Guevara Deal: Here's What Happened
Chivas USA "agreed" to trade star midfielder Amado Guevara to Toronto FC. In other words, it was a handshake deal only. Chivas told Guevara he was being traded before finalizing the transaction -- big mistake. Guevara expressed his displeasure. Toronto asked for permission (and, surprisingly, got it) to speak to the the upset Guevara before they put the finishing touches on the trade. Guevara then told Toronto he did not want to play there. Toronto subsequently declined to sign the official league papers certifying the trade. Somewhere, there is an unsigned Guevara-to-Toronto trade document floating around.
Can the deal be saved? I'm told it is very unlikely.
