Age: 32

Contract Expires: 2022

I might've buried the lead in this article. Orlando's captain potentially being on the move would be a seismic shakeup to the club and would reshape what this team is at its core.

Pereyra is getting older and his age really started to show down the stretch. He's not an overly prolific midfielder in terms of stats, but his technical prowess made him an excellent deeper-lying midfielder late in the season.

Orlando may be in the market for a new Designated Player to fill Pereyra's role and if the veteran Uruguayan doesn't want to resign on a lower contract, it could be the end of an era in Orlando.
