So the Red Bulls didn't land Ronaldo. But they could get Reinaldo.
Okay, that's not any consolation for losing out on Ronaldo. Still, Reinaldo Navia has been linked to the Red Bulls both in the American media and in the Mexican media.
A native of Chile, Navia has played for Tecos, Monterrey, America, San Luis, Morelia and Atlas in his seven years in Mexico. He's not in uniform for Atlas' game Saturday against Chivas, though he has scored three goals this season.
But he's scored in more ways than one. While with the Chilean national team, Navia and teammate Mark Gonzalez were sent home from Ireland after women were found in their hotel room earlier this year.
