TRANSFER TRACKER: Report
According to Doug McIntyre from Yahoo Sports, the club is finalizing a three-year extension for goalkeeper Evan Bush. The 32-year-old, who led MLS with 132 saves this season, would be in line for a hefty raise, which McIntyre reports, would earn him more than $ 1 million a year.
Evan Bush and the Montreal Impact are finalizing a three year contact extension worth over $ 1 million USD, per a league source. That’s less than NYCFC GK Sean Johnson (4 years, $ 480k per) got but still a huge raise for the underrated Bush, who led MLS in saves this season.
