I ran across this article today which hinted that Pedro Mendes might be in discussions to join an MLS side. Mendes is 33 and struggled with some injuries this past season with Guimaraes. He could certainly help a number of MLS teams, a player who can control the midfield and attack. Lets just assume the Revs were interested in him (the article states there are a number of teams in MLS who might be interested but does not name any). Would he be a good signing? It depends on the price as Simms has proved he is a starter and you have Joseph to partner with him. If Mendes were to join you'd have to bench one of them which would be very difficult to justify. You'd probably have an expensive back up and would probably be better off spending money elsewhere. You have also have McCarthy who can fill in if Simms were to get injured. I'd love to see Mendes come over but at this time I'm not sure he would be the best option for the Revs.
I do recall that during the offseason Montreal was in Portugal scouting for players. Perhaps they are one of the teams that are interested. I hope he makes the switch over to MLS.
