Gilmore says that the club have a 2020 contract option for their star, which they'll exercise. He also adds that he has always expected Piatti to be with the club through next season.
To address the persistent rumors involving Piatti and his departure for Argentina, I wanted to make it clear that Nacho is under contract with the Impact and the club will exercise its option for 2020. Since I arrived it has been my expectation that Nacho will be with us in 2020— Kevin Gilmore (@kgilmore88) July 10, 2019
Piatti hinted before the season started that this might be his last with the Impact, where he has 66 goals and 34 assists over 129 appearances since 2014. He has been limited to just five appearances this season due to injuries.
