Panamanian forward tweets that “nothing is official”.
A tweet from Panamanian striker Gabriel Torres has left his move to Colorado Rapids shrouded in uncertainty.
Buenas noches señores hasta este momento nada es oficial se esta en negociaciones con diferentes clubes pronto se sabra el club oficial !

Roughly translated the tweet reads: “Good evening gentlemen, at this moment nothing is official, negotiations are ongoing with several clubs, soon we will know the official club!”
A move to the Rapids had previously seemed the most likely choice for Torres, and it remains to be seen which other clubs are interested in the forward.
If the 24-year-old does arrive in Colorado, he will become the Rapids only Designated Player, and will bring a goal scoring habit to the team.
Joint top-scorer in the Gold Cup, Torres also helped his current team Zamora FC to the Venezuelan title with 11 goals in 15 games, and was the youngest player to be capped by the Panamanian national team, aged 16.
MLSsoccer.com writer Chris Bianchi, who covers the Colorado Rapids, moved to assure fans after Torres’ tweet, tweeting himself that he still expects the deal to be completed this week.
