Report: Sol nearing agreement with Marta

The Los Angeles Sol of the new Women's Professional Soccer League are reportedly closing in on the signing of Brazilian star Marta. According to the Expressen, a daily newspaper in Stockholm, Marta turned down a new contract offer from her Swedish club team Umea IK and is on the verge of agreeing a three-year $1.5 million deal with the Sol.

In a telephone interview with the New York Times, the Sol's general manager Charlie Naimo confirmed the club were in talks with Marta. "We're in a great place with it [Marta's contract], but I don't want to say anything without having a signed document."

The 22-year-old Marta, who can play either as a striker or midfielder, has been capped 45 times for the Brazilian women's national team and is widely regarded as the best female player in the world.
