Sam Stejskal checks in with the following information regarding the possibility of Blanco's return to the Fire.
An independent source with knowledge of the situation said that "it's more likely than not" that former Fire forward Cuauhtemoc Blanco will sign with the club this summer. The 37 year old Blanco, currently out of contract, announced on Tuesday that he intends to play for another year and a half. Blanco added that he will either make a return to MLS or sign with Mexican club Tigres UANL, Club America, or Veracruz.
When reached for comment prior to the Fire's match against Real Salt Lake on Thursday, Frank Klopas said that Blanco may be an option for the Fire. "There are alot of options (out) there and Blanco could be one of them", Klopas said on Thursday. "I don't know who you talk to that knows, he must know more than me, but I mean our options are always open with any player that can help our team."
The source also mentioned that Blanco is "apparently ok with being a 30 minute sub".
The transfer window officially opens on July 15.
