The rumors just never stop swirling, and today, they’re back over Yura Movsisyan’s head: Twitter account MLS Transfers is reporting from a source that he’s headed on a free loan to SK Slavia Prague.
That’s a very interesting rumor, and it seems to have come out of the blue. Movsisyan had previously been linked to LA Galaxy, who are rumored to have balked at the salary demands of the Armenian striker.

As always, take any account that makes its trade in anonymously sourced rumors with a grain of salt.
Movsisyan recently suffered what Real Salt Lake has described as a hip injury, keeping him out of full training in the last week. Of course, with that news, plenty of rumors circulated about him being kept out of training while a transfer of some sort was underway — whether that’s true or not is difficult to say.
If it is true, Movsisyan’s high-profile signing could be one of the least successful for Real Salt Lake in recent years — up there with Juan Manuel Martinez, who was released after one-and-a-half seasons with the club so he could return to Argentina.
We’ll follow up on this one.
