Heading into the offseason, one of the biggest items on Real Salt Lake's to do list was to retain the services of on loan striker and Costa Rican international Alvaro Saborio.
On Wednesday, that iten can now be checked off. The Salt Lake Tribune is reporting that RSL has come to an agreement with Saborio, and the clubs that formerly held his rights, Sion in Switzerland, and Sarpissa in Costa Rica, in order to sign Saborio and add him as the club's first Designated Player.
The 28-year-old striker joined RSL on loan prior to the 2010 season, playing a big role in both domestic and CONCACAF Champions League campaigns. He scored 18 goals in all competitions, while making 29 appearances. Saborio is currently recovering from minor knee surgery. Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed, but the length of the deal is reported as four years.
What do you think of RSL's move? Is it a good one? Will Saborio continue to have an impact?
