It looks like Emmanuel Reynoso's time in MLS is coming to a bitter, premature end. The Argentine has yet to report to Minnesota and is reportedly in very poor standing with club officials. Even if he does play for the Loons, this relationship seems all but over.
If Reynoso is in fact gone, then Minnesota is cooked. The Loons have arguably the most heliocentric attack in the league built entirely around Reynoso, and without him could flounder. The rest of the roster is uninspired and lacking. If Rey isn't in town, it could be a long year for former Orlando City boss Adrian Heath.
