With hindsight as clear as a bell, CSKA got their man for nothing more than a well-timed rumor.

To absolutely no one's surprise, Roland Alberg will not be coming back to the Philadelphia Union next season. That he's already signed with CSKA Sofia is a bit off, but it seems the Bulgarian side has had their eye on Alberg for quite some time now and with the season ending and his contract expiring, it was time to pull the trigger.
