allocation Money to Orlando City SC in order to exchange Sacha Kljestan, a veteran of 52 senior international caps for the United States.
With the Orlando City SC Twittersphere currently split on whether this is a good deal for the Lions, there is no doubting that Sacha Kljestan is a direct replacement to help fill the creative void left by the retiring Kaká.
Whether Sacha Kljestan will be a Designated Player or not, this will be decided at a later date following the conclusion of Orlando City SC’s winter transfer business.
Still pending league approval. DP/TAM status will be determined later depending on what other players Orlando City acquires during offseason.
