Could Brian McBride be set to make a return to Fulham? According to Sky Sports, the Chicago Fire striker could be ready to head back to Craven Cottage on loan, a move that would make him the third high-profile MLS player to go on a short loan to Europe this winter (Landon Donovan and David Beckham being the others).
Fulham is looking for reinforcements after selling Jimmy Bullard to Hull and McBride might be the ideal addition, having been a fan favorite at Fulham for years. The 36-year-old former U.S. national team standout left Fulham last summer before playing in the Olympics and joining the Fire.
Does a loan make sense for McBride? It certainly wouldn't for the Fire, which is into its pre-season now and the regular season less than two months away.
We should find out on Monday if McBride will actually make the move, or if there was ever any truth to the move. For now, what do you think about a McBride loan to Fulham? Like the idea? Hate it? Think it's just another fictitious transfer deadline story?
