It seems like the better part of a year now that we’ve seen rumors swirling around FC Dallas forward Maximiliano Urruti. Last winter it was with Barcelona SC, then it was a summer fiasco with San Lorenzo that then lead him to be fairly unhappy.
Now it looks like the talk is picking back up with this latest rumor.
#RUMOR Me cuentan que el @AmericadeCali esta interesado en el delantero argentino Maximiliano Urriti (26 años, @FCDallas). Urruti esta en la lista de jugadores protegidos (para el draft MLS), y ha expresado su deseo de salir del club (la liga). Jugaria en Colombia a prestamo. pic.twitter.com/TVvP4FHCx0— Mauricio Andres Luna (@M_A_Moon_) December 13, 2017
Colombian football side America de Cali is now looking at making a run at Urruti. The report above makes the claim that Urruti is still unhappy with his current standing with the FC Dallas.
Obviously like any rumor, take this one with a grain of salt and maybe a shot of tequila. My gut still tells me that we could see Urruti moved this winter as the team seems pretty keen on adding as many assets. Picking up a transfer that could net some solid allocation in return would go far given how much Targeted Allocation Money is now available.
What do you think? Will Urruti be moved this winter?
