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.
The story is getting support from reporters covering the Chicago and RBNY beats.
The Dax McCarty trade won't be announced officially today, but sounds like it is happening. #cf97— Danny Santaromita (@TheDanSanto) January 16, 2017
