Sounders FW Fredy Montero Tweets his goodbye

While nothing official has come from the team, there have been reports out for a while that Sounders FC forward Fredy Montero, the franchise’s career leader in goals, is heading to Colombia to play for Millonarios, and now Montero is saying thank you and goodbye via Twitter.

Again, nothing official yet, but an announcement seems like a formality at this point.

UPDATE

Outspoken Portland Timbers owner Merritt Paulson said via Twitter that he is sad to see Montero, a hated man in Portland, leave the Sounders.
