With silly season firmly upon us, it's time to break out the ol' B.S. meter to sniff out how true a rumor is. The scale is simple - the more poop emojis, the more likely the rumor is a bunch of crap.
James McFadden - The ex-Scotland and current Motherwell striker trialed with the Union for two weeks last season, and has freely talked to the Scottish press about his desire to come to the Philadelphia Union after the New Year. He also ran the steps at the Art Museum, which is as good as signing a contract, no? 1 of 5
Colin Kazim-Richards - Rumors have surfaced lately linking the Turkish striker with the Union, however it all seemingly goes back to a lone unverified report. Still, Earnie Stewart is familiar with his body of work, and the Feyenoord striker would be a good addition to the Union. 2 of 5
Alejandro Bedoya - There was a lot of buzz surrounding Bedoya a few months ago, with a protracted contract fight with Ligue 1 side FC Nantes fuelling rumors that he was headed to the Union. Bedoya eventually signed with Nantes, however that hasn't slowed the rumors. He'd fit well in the Union's system, however it's not often players are moved so soon after signing a new contract. 3 of 5
