Looks like that resolution is coming up quick, per Vancouver Whitecaps head coach Carl Robinson's postgame presser:
Carl Robinson says to expect something official on Octavio Rivero in likely 24 to 48 hours. #vwfc— Jonathan Tannenwald (@thegoalkeeper) June 26, 2016
That was bolstered early Saturday by ESPNFC Editor Arch Bell:
Can confirm that Vancouver Whitecaps FW Octavio Rivero to Colo Colo deal is almost done. Could be finalized as early as today.— Arch Bell (@ArchBell) June 25, 2016
Vancouver subsequently chimed in Saturday evening, tweeting the following from their official account:
Octavio Rivero is currently with the team in Pennsylvania but will not dress for the match. We have no further comment at this time. #VWFC— Vancouver Whitecaps (@WhitecapsFC) June 25, 2016
The Uruguyan Designated Player has scored 12 goals in 46 games (39 starts) since joining MLS before the 2015 season. After racing out to five goals in his first six games -- earning Etihad Airways Player of the Month honors -- Rivero's production for Vancouver stalled. He went scoreless in a pair of playoff games last year, and tallied only twice in 12 matches this season, with his starting spot recently in flux.
