MLS broadcaster and former New England Revolution star Taylor Twellman says the decision was taken by Portland, who was expected to earn about $4 million from a sale.
Unfortunately, this is one of those transfer deals where neither league or club will want the egg on their face of a partner changing their mind on the deal.
The 26-year-old Nagbe has 10 caps for the USMNT, and has made 210 appearances for Portland since being drafted out of Akron. He has 28 goals and 21 assists.
