According to Tom Bogert, a whistleblower for Major League Soccer’s website, Torres was absent from CF Montreal’s training session on Monday. Last week there were rumors about a possible transfer of the 25-year-old athlete.

In two seasons with Montreal XI, the Argentine has recorded seven goals and 12 assists in 55 games. During the last campaign of the Garber circuit it saw less use as there were only 15 starts due to the success of Djordje Mihailovic. Meanwhile, CF finished second in the Eastern Conference during the regular season.

The club have lost a number of elements in recent weeks including Alistair Johnston, Ismaël Koné and Mihailovic.
