For the first time in what must be ages, Real Salt Lake has been linked with a player: 23-year-old Paraguayan midfielder Oscar Leguizámon.
Interestingly, the move is purported to take place in the very short term, with a sale from his club, Olimpia, taking place between “today and tomorrow,” according to a Google-translated report from Paraguayan outlet ABC Color, citing a radio report.
However, that must come with some sort of caveat. The international transfer window is currently closed and will not open until July 10, having closed on May 1.
It’s hard to say what’s going on here. We’ll reach out to the club for further information, but as usual, don’t expect the club to comment publicly on the matter.
One would wonder about the import of the rumor, given the transfer window details, but also the state of the roster for RSL. There isn’t exactly a paucity of wide attacking players in the squad now.
