Report: NYCFC make offer for Colombian midfielder Macnelly Torres


Andrea Pirlo is on his way out of New York City FC, leaving the club with a Designated Player spot to play with this winter.

According to a report, they’re already making moves to fill that spot.

Colombian outlet HSB Noticias reported on Friday that NYCFC have made an offer for Atletico Nacional attacking midfielder Macnelly Torres. Torres, who will turn 33 next week, has spent the bulk of his career in Colombia. He has 13 goals in 66 league appearances since he returned to Nacional in 2015 for his second stint with the club.

Torres has 39 career caps for the Colombian national team, including eight appearances in their successful 2018 World Cup campaign.

NYCFC will begin their Audi 2017 MLS Cup Playoffs campaign on Tuesday, when they’ll open the first leg of the Eastern Conference Semifinals at Columbus Crew SC (8 pm ET; ESPN in the US | TSN1/4/5, TVAS in Canada).
