Maxi Moralez almost ended up Toronto FC
Newly signed New York City FC designated player Maximiliano Moralez almost ended up wearing Toronto FC colours. Toronto went hard after the Argentine attacking midfielder several years ago with then-manager Ryan Nelsen flying out to see Moralez. The deal didn’t go through and Toronto, once GM Tim Bezbatchenko came on board, instead went after and landed Italian Sebastian Giovinco. The two are men small in stature but hugely talented, deadly on set pieces and with a fine finishing touch. Giovinco is five foot four and 135 pounds while Moralez is 5-3 and 115 pounds.
