Congress still has to approve the measure.

In order to take advantage of the government's favorable conditions, clubs have to commit...

Toronto FC have loaned designated player Gilberto to Vasco da Gama in Brazil, the MLS side announced on Friday.

With the additions of Jozy Altidore and Sebastian Giovinco this offseason, Toronto had four designated players -- one over the MLS limit -- and so needed to unload Gilberto, who signed before last season from Internacional.

The decision to move Gilberto was an easy one as the Brazilian stiker's $1.2 million salary was a fraction of of Toronto's other DPs. Altidore, Giovinco and Michael...
