TFC captain Michael Bradley signed onto a three-year TAM deal on Thursday.

Bradley joined the club in 2014 as a designated player, he signed a six-year deal worth $39 million USD. The club have now signed him on a targeted allocation money deal, which will see him earn around $1.5 million per season for the next three years.

“I feel so attached to the city of Toronto, the club, the team. I love it here and I am really proud of what we’ve been able to do over the past six years,” Bradley said during the press conference.

In Bradley’s six seasons with TFC, he has led the club to three Canadian Championships, three Eastern Conference Championships, one Supporters’ Shield and one MLS Cup. He was an integral part in the 2017 side that won the treble.

Bradley made his 200th appearance for the Reds in the 2019 MLS Cup in November, he joined Justin Morrow and Jonathan Osorio in the 200 club.

He has scored 13 goals and contributed 28 assists across all competitions since he was signed.

Bradley signing on TAM means he will no longer take up a designated player spot. Each MLS club is allowed to have up to three designated players, and two of three TFC’s slots are taken up by striker Jozy Altidore and midfielder Alejandro Pozuelo.

The organization has made it clear this offseason that they want to sign a striker as a designated player to help Altidore with goalscoring capabilities.

TFC begin their season on February 29 in California against the San Jose Earthquakes.
