Report: New York Red Bulls trade Dax McCarty to Chicago Fire


Derik Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

Days after they had to swat away the rumor they had lost their head coach to Salzburg and sporting director was never really explained why Ali Curtis was getting swept away, the New York Red Bulls have a new story to address.

FourFourTwo's Paul Tenorio, as well-sourced as any reporter on the MLS beat, is advising that RBNY has traded captain Dax McCarty to the Chicago Fire. For $400,000 in allocation money to be paid over two seasons.

McCarty just got married, deferring his honeymoon plans to attend US Men's National Team training camp. Helluva wedding present, RBNY.

Married AF

The story is getting support from reporters covering the Chicago and RBNY beats.

Looks like Dax McCarty is on his way to a new team.
