Alvaro Fernandez wants to return to Seattle at some point

Otto Greule Jr

On the verge of the title in Argentina, Fernandez spoke to FutbolMLS.com and shared his love of Seattle and a desire to be a Sounder again.

Since getting dealt from Seattle Sounders FC to make way for Christian Tiffert, Alvaro Fernandez has played for four different teams in four different leagues. The Chicago Fire still hold his MLS rights as he has been on loan while playing out his contract. His most recent stop sees him on the edge of winning the Argentine Primera title with Gimnasia La Plata.

FutbolMLS.com took that as an opportunity to chat with the former Designated Player about his time in Argentina, his chances of making the World Cup and his time in Seattle. He is still in the picture for Uruguay, but injuries have him on the edge of selection.

Flaco makes his love of Seattle clear. He would like to return, whether that means in a year, or three, or five, he would like to be a Sounder again. A loyal bi-lingual reader translated another answer about Seattle;

To the best of Sounder at Heart's knowledge he is no longer a DP. The Fire hold his rights. His last salary was reported as $366k in the final 2013 salary release. His wages do not appear in the 2014 edition. His current contract ends this Summer.

As the roster is currently constructed, it's hard to see the Sounders devoting such a large portion of the salary cap to a position where they are relatively deep. But the Sounders never soured on Fernandez's abilities and it wouldn't be the craziest thing for him to be brought back at some point.
