Nunez Tells FCD To Trade Him

With FC Dallas on the brink of signing Brazilian Denilson to a designated player contract in hopes of making a deep run into the MLS playoffs, one Hoops player is wanting out. Midfielder Ramon Nunez has gone to the club and demanded a trade.

Nunez was not apart of the 1-1 draw with the Mexican Chivas side in last night’s SuperLiga game.

“I think I’m ready for a move,” Nunez said.

“Hopefully that’s in the works and can be done as soon as possible.”

Nunez has three goals and two assist to his name on the season but hasn’t been a vital part in the lineup for some time now. Most around the team believe one or two players will have to be dumped to make room for Denilson and Nunez is a contract that Dallas would be more than willing to cut in order to make the proper room. Most also figure that Marcelo Saragosa’s time in Dallas could be in doubt with the addition of Denilson because of the number of senior internationals that Dallas has and would need to have to be able to put Denilson on the roster.

I figure this is a decent thing for both sides. I like Nunez but too many times I watch him and think he is a fairly wasted talent out on the pitch. He should be a solid attacking midfielder but time and time again he misses chances that shouldn’t be missed or just looks lost out on the pitch. Getting rid of him wouldn’t be a huge loss to the Hoops as he hasn’t done a whole lot for them this season.

    This could have a two-fold reason for Ramon's comment.<br />
    <br />
    1) He is frustrated about not getting play time<br />
    <br />
    2) He knows he is probably on the way out anyway. Dallas IS going to sign Denilson, and Saragos is pretty much a lock as the SI to go. That means FCD has to clear ~100k more, and Ramon is the obvious choice there. So, if you were Ramon and you knew you were probably getting traded anyway, wouldn't you demand to be traded before they got the opportunity? It makes your value look a little higher…at least I think it would.<br />

    I say good riddance. I said all along he's the one we should trade to get Denilson.
