The impending transfer of EPB proves that you can take the kid out of Kansas City but he’ll still find a way to run into someone he knows while abroad. Rumors are swirling that EPB is about to complete a transfer from Manchester City in the English Premier League to Venezia FC in Serie A.
Since leaving KC on a free, EPB has spent his time with Man City on a never ending series of loans. Most recently he spent two seasons with Austria Wien in the Austrian Bundasliga.
At Venezia, EPB would join fellow American Tanner Tessmann from Dallas FC and rumored signee and local legend Gianluca Busio. Venezia are about to start their first year in Serie A after a quick rise from the lower levels of the Italian football pyramid. Their American owners seem to be all in on the Yankees abroad experiment.
What do you think of this move? Whose name are you getting on the back of the sick new Venezia kits?
spoiler alert: mine will say Kansas City II on the back.
