The name of Davie Selke, striker for FC Köln, stands out, capturing the attention of Major League Soccer (MLS). At 28 years old, the German player is contemplating a potential move to the United States, but there's a crucial detail: the possibility of leaving the German club for free if they are relegated from the Bundesliga.

Selke, who has already made his mark with 5 goals in 15 matches this season, has become a target not only for Bundesliga clubs but also in the North American soccer scene. The MLS, known for attracting talented players from various parts of the world, sees Selke as an opportunity to strengthen its ranks with an experienced and skillful striker.

However, Selke's decision is not just a matter of exploring new horizons and opportunities. The possibility of leaving FC Köln for free raises questions about the club's immediate future in the Bundesliga. A potential relegation could impact not only the team's status but also its financial stability and the morale of the fans.
