The Red Bulls may be prepared to open the vault to get their next big signing.

According to TYC Sports, the Red Bulls have extended a $7 million offer to Huracan of the Argentina Primera Division for midfielder Alejandro Romero Gamarra.

A bid in that range would shatter the previous transfer record of $2.2 million that the team paid for Gonzalo Veron in 2015.

Earlier this month it seemed that Sacha Kljestan was destined to return to Southern California as a member of LAFC, but apparently the news that Kljestan was on the market has ignited a bidding war for the Red Bulls captain.

Metro’s Kris Dyer reported on Thursday that Minnesota United have emerged as the new suitors for Kljestan’s services. Dyer’s source claimed that the Loons had put “together a sizeable deal” for the Red Bulls captain.

Former RBNY academy grad and senior team forward Amando Moreno has been plying his trade in Mexico since leaving the team in 2014. However, the NJ native and former US youth international could be on his way home in the near future.

Kris Dyer reported in the Metro that the Red Bulls are interested in extending a contract offer to the 22-year-old forward. Per the source, it would be a free transfer.

Moreno was a member of the 2013 Supporters’ Shield team and was called up to the USMNT camp in 2016.

In the same piece from the Metro, Dyer reported that the Red Bulls are looking to sign Wake Forest defender Kevin Politz and NYRBII midfielder Ben Mines to Homegrown contracts. Per the source, Politz would split time between MLS and the USL side.
