More noise pointing Dejan Stankovic to MLS

Italian Sky Sports journalist Gianluca di Marzio is reporting that the agent of Dejan Stankovic met again with officials of Inter to discuss the termination of his contract.

It was reported by Sky Italia’s Tancredi Palmeri back in the beginning of June that Stankovic was possibly headed to Major League Soccer, and di Marzio confirmed that’s still a leading option.

As it was a month ago, Seattle Sounders and Toronto FC are the two interested parties from MLS, and although a switch to the U.A.E. is apparently also an option, Major League Soccer appears to have the upper hand.

Retirement is also an option, according to di Marzio.

With Stankovic at 34 years old, the Serbian played just three matches for Inter last season.  He’s spent 15-years in Serie A after a move from Serbia’s Red Star Belgrade. He went to Lazio before his transfer to Inter in the 2003/04 season.

    Man, this guy is really going to love the referees in MLS. I predict red card machine.

    He’s spent his entire 15-year career in Serie A?!?!?

    No, he bloody well hasn’t. He made 85 appearances for Crvena Zvezda, becoming the clubs youngest ever captain. How exactly do you gloss over four years spent with a European Cup winning club?!? Do you have such contempt for your readership that you can’t even be bothered to check Wikipedia to confirm that what you are printing is true?

      I don’t use Wikipedia, due to its tendencies to be incorrect via user error. I instead use a fantastic database called transfermarkt.co.uk. However, clearly they aren’t perfect either. Here is his player page. http://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/en/dejan-stankovic/leistungsdaten-detail/spieler_3428.html Missed his days at Red Star Belgrade completely. My mistake.

        Sorry about that Mr. Bonn, I went a bit over the top there. I’m not really sure why the red mist descended there. Thanks for taking the time to reply.
