CF Montréal: Rudy Camacho at the heart of transaction rumors
Last night, Montreal CF lost their second match of the Leagues Cup group stage. The duel took place at Saputo Stadium.

Hernan Losada’s men lost 1-0 to D.C. United, making the club’s task more difficult for the rest of the tournament:

Montreal CF fans may have been delighted to see that the club’s star striker, Romell Quioto, has resumed training (with ball) in Honduras. Quioto is injured (hamstring injury) and last played against Toronto FC on May 13.

That said…

Montreal CF fans will probably be disappointed to learn that Rudy Camacho seems to be on his way out. Vincent Destouches, who provides commentary on MLS matches for Apple TV, posted a tweet this morning in which we learn that the central defender is currently at the heart of transaction rumours sending him to either Toronto or Columbus :

In Columbus, Camacho would have the opportunity to reunite with former Montreal CF head trainer Wilfried Nancy.

And, in Toronto… Camacho would end up with the Montreal club’s sworn enemy.

Could there be a more ironic scenario than this?

But Camacho is the catalyst of CF Montreal’s defense and, at the time of writing, probably the team’s most important player. In fact, he agreed to take a pay cut to stay in the city when he signed his old pact, and has stated outright that he wants to play in Montreal for many years to come…

All these elements combine to make the trade rumors about him surprising. Is there a clear explanation, especially given that Montreal CF is in the thick of the MLS playoff race right now?

It’s bizarre, to say the least, and that’s the observation going around right now.

It’s as if the Habs were a few points away from the playoffs and Kent Hughes decided to trade Mike Matheson, the club’s blue-line stalwart. Doesn’t make sense…

And so it’s only natural that experts and fans alike should have so many questions.

What happens next will be interesting to watch.
