The trade is finally complete.
The deal that sends Chad Barrett to Toronto FC and paves the way for Brian McBride to go to the Chicago Fire has been finalized, TFC announced this afternoon. Toronto FC is announce the deal as Barrett, a 2009 first-round draft pick and future considerations for the top allocation slot, which Chicago will use to sign McBride.
The future considerations center around Toronto’s ability to re-sign Barrett at the end of the season. TFC will attempt to sign Barrett to a new deal, but if it can’t, and Barrett leaves, Toronto will receive more compensation, potentially in the form of an allocation.
Barrett is expected to be in uniform for Toronto’s match against FC Dallas at BMO Field on Sunday.
