I read somewhere that Diego played in a few friendlies for Uruguay's u-20 team last cycle and just missed out on getting called for the world cup. If that's true that's pretty impressive since Uruguay had some pretty impressive forward talent on that team

I think Diego is definitely going to need another raise in the next couple years to make it worth his while to spurn Europe/SA. At this point in time he is guaranteed annual compensation to the tune of $127,196.00 but I would guess somewhere in the low to mid $200k's (think Zusi's current deal) will be needed to keep him content.

So as long as the quality of the league continues to grow and DF is financially secure, it seems quite conceivable that he could spend the next 5 years in MLS.

Lol, an elite national team in 5 years huh? ...I don't see it, but MAN I hope you are spot on. That will be about the time Ben Lederman and Josh Pynadath will be coming to the age where we will be able to get a much better idea of their potential impact to our youth and full national teams. I am excited about the young talent coming up but I have seen way too many hyped up American youths that turn int busts for me to be as excited as you. Like I said, hopefully your right.

The difference now is the US is producing 2 to 3 elite players for each position instead of just 3 to 5 elite players on a team. Hence why it hurt more when 1 to 2 elite prospects in the past crashed and burned.

Nagbe, Arriola, Zardes, Holmes, Fagundez, Gil, Lletget, Junior Flores, Rubio Rubin, Shea, Gatt, and potentially the Hoyas brothers will push the likes of Bedoya, Zusi, and Pontius out of the picture come 2018

The kid is only making 55 grand right now. Show him some DP money and I'll bet he hangs with MLS for a while.
