It seems like the golden goose won't be slaughtered after all.

Multiple sources are reporting that Major League Soccer and the MLS Player's Union have come to an agreement on a new Collective Bargaining Agreement.

The new CBA is reported to have a five year lifespan, and the major points are a $60,000 league minimum salary (up from $36,500) and free agency for a player 28 years or older with 8 years in the league.
