ASN Morning Read: Big Move Coming for Besler?

Sporting Kansas City CEO Robb Heineman said Thursday that the club has received "enormous interest" in Matt Besler from “different leagues all over the world." Besler’s agent, Eddie Rock was extremely candid and said that if something were to happen, it would happen “probably within the next 10 days." Rock says Besler is weighing three options: Sign an extension with Sporting KC, go the Premier League or go to the Bundesliga. He says they've received offers from teams in both leagues.
