From Dempsey to Reyna, find out the best US footballers of all-time.

Serie A club Roma has confirmed the transfer exit of United States midfielder Michael Bradley to Major League Soccer.

The 26-year-old Bradley, a star with the United States men's national team, is in his second season with Roma after joining from Chievo Verona in 2012. In an official press release, Roma agreed to part ways with the former Chievo Verona star for $10 million.

Bradley started just five of 19 league matches this season, when he was sidelined for a month by a sprained ankle. After an Italian Cup win over Sampdoria on Thursday, Roma manager Rudi Garcia said, ''Bradley wanted to go. We couldn't keep the player. He did very well with me in these months, but I understand he wants to play more.''

Bradley, the son of former United States coach Bob Bradley, started his career with MLS's MetroStars before moving to Europe, where he also had spells with Heerenveen, Borussia Moenchengladbach and Aston Villa.
