The Sounders issued this statement this morning regarding the loan of career goals leader Fredy Montero to Millonarios of Colombia.
Statement from Sounders FC Owner and General Manager Adrian Hanauer “We are finalizing the loan of Fredy Montero to Millonarios of Colombia for the 2013 MLS season. We hope to have this transaction completed in the next few days. Fredy has been a tremendous part of our success the last four years and this decision was not taken lightly. This was a process that Fredy and the Sounders cooperated on, and our hope is that it works out successfully for both parties.”
