The news hasn't been made official yet by the Vancouver Whitecaps, but according to an ESPN reporter, Camilo Sanvezzo is gone for good.
A transfer deal between the Whitecaps and Queretaro FC — the Mexican club that the striker has decided to join — is reportedly done. The rumoured fee is worth about $1.5 million, which is significantly low for Major League Soccer's Golden Boot winner.
The split comes after Camilo and his agent decided not to honour their contract with the Vancouver club, instead forcing the 'Caps to negotiate a transfer by training and signing with QFC. The move will undoubtedly set a poor precedent for future players wanting to escape their contract.
Camilo led the league in scoring with 22 goals and six assists in 2013 with the Whitecaps. He was entering the club option year of his contract and was set to make $250,000.
