Alvaro Fernandez addresses rumors of his departure: “If something comes along that’s great for everybody, then we’ll look at it.”

“This isn’t anything new,” he said through a translator. “I’ve been a professional soccer player for a while and there are always going to be rumors about this team or that team. But I’m really happy playing here in Seattle. I love the city, I love this team, and if something comes along that’s great for everybody, then we’ll look at it. But right now I’m just happy and focused on playing for the Sounders.”

I followed up and asked how involved he is in the process.

“I sometimes find about things through the internet,” he said, “because really my manager is the one who’s taking care of the information between the club here and the club who might be interested. But I really don’t have much to do in that regard, so I just focus on soccer.”
