So what can we take away from all of this? I don’t know.
Transfers can be a complete crapshoot. How a player adapts to new situations, especially really young players, is almost impossible to predict. I will say, Torres feels a lot closer to Diego Rossi than Barco or Rodriguez. He’s not just a prospect who’s shown flashes, he was legitimately the best player on the best team in the league.
Just by looking at Peñarol Twitter, you can tell how important and impactful a player he was in Uruguay. That makes me confident that he can become a legitimate superstar in this league. He was a proven talent and with the guidance of Oscar Pareja and veteran leaders like Mauricio Pereyra and Junior Urso, this is a really exciting transfer both for Orlando City and Facundo Torres.
