Rumors have been circulating for the past week about winger Jonathan Menéndez coming to Real Salt Lake on a transfer from Argentina’s Club Atlético Independiente.

Per reporter Gastón Edul, the deal has been done and the left-winger will be joining the team in June of this year for a fee of $1.3m

Roughly translated:

Breaking: Jonathan Mendez is headed to MLS. Independiente has sold him to Real Salt Lake for 1.3m.

He stops being a player for Independiente in June.

This move would add a lot more depth to the wings and, it appears, would be a TAM deal. We’ll have to wait for the club to confirm the move and for the summer to see what happens with the roster and the starting XI.
