Are you guys reading this somewhere, that he's demanding too much money? Or are you making assumptions based off his twitter feed and the way he looks?

I think lots are speculating due to several factors.
1) He's a free transfer (Euro clubs usually jump all over free transfers)
2) Hes young (Another Plus)
3) He's had some success in a European league.

If its not money you'd think teams would be lining up to bring him in as a squad player at least

Or he has multiple offers and is taking the decision seriously. Also, if his agent is worth half his paycheck, he's using each offer as leverage to get more money. Even players with crew cuts and levi's hold out for more money.

I'm actually glad he's taking his time to make the right move. Last thing we need is another American to jump at the first offer given to them.

All the assumptions in regards to Agudelo crack me up. As if we really know whats going on.

He should get every dime possible. However at some point you need to sign or you'll be left in the dust. Its extremely hard for a player to join a team without any type of preseason. No matter what team he chooses now already has a defined 1st team lineup thats gone through 5+ friendlies and have spent the last 6-8 weeks training together. He's going to be behind the 8 ball from the get go. He should have signed 2-3 weeks ago to get acclimated and gain his coaches favor. I wouldnt be surprised if he doesnt become a regular until december now.

Exactly.

AT this point he is going to have a hard time catching up with his teammates no matter what tem he goes too...

No doubt, but in this crazy game called soccer, talent usually prevails. He'll be behind the rest of the squad at first, but as long as he works hard he'll get there. My stance on this situation would be slightly different if it were a world cup year, but its not.
