Reports have surfaced out of Mexico that Gaston Puerari has been transferred to Atlas. According to two spanish football media outlets, Atlas manager Ruben Omar Romano identified Puerari as a new reinforcement for this upcoming FMF season and the forward will report to the club this coming Sunday.
Puerari did draw some interest from teams in Mexico this winter before signing for Chicago. The reports have not yet been verified by the club but the report appears to have some validity. A move to clear an international roster spot was imminent if the Fire are to add another player during the July trasfer window as expected. Although the player's union listed Puerari's salary as only $50,000.00 for this season I suspect the actual number was considerably higher.
If the reports are true the move will clear salary cap/budget space as well.
UPDATE : Sources have verified the move. Announcement expected shortly.
UPDATE 2 : Here's the official release.
