10:49 AM ET 08.18 | In what amounts to a Major League Soccer fan's wet dream, the lower-level United Soccer Leagues has been put up for sale and two league sources have confirmed that MLS has inquired into purchasing it. It's long been debated, hypothesized and drooled over by those who follow the North American game: What would happen if MLS bought USL and created a promotion-relegation system similar to the one that exists in Europe? It's a question that will have to wait, as I've been told a group of investors have the inside track on buying the USL -- and that the deal will 'be coming to a conclusion very soon.'
