Lorenzo Insigne's journey in Major League Soccer has been a rollercoaster ride, leaving fans and analysts alike pondering what lies ahead for the Italian forward in his third year at TorontoFC.

Speculation has been rife since December, with Insigne expressing his desire to leave the MLS and return to Italy. Despite initial murmurs of interest from Serie A clubs such as Roma and Lazio, concrete offers have yet to materialize.

The strained relationship between Insigne and Toronto FC came to a head during the season finale, with a viral video capturing the player's disagreement with the team's fans. Once hailed as 'Il Capitano' with dreams of lifting the MLS trophy, Insigne now finds himself at odds with the same fanbase that once adored him.

Can the Italian forward redeem himself in the MLS?

Responses to the MLS tweet about Insigne's upcoming season varied, reflecting the mixed sentiments among fans. Some expressed hope for a turnaround, with comments like "This will be the one for him ❤️24," while others seemed disillusioned, stating, "Genuinely forgot he still played for Toronto," and "Non-stop trade rumors." The fans are far from pleased with Insigne's trajectory at Toronto FC.

Toronto's disappointing season, characterized by missed postseason opportunities and a string of defeats, has only intensified the scrutiny on Insigne, whose performance was hampered by injuries throughout the year.
