UPDATE (3:18 p.m.) here’s our early story on the move
According to a source with knowledge of the situation, Freddie Ljungberg has been traded to the Chicago Fire. Further details will be announced shortly.
I will have more information as it becomes available, but certainly the countdown to his official departure started a while ago when it was confirmed he was exploring options to leave the team.
Interestingly enough, Chicago will come to Qwest Field on August 28th.
