The Equalizer has reported that Becky Sauerbrunn will be traded to Portland Thorns FC in return for allocation money and include at least one player going back to Utah. Utah can also get more allocation money for as long as Sauerbrunn remains an active player.
Sauerbrunn has been a part of Utah Royals FC since 2017, since FC Kansas City folded and Sauerbrunn was the first to commit to the new club, leading the way for players from the FCKC roster to commit to Utah as well.
RSL Soapbox can confirm the reports as well. It is an agreed deal, and all that makes it official is the official announcement from both clubs and approval from the league.
This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
