Starfighter Sebastian Giovincothe future with toronto FC was on Wednesday Wednesday with a source confirming that MLS has received an offer for Italian.
Toronto has already rejected one offer for Atomic Ant from the Middle East club. But the new offer is played with the January transmission window to close.
The former MLS MVP missed a training last week with a club spokesman who said the 32-year-old Italian international was justified for "leg leaks".
But after being questioned several times, the MLS club eventually admitted Giovinco, who is unsuccessful in contract negotiations, was not with the team that trains at the University of California, Irvine.
The club spokesman said Giovinco was allowed to stay at another hotel for treatment. The club said it was expected to return on Thursday, which is what was said during the week of Wednesday's session.
Now the club is considering its future.
Giovinco, who is in the last year of his contract, left the camp amidst reports of the ongoing transfer. The team said on Monday he had gone to Los Angeles and visited a doctor for a sore foot.
TFC President Bill Manning says the team is in everyday conversations Giovincoagent is a new agreement. The Italian was the most significant MLS last year worth 7,115 million USD.
Manning says the team offered him a new deal to get him to the top six or seven in the league, which last year was at least $ 5 million a year.
"They ( Giovinco camp) does not like it, "Manning said in an interview Tuesday.
Manning says both sides hope that a solution can be reached sooner rather than later. Giovinco, who wore his heart on his sleeve, made it clear that he wanted the matter to be resolved. Toronto wants to be happy Giovinco but he does not want to get rid of him, due to his age.
In addition, he can sign a pre-contract with another club in July.
Manning's negotiating agreements were "amplified by external pressures" with the presence of so-called football brokers and well-connected promoters who look at the strikes the agents try to conclude with the clubs concerned.
In four seasons with Toronto, Giovinco has 68 goals and 52 assists in 114 regular season games (111 starts). He was awarded the MVP in his debut season 2015 when he was directly involved in 65 percent Toronto's 58 goals with 22 goals and 16 assists.
TFC entered the play-off for the first time this year, and in 2016 it entered the MLS Cup final and won everything in 2017, capturing the MLS championship, Shield fans and the Canadian championship.
Last season he scored 13 goals and 15 assists in 28 matches because Toronto suffered in the year.
