Agent: Mauro Rosales is “very happy with his new contract”

rosales mug.jpgIn the past few weeks I’ve received a good number of messages from concerned Sounders FC fans wondering why a new contract for Mauro Rosales hasn’t been announced.

Indications throughout the season had been that a deal would be coming sooner rather than later, and the delay has resulted in a little anxiety. Both sides of the contract negotiations have always maintained they were confident that a deal would get done, and that hasn’t changed.

Rosales’ agent, Dario Sala, told me in an email that everything is in the right place.

Rosales is “very happy with his new contract, and very excited about next season,” Sala wrote.

I’d expect the new deal to be announced in the coming weeks. As has been kicked around for several months, the contract is expected to be for two years with a salary worthy of designated player consideration (he could end up not being a DP if allocation money is used).
