Multiple Sources Confirm Clubs's Interest
A source close to MLS Transfers has let us know that the New York Red Bulls are showing "true interest" in current Villareal striker Fernando Cavenaghi. The 29 year old Cavenaghi has played for the likes of Argentine giants River Plate, Spartak Moscow, Bordeaux where he was a vital part of the team who won Ligue 1 in the 2008-2009 campaign and many more.
The source has stated that interest is "mutual" and that current New York Red Bull Juninho has talked with Cavenaghi recently about joining the team. The source also interestingly stated that Cavenaghi and ex-Villareal star Giuseppe Rossi recently "talked about life in America".
Also, Futbol Mercado reported that the Red Bulls were interested earlier in the day.
If Cavenaghi signs, it seems like it will be a DP deal. The player is currently worth over $1 million in transfer fees. We were unable to find his current salary at this time.
So where does this leave the much maligned Kenny Cooper? Draft day is upon us and it looks like the clock is ticking on the 2012 leading scorer. Tomorrow is a big day for all parties involved.
