Jozy Altidore: Latest Updates on Sunderland Striker’s Possible MLS Return

Updates from Thursday, Jan. 8

McIntyre claims that Altidore is seeking an annual salary of around $5 million to $6 million. However, the pressing issue is the transfer fee, which definitely won't be cheap.

Toronto FC head coach Greg Vanney revealed that the club will try to sign the American international, per Kurtis Larson of the Toronto Sun.
