Vicente Sanchez reportedly has an offer from a MLS team - Club America/Fire connection to kick in?

ESPN's Jose del Valle is reporting that Club America striker Vicente Sanchez has an offer from a team in MLS. He won't say which club.

However, the Chicago Fire did announce their new partnership with Atletico Madrid, Sport Club Internacional, Al Ain, Muangthong United, Shangai Shenhua, Raja Casablanca, and most importantly here, Club America back in September. The Fire front office has said that strategic player loans are a part of the idea behind the partnership. If nothing else, the lines of communication are already there to get this deal going. Sometimes just being able to communicate with another front office in good faith is 90% of getting a deal done.

Another factor playing in the Fire's potential favor is that Pavel Pardo played with Sanchez just recently at Club America. The Fire's first designated player Cuauhtemoc Blanco was also a Club America legend like Pardo. Sanchez's tenure at America doesn't hold a candle to those two but again a path has been laid.

Most of the rumors in the Mexican media link Sanchez with a move back his hometown club, Nacional in Uruguay. Club America is not financially inclined to send him there but Sanchez is pushing for it. If Pardo can convince him Chicago is a nice place to live and Fire owner Andrew Hauptmann can open his wallet, Sanchez could be just what the team needs to pick up this off-season: a dominant striker up top.
