After three days off, Fortuna trainer Uwe Rösler (52) started preparing for the game in Darmstadt on Tuesday (Sun., 1.30 p.m. / Sky). One was missing: Alfredo Morales (30)!
The midfielder was released from the club. Reason: “Alfredo Morales, whose contract expires at the end of the season, is in promising negotiations for a transfer to the MLS. “
The first Fortune leaves the sinking ship!
According to BILD information, Morales (market value: 1.2 million euros) should agree with New York City FC and could move to the USA in just a few days. The season starts there on April 13th, the transfer window is open until the beginning of May. Now both clubs have to give their final approval. Should Morales leave Düsseldorf, Fortuna collects a small transfer for him.
In Darmstadt, the clearer would not have been there anyway because of a yellow ban. In the league he has made 15 appearances so far this season.
Morales would fulfill his very personal dream with the move. His goal has always been to want to play in the USA at some point. Most recently, Morales was back in the US national team.
