“Sources say,” “sources have told,” that sort of thing? It’s not always the most meaningful, but news today from both Spain and the U.S. has been pretty clear: Alfredo Ortuño is likely to move to second-division Spanish side Albacete.

It’s a move that we’ve been expecting — at least in some iteration — for the better part of two months, when it became clear that the Spaniard simply wasn’t going to play significant minutes — or, really, more than a few minutes — for Real Salt Lake.

Multiple reports emerged today, with Sam Stejskal leading the way in the U.S. with a report, and AS providing some reporting in Spain. Both sources are reporting that Ortuño is set for a move to Albacete.

The AS report, translated by Google for our reading pleasure, gives a sense of where the discussions might be.

“We want to prop up the front, and we have a principle of agreement with MLS, it will not be easy but we are optimistic and everything seems to indicate that Ortuño will play in Albacete “.

Another report, this time from a news outlet in Albacete, said that the move wouldn’t be a loan.
