According to Amado Guevara’s U.S.-based agent, Patrick McCabe, talks to bring the former MLS MVP back to Major League Soccer have stalled, though sources believe the talks are still very much alive.
"Amado will not be joining MLS at this time," McCabe said in an email. "The MLS made a concerted effort to see that Amado rejoin the league and we were able to reach an agreement but unfortunately certain obligations could not be met within the requested time period and unfortunately this means that Amado will stay with Motagua until the end of their current season.
"Amado does hope to return to MLS during the summer transfer period."
Does this mean the deal is dead? According to one source within MLS, the deal is still very much alive while at least one league source believes the deal could be completed well before the April 15 transfer deadline, which is still almost three weeks away.
Sources within MLS would not say what the major hold-up is, but one source believes compensation to be paid to Guevara’s current club, Motagua, has become an issue.
Guevara was in the Florida on Wednesday playing for Honduras’ in its 2-1 victory against Colombia in Ft. Lauderdale. Guevara assisted on Henry Thomas’ game-winning goal.
