TUKWILA, Wash. — Captain Michael Bradley had little to say Friday about a reported clause in his contract that will earn him another year at US$6.5 million if Toronto FC beats the Seattle Sounders in Sunday s MLS Cup final.
"I have not talked about my contract for 199 games and we re not going to start now," Bradley said with a slight smile Friday when asked about the issue before training.
Sunday s championship game will mark his 200th game in all competitions with Toronto.
Bradley s contract expires at the end of 2019. But The Athletic, in an MLS notebook item back in July, reported that he will earn another year at his current salary of $6.5 million (second-highest in the league) if Toronto wins the MLS Cup this season.
Bradley, 32, has declined to talk about his contract status all season. And Toronto s front office has followed his lead.
Coach Greg Vanney, however, seemed to confirm the report on Wednesday.
"I d like to think there s going to be a solution and I d like to think that the solution is us winning and then we know he s here," Vanney said when Bradley s future came up.
