Four goals in four games, plus the assist on Dempsey's goal. If he has a good Copa would have to assume the demand for him this summer could be huge. But MLS may want to keep him as he will be Marketing Gold.

He will be with Seattle for a couple seasons. He only signed a 3 year contract.

If you were MLS and the Sounders can you turn down $15 million next winter? Or $10 mil this season if he scores a couple of goals in Copa and has ten league goals by the middle of August?

I highly doubt he leaves after one season. In fact I think he should wait until after the WC. He will only be 23. His contract lines up perfectly with the WC. He may command a 20 to 30 million dollar transfer fee by then. My guess Seattle sign him for 1 year by 2017 so they can insure a transfer fee after the WC.

There is no reason for Jordan to leave Seattle before the WC.

That makes a ton of sense too. He may have more marketing value to MLS right now than taking the highest offer at the moment. If there has been one thing missing since Landon is that top notch American to market.

20-30 million for an MLS player? Are you serious?

Yep. Why not? I know you hate MLS, but fan personal opinion doesn't dictate what a team may be willing to pay for any player in the world in any league.

That also applies if you like the team and player. I really like Jordan as well but he is not a 20-30 million player. Now his stock really could grow but I would say you are looking at around 12 max if he has a good showing the next couple of years and at copa.

He scores three goals in Copa and follows that up with a solid showing at the WC. He could sell for that much? 23 and potential following in US why not 20 maybe low in a few years

You are basing that opinion off of current form. By the time the 2018/2019 season rolls around Morris will have played three seasons in MLS, participated in Copa America, WCQ, and a WC.

His transfer fee will be dictated by what he does and what teams are willing to pay for him. He may be a 20 to 30 million player. Note that I stated: "he may be." Not: "he will be." He may turn out to be A 15 million dollar player or 12 max like you say.

I completely agree. Of course this all has to change at some point but doesn't altidore have the highest transfer price after he scored like 30 goals at alkmar? Wasn't it like 11 million? In my opinion he will have to show the ability to be worth that much. I know some are done on potential but I just don't see it happening for an American until some one breaks through as world class. The next thing I see potentially holding Morris back is will he actually be willing to leave?

The only player that could get a 20M plus transfer fee in MLS is Fabian Castillo he is a player that could be an impact anywhere in the world. And at a young age.

Yeah, Altidore got 10M transfer, right? So, 20M in 2 years for a Morris who has improved from today isn't a completely retarded idea.

There is virtually no way a European team is going to spend 20-30 million on a 23-24 year old MLS player. It's madness. The record transfer for an MLS player was Altidore's 10 million from NJRB and he was an 18 year old prodigy with a scary physique. The best MLS product of all time, Clint Dempsey, was never worth anywhere near 20 million. I don't know where you get the idea that I "hate" MLS but clearly I'm more objective here because there's no way our transfer record is getting tripled for a 23-24 year old. You might think that Morris is worth that, but fairly or unfairly, no European team is going to risk spending 20-30 million for an MLS player. We've had successes and failures going abroad, but we've never produced a player that was worth 20-30 million, so there is no way a European team will risk that kind of money.

I'm not taking sides, just trying to work this out arithmetically.

How much do you think giovinco is worth, he's the best player right? in the MLS

if a European team were to evaluate him, how much would they splash?

Then factor in thle age difference, and room for potential, and like you said international callups, although truth be told, formica has gotten intl callups of late right? So he might shine there too.

Whatever that figure amounts to giovinco, you would have to adjust accordingly for Morris and Morris's game woul dhave to supersede his by that difference right? Or am I totally off base here.
