womenforfootball.com- As Summer transfer market heats up day by day until season kick-off throughout Europe, one news particularly stood out; The goal hungry Uruguayan striker-known for his 2010 World Cup Golden Ball Award- is highly anticipated to close a deal with Toronto FC.
The rumor is more than good news for Toronto FC team and their fans at MLS.
Anyone who have had time and passion to watch European club games and also World Cup games, would consent that Diego Forlan is one of the most talented strikers in the world.
Although age-wise(currently at 34) he is entering the last phase of his playing career, his eyes for the net and his passion for winning is the kind of mentality that Toronto FC desperately need.
Amongst his glorious playing career, he has experience of playing at Argentina’s Independiente, EPL’s Manchester United where at some point his goal tally made him the club’s 3rd best-scoring striker, then he left for La Liga’s Villareal where he also recorded La Liga Award for highest goal record of the season, as well shared European Golden Boot Award with Theirry Henry back in 2005.
He then moved on to Atletico Madrid, where he again managed to win La Liga’s Award for highest goals, as well as European Golden Boot for the second time. However, he could not continue his stellar performance at Inter, when he moved to Serie-A and eventually led to Inter terminating his contract prior to end of contract.
Following his dismal few seasons at Inter, he left off to Brazil league to play for Internacional, where he once again returned to his prime by winning Championship with the team and scoring the highest goals of the league.
And at international scene, he is one of the backbone of Uruguay national team, in which in the last World Cup he was awarded as the best player of the Tournament.
So such caliber of striker is close to join Toronto FC, and based on Globe and Mail reporter’s exclusive, and as he reiterated on TSN Radio, the deal is almost done with ongoing negotiation on Financial terms. You can listen to the reporter’s comments here.
Stay tuned for more details, but seems like Toronto football fans are set to host a star soon.
