Bradley was in the starting XI but came off after 61 minutes in his return to Toronto FC following his time at the World Cup. Toronto went on to lose the match 2-1 to DC United.

Despite plenty of negative reactions to a few scattered plays, Bradley was a solid contributor for the US in Brazil and he will continue to be a vital cog of the US Mens National Team and Toronto FC.

Bradley underwent surgery this week to repair a "nerve issue" in his foot, reports. "It just means he has to get off it for a week," head coach Ryan Nelsen said. "He can play on it, and he's had it for a long time. You can play on it, but it's annoying. He's had a procedure to take care of that; it was always going to be done over these two weeks."

Toronto is off this week, which should allow Bradley enough time to recover from the procedure. Their next match comes May 3 against New England, although if Bradley is unable to return then, it could be May 7 against Vancouver.

Bradley's first goal of the season started off the festivities in Saturday's 2-0 win over Columbus.

Bradley has been an absolute monster for the Reds this season. His tenacity and leadership have been exactly what TFC desperately needed, and he could very well end up with eight to ten goals this year too.

Toronto FC of Major League Soccer officially announced the transfer of Bradley from AS Roma of Serie A on Monday.

Bradley returns to MLS, where he started his professional career when he was selected in the 2004 MLS SuperDraft by the MetroStars. He comes into the U.S. league as its highest paid player, and certainly one of the most visible thanks to his importance to the U.S. national team ahead of this summer's World Cup.

Bradley's transfer to Toronto FC of Major League Soccer is complete, according to his agent, Alberto Faccini, ESPN FC reports. Faccini said "Michael made this choice, and Toronto, in just two days, have closed the deal."

To say this move is shocking would be underplaying the news. While Bradley wasn't getting consistent playing time at Roma, he was still able to make appearances for the second place club in Serie A. He'll get a huge pay bump coming to MLS, although he'll get a break from playing, as the MLS season has not begun yet.

The American midfielder, who has made great strides over the past year and a half, may be headed to Toronto FC of Major League Soccer, Football Italia reports.

Bradley could see a big raise if he were to become a marquee player in Major League Soccer. However, Bradley has shown he is good enough to play in Serie A and it would benefit him as a player if he moved to another Serie A side.

The acquisition of Radja Nainggolan has moved Bradley down on Roma's depth chart of midfielders, Football Italia reports.

Bradley has greatly improved with Roma, learning much from Daniele De Rossi. It would unfortunate if he were to leave, but having more playing opportunities is key especially before the World Cup.

Bradley's goal in the 82nd minute of Sunday's match gave Roma a 1-0 victory over Udinese, extending their season-starting win streak to nine matches.

Bradley came on for Marco Borriello in the 78th minute and was able to slot home the winner just four minutes later. He has fallen out of favor in Rome, failing to start a match since the Serie A opener back on August 25 at Livorno. The goal Sunday won't likely change his spot in the lineup but he may be used as a substitute more often.
