Binks Immediate Future Not Yet Decided

Loan from Bologna runs out on last day of 2020.

Montreal Impact v New England Revolution
Luis Binks loan to Montreal Impact from Bologna expires 31 December.

With potentially only three games of the MLS season remaining for Montreal Impact, Luis Binks is still in the dark around what happens next.

His loan deal from Bologna to Montreal Impact does not expire until 31 December, meaning he could still be here for the resumption of the CONCACAF Champions League if that happens in December.

With all the uncertainty and potential for change on a day to day basis, it’s hard to know what the immediate future will bring.

In Italy, Bologna has not exactly been watertight in defence since the beginning of Serie A, conceding ten goals in five matches so far, including four in one game at home to Sassuolo. The Rossoblu find themselves in the bottom four with one win and four defeats.

Japanese international Takehiro Tomiyasu has been ever-present in central defence and is most often partnered by the Brazilian Danilo, although Danilo was left on the bench for the 0-1 defeat at Benevento, when aging Chilean international midfielder Gary Medel was preferred.

Medel was injured and withdrawn in the 19th minute of that game and hasn’t yet regained fitness.

Twenty-seven year-old Argentinian, Nehuen Paz, who’s played most of his football away from Bologna on loan, since joining the club, partnered Tomiyasu for the 2-0 Coppa Italia victory over Reggina this evening, the only clean-sheet for Bologna so far. Danilo watched from the bench.

So obviously with half an eye on developments across the Atlantic, Binks remains focused on the job at hand in New Jersey or hopefully, wherever else the play-offs will dictate...

“I haven’t spoken to the club or Bologna about it yet. I’m literally just focused on these next three games and the play-offs. Hopefully we can get there.

“So nothing’s been said about my [immediate] future. I don’t know yet whether I’ll come back, or whether I’ll go there [Italy]. I just know I am here until the end of the season and I’ve got to play well until then.”
