Roman Torres staying put after Sounders reportedly slap $1M price tag on center back

New, 7 comments

Agent confirms interest from former club.

Roman Torres’ longterm future may not be entirely secured, but it looks like he’ll at least be sticking around through the end of the season. His agent told a Panamanian news outlet that Colombia’s Millonarios had explored the possibility of a transfer, but the report suggests they were scared off by the Sounders’ $1 million transfer valuation.

“It is ruled out,” Edgardo Carles is quoted as saying in regards to a potential move.

That kind of price tag is more of a “make me sell” than a number that suggests the Sounders were seriously looking to move the 31-year-old center back. That neither Torres nor his agent seem to be making much of a stink over this further suggests he’s reasonably happy here.

At the same time, Torres is likely going into the offseason without a guaranteed contract — this being his third year with the team — and probably wouldn’t mind securing his future.
