Only one day removed from the 2017 campaign, and transfer rumors are already beginning to swirl in Salt Lake.
According to post on MLSSoccer.com, Kristian Dyer reported during an MSG broadcast that Real Salt Lake is once again pursuing 29-year-old Chilean international midfielder Cristobal Jorquera.
You may recognize the name. That’s because rumors were circulating for a hot minute about a move from the Turkish league to RSL during this year’s summer transfer window. Obviously that never happened, but according to Dyer, RSL still remains interested in Jorquera and will look to sign him in the upcoming winter transfer window.
Dyer also mentioned the reported interest in a tweet earlier today.
Ben Arfa to MLS? #RSL still on Jorquera. Friedel, Namazi, Savarese, Ralston on NE coach list. #RBNY Felip on #USMNT? https://t.co/4BUln04S5W— Kristian Dyer (@KristianRDyer) October 23, 2017
Jorquera currently plays for Bursaspor in Turkey’s Süper Lig, and has played for other top teams such as Genoa and Parma in Italy. He has also made four appearances with the Chilean national team.
We’ll keep an eye on this rumor and provide updates as more details become available.
