This rumor could mean the end for Anibal Chala.

The silly season continues on for FC Dallas here as we approach Christmas Day.

The latest rumor is a doozy out of Eastern Europe that suggests Oscar Pareja and company are lining up to get Bulgarian national team left back Anton Nedyalkov from CSKA Sofia.

The 24-year old defender has been “serious interest” from Dallas. According to the report, he could cost Dallas a decent transfer fee.

Nedyalkov has played in four matches for Bulgaria including his debut in a 4-3 win over Luxembourg in the 2018 World Cup Qualifiers.

This kind of move would likely signal a potential sale of Anibal Chala for the club too. I would find it hard to imagine the team spending a great deal of money on a foreign left back if they don’t have a plan in place to sell Chala at this point.

What do you make of this news? Would a guy like Nedyalkov interest you here in Dallas?
