Day ‘D’ for Piatti in a Canada that believed to be from Espanyol

first_imgExpires this Thursday on permission granted by Espanyol to a Pablo Piatti who was looking for a destination far from Barcelona. Specifically, in the last two days Everything indicated that he was in Canada, to pass medical review and be announced as a new player of Toronto FC, of Major League Soccer (MLS), every time he had to terminate his contract with the parakeet club, five months after it ended. Interestingly, all this will happen with probability in Canada, a country where Espanyol was just three weeks ago. Specifically, based on a rumor that placed the parakeet club as a buyer of the Ottawa Fury, a football team that had ceased its activities after withdrawing the Concacaf permits, to refound it.Various North American media they pointed to Espanyol, and even cited Rastar Group, as the LaLiga club that was behind this acquisition, and which eventually turned out to be Atlético de Madrid. In fact, the resulting entity is called Atlético Ottawa and will start competing in April, but not in the MLS but in the Canada Premier League (CPL), so in no case would it be measured with Piatti. If this operation is confirmed, obviously the Espanyol will not be pocketed any amount as a transfer but will lighten the salary mass even more, which was already relieved last week with Esteban Granero, given that Piatti also came as one of the highest pieces of the template. A salary that could be faced by a Toronto FC that has three places for franchise players, and which has one left after taking over the services of Jozy Altidore (former Villarreal and Xerez) and the Spaniard Alejandro Pozuelo (Betis canterano who also passed through Rayo Vallecano).last_img
