Borgetti Weighing MLS Offers

Mexican star Jared Borgetti is mulling over offers from a pair of MLS clubs.
The Cruz Azul striker has finished the first 12-months of his two-year deal with the team, but has the option to leave after completing his first year, under terms of the contract. After rejecting offers to move abroad to Ukraine or Russia, Borgetti, has revealed that the Colorado Rapids and Kansas City Wizards have both expressed interest in signing him.

"The truth is we are looking at some options, but I don't rule out the possibility of staying with Cruz Azul. There is nothing concrete at the moment," he said. "In the United States, the way clubs manage transfers is different, so depending on the people there we could hold talks with one team or another. We have already talked to Kansas and Colorado, looking at what possibilities we have. Anyway, I won't pick up the first offer that appears. I will try to stay on in Mexican football."

Borgetti, 34, has been a regular with El Tri since 1997, scoring 43 goals in 87 appearances. His greatest club success came as a member of Santos Laguna, scoring an amazing 189 times in 295 games from 1997-2004. Most recently, he played for Bolton Wanderers in the English Premier League, scoring in league play, the FA Cup, and the Carling Cup for the club before being released in 2006. After a brief stint with Saudi Arabia's Al-Ittihad, Borgetti returned home, signing with Cruz Azul in '07.
