The Portland Timbers will announce a deal later today and their trade partner might be the Philadelphia Union.

Steven Goff, the man behind the Washington Post's Soccer Insider, said over Twitter that he heard that the Union were in play to be a part of the upcoming Timbers trade.

Portland's Owner, and President, Merrit Paulson tweeted earlier that the Timbers would "be announcing a pretty significant trade shortly. more on that later."

Mao Football, a Timbers news and analysis site, has speculated that Portland may send Jorge Perlaza away as part of any deal, given that the Colombian striker was held out of practice yesterday.

The two likely pieces that could be sent to Portland would be strikers Jack McInerney or Danny Mwanga.

McInerney has barely played this season and hasn't been a part of a gameday roster in some time. Mwanga, on the other hand, has disappointed thus far this season and happens to have played a year of college soccer at Oregon State.
