General manager Adrian Hanauer said tonight that it would be difficult for the Sounders to sign a third designated player, joining Blaise Nkufo and Alvaro Fernandez, and replacing Freddie Ljungberg, who was traded to Chicago on Friday.)
"We would have to do some things to be able to fit a third DP in," Hanauer said. "We don’t have the cap space right now, and we don’t have the roster space right now. … We don’t want to challenge our ability of holding on to our top young players by being too top-heavy. But if we can and we find a good opportunity we’re certainly not going to be scared off by the prospect."
