As we wait for official word on the imminent signing of a designated player, the rumors surrounding Ignacio Piatti's signing with the Montreal Impact have picked up steam. Not confirmed by the club, Joey Saputo did hint that a signing was happening soon enough and it would probably be "a player that was talked about in the media".
Since then, TVA Sports confirmed that Piatti was in town recently to meet the club and try to finalize a deal.
San Lorenzo, Piatti's club current club, is preparing its preseason and the Copa Libertadores semi-final against Bolivian club Club Bolívar. The offensive midfielder is currently not on the preseason squad that is currently gearing up its preparations at Sofitel la Reserva Cardales, just outside of Buenos Aires.
