Toronto FC says it has not re­ceived for­mal of­fer for Giovinco

Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

Toronto FC says it has not re­ceived any for­mal trans­fer of­fers for star striker Se­bas­tian Giovinco.

The Ital­ian’s agent made head­lines re­cently when he said there was an “im­por­tant of­fer” for Giovinco from the deep-pock­eted Chi­nese Su­per League.

Toronto gen­eral man­ager Tim Bez­batchenko says that has not trans­lated into a for­mal of­fer, although Chi­nese teams have un­til the end of Fe­bru­ary to ac­quire play­ers.

But Bez­batchenko says the team is not in­ter­ested in sell­ing the for­mer league most valu­able player.
