MLS champions Real Salt Lake are hoping they can keep the majority of their playing roster together and will begin by trying to re-sign Robbie Findley and Kyle Beckerman. The duo are two of the club's more important players and both of their contracts expire at the end of next year so the Utah club are keen to secure them so they don't have to worry about any issues down the track.
RSL general manager Gareth Lagerwey said the club has the chance to keep the entire playing list together next season but understands it will not be an easy task.
"We have the opportunity to bring everybody back and that's pretty exciting," he said.
The only thing that worries the club is the fact there will be new rules put in place once the current collective bargaining agreement ends on January 31.
"It puts a lot of pressure on us to not spend a lot of money," Lagerwey said. "But we can't completely sit on hold. We have to make progress on these things. ... It definitely makes it interesting."
It is understood that Findley, who scored the equaliser in the final against the LA Galaxy, is open to a new contract but it is unsure which route captain Beckerman will take.
