Go west, young man?

The goalkeeper situation with the Philadelphia Union could be getting a bit clearer in the very near future, according to Steven Goff and Kevin Kinkead.

The Union have been trying to move MacMath for a while now to clear up the logjam at goal, however there seemed to be very little interest in dealing for him as MacMath's contract was reportedly up at the end of 2014. And a lone report in a French blog aside, the Union seem all-in on Algerian international Rais M'Bolhi being the club's number one goalkeeper in 2015.

It will be very interesting to see what - if anything - the Union get in return for a goalkeeper that has played more games in a Union kit than any other goalkeeper. The Union's biggest need is at striker, and while the Colorado Rapids have some decent options (Deshorn Brown would be a nice addition to the club), it remains to be seen if it's a loan or a trade.

Also remaining to be seen is what the Union will do without the club's only American goalkeeper when M'Bolhi and Jamaican international Andre Blake are called to play for their respective national teams.

We'll certainly keep you posted with details and updates as we get them.
