The New England Revolution have rejected Maccabi Haifa’s $1 million transfer offer for Lee Nguyen, according to Paul Tenorio of Four Four Two.

Maccabi Haifa play in the Israeli Premier League, where they’ve won the top prize on 12 occasions. The club has struggled recently, having failed to secure a top-two finish since the 2012-13 season.

Perhaps Maccabi Haifa were looking to change their luck by adding Nguyen, who has shown the ability to dominate a game. In 2014, the midfielder was an MVP candidate, having collected 18 goals and five assists. Although his numbers haven’t risen to the same level since, Nguyen has been a solid contributor to the Revolution. His current stat line for this season reads eight goals and nine assists in 21 appearances.

We don’t know much about the offer but I doubt the Revs gave it much consideration. For one, the 30-year-old Nguyen still has plenty to offer. Furthermore, a move to Israel probably wasn’t something Nguyen was interested in. That said, we could see a different outcome if a more appealing offer comes along.
