Lindpere is coming off a superb 2011 season in which he scored seven goals and set up seven others. the latter a team high. The Estonian international reportedly wants to be dealt to a European team.
Marquez, the Mexican National Team captain, endured a dodgy Major League Soccer season with the Red Bulls. He underperformed on central defense and did not find himself until he was moved to central midfield. However, he did not end the season on a good note as he threw the ball at LA Galaxy and U.S. international midfielder Landon Donovan after a 1-0 home playoff loss.
Marquez was suspended for three games. He was sidelined for the second leg of the MLS Eastern Conference semifinal series vs. LA. That means Marquez will sit out the first two games this season.
