DC United decided to pay Martín Rodríguez’s termination clause and has already started contacts with Altay to stay with Gustavo Quinteros’ longing, according to what they say from Turkey.
Martín Rodríguez is one of the long-awaited names of Gustavo Quinteros for the second albo semester. The Cacique strategist wants to strengthen himself with a winger and has been asking for the name of Tin for a long time, who left the Monumental Stadium in the middle of last season.
Rodríguez himself announced that his return to Colo Colo was difficult. For his part, the Cacique made a formal offer for the former albo and were willing to pay for his exit clause, although they knew that an MLS club was interested in keeping Rodríguez with an unattainable offer.
Now, reports from Turkey indicate that the Chilean is close to reaching the United States. As reported by sports journalist Yağız Sabuncuoğlu, DC United, cast of the MLS Eastern Conference, has already opted for the arrival of Tin.
“The MLS team DC United has decided to pay Martin Rodriguez de Altay’s release clause. He has contacted both the club and the player,” Sabuncuoğlu wrote on Twitter.
“There was a clause in Rodriguez’s contract: ‘in case of relegation, he will be released for $300,000,'” he elaborated. The Altay lost the category last season, which motivated the Chilean to leave, and the Americans want to pay.
Until now, Colo Colo has not secured any name for the second semester and will be left without his greatest desire if Tin’s transfer to United States soccer is confirmed. From the Cacique they had faith in staying with the player, but they knew that the MLS offer was quite powerful.
