Report: Five European teams with Ljungberg interest

Certainly the Swedish press is very interested in the Freddie Ljungberg situation, and you can probably guess why. Recently a report in Expressen states that five teams in Europe — including one in England and one in Italy — are interested in the 33-year-old midfielder according to Ljungberg’s new agent Phil Smith.

This of course comes through a Google translation, so I’m taking that for what it is. The story also mentions some interest in Major League Soccer, which keeps things intriguing on the domestic front.

I certainly thought this would be handled by now, and Ljungberg’s agent reportedly said it might still take a few more days. You have to think the Sounders are trying to expedite this process so everyone can move on.

The saga continues…
