The Philadelphia Union tweeted they plan on making a major announcement tomorrow at noon.

Following a couple weeks of links, PPL Park sightings, and overseas reports of the impending signing of Algerian goalkeeper Rais M'Bolhi signing with Philadelphia, the Union today announced they will make a major announcement tomorrow (Wednesday, July 30).

They have given no further details, but seeing as M'Bolhi to the best of my knowledge has not been linked elsewhere in the past few days, it is fair to speculate M'Bolhi will probably have at least some involvement with tomorrow's festivities. Also, there is this from Sofiane Benzaza, Manager of SB Nation's Montreal Impact blog Mount Royal Soccer.

What this means for Zac MacMath and Andre Blake is currently uncertain, but given the depth the Union already have at goalkeeper, it seems more and more likely a trade of one could be in the works.

Perhaps tomorrow's announcement is sponsorship related or something overhyped and benign, but all signs seem to point to M'Bolhi having at least something to do with tomorrow's announcement.
