Transfer Rumor: Elche prepared to make offer for Mauro Diaz

The silly season never stops.

While FC Dallas may be riding a two-game losing streak, it hasn't stopped the rumor mill from spinning with the club. The big targets for foreign clubs continue to be Fabian Castillo and Mauro Diaz and right now one club is prepared to offer FCD and MLS a pretty good sum for Diaz.

Again, it is a rumor at this point but this is one that has been building for a couple months right now. Elche CF has been scouting Diaz heavily for some time now and it isn't surprising that the Spanish side, that finished 13th this season in La Liga, is interested.

Now the money being talked about in this deal is likely enough for the Hunts and the league to be interested in doing at this point. It is in the same ballpark that the club got for Brek Shea a couple years ago when Stoke City came calling. I would imagine if the transfer number would hit $6 million, with a good sell on percentage like the tweet talks about, then FCD would take it.

What do you make of this news? If the price is right, do you think FCD should take it?
