Major League Soccer chiefs are struggling to keep hold of DeAndre Yedlin - reckoned to have been the lowest-paid player at the World Cup.
The lightning-quick Seattle Sounders full-back excelled as Jurgen Klinsmann's team reached the last 16 - but earns just £60,000 a year.
Yedlin, 20, was so low profile that when Clint Dempsey arrived as the club's new marquee signing, the newcomer took over his No.2 squad number. His teammates then took the plaque off his locker and placed it above the toilets as a prank!
Now, Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool are one of several European clubs trying to prise Yedlin away.
But MLS want the Sounders to reward him with a huge new deal. They are keen to keep one of their brightest young talents at home.
