The Argentinean club, San Lorenzo, is in full preparation for the 2017 Copa Libertadores. Initial reports have been pointing to the fact that Ignacio Piatti would be leaving the Montreal Impact for San Lorenzo sooner than later.

Nick de Santis has travelled to Argentina for recruitment, and will be meeting with San Lorenzo, Piatti's former club. According to Olé, this may be a sign that Piatti will be returning to his homeland as soon as January 2017.

After the Impact playoff victory over the Red Bulls, Ignacio Piatti gave an interview with an Argentine radio station to talk about his spectacular season in MLS and what the future may hold for him.

For his part, Ignacio Piatti has been clear that he wants to remain in Montreal.

Last week, a report came out that another Argentinian club, Boca Juniors, tried to make an offer for Piatti mid-season, and the Impact told them it was impossible.

I don’'t personally expect him to leave, but if the Impact do sell Nacho, expect him to go at a very, very high price.
