Real Salt Lake are looking to the future just as much as they are hoping to win an MLS Cup title in 2012.
Real Salt Lake announced four moves on Thursday, including the re-signings of Fabian Espindola and Ned Grabavoy. According to the team's press release, Espindola signed a new four-year deal while Grabavoy agreed to a three-year contract that will keep him with the club until 2014.
The club also announced it exercised its purchase option on midfielder Yordany Alvarez from USL Pro League club Orlando City S.C. RSL also purchased forward Paulo Jr., who joined Real Salt Lake in September 2010 on loan from Miami FC. The two players signed three-year deals with Real Salt Lake.
Here are more notes from around the league:
BILELLO ADDRESSES MORENO CONCERNS
Just what exactly is going on with Jose Moreno and the New England Revolution is unclear, but club president Brian Bilello took to the web on Thursday to shed some light on the situation. Bilello informed fans that the team has been unable to reach Moreno during the past day-and-a-half to verify if he made comments about staying with Colombian club Once Caldas despite having already agreed to a loan deal with the Revolution. Bilello also wrote that an update would come when the club is able to provide one.
MORSINK UNDERGOES SUCCESSFUL SURGERY
D.C. United midfielder Kurt Morskink underwent successful surgery on Wednesday, the club announced via a press release. The surgery was to repair Morton's Neuroma, an injury to the nerve between the toes which causes pain and thickening. The 27-year-old Morsink, who signed a new deal with United in December, is anticipated to miss 4-6 weeks.
