- FC Steauna Bucure?ti, Juan Toja, Summer Transfers
A lot of you have been surprised with the All-Star selection of FC Dallas midfielder Juan Toja. I know I have been but a good discussion has come out of it, is the league preparing to shop Toja to a club elsewhere by showing him off in an All-Star event?
It is possible.
There have been rumors that one Romanian club (FC Steauna Bucure?ti) has some big time interest in the long-haired Columbian.
Over at the Los-Toros.com, they’ve seem to find the bad news from across the pond that points to Toja leaving for a transfer fee of around $500,000. They even put up a screen shot of Toja’s Wiki page that showed him as a member of Steauna (which was later changed).
With a pair of Colombians already on the Romanian club’s roster, the move sounds almost legit. I’m still waiting to hear more details about it but with the random selection to the All-Star game some of the pieces seem to be falling into place here. I guess we will see what happens here.
What do you all make of this possible move for Toja? Does the All-Star selection sound that fishy that the league would be shopping him too?
EDIT: Buzz at 3rd Degree says the club isn’t shopping Toja. But WFAA adds more fuel to the fire with a quote from Toja.
“Yes, there has been contact with an offer to FC Dallas”, said Toja. “I’m very interested because I can play the UEFA Cup and Champions (League), it’s an offer I have to examine.”
