Daily Update: 2/18/2020
Orlando played in an open door friendly with an Icelandic team whose name I don't feel like trying to spell at the moment. We won 3-1 with two goals from Nani and one from Benji. Can we just talk about how prolific Nani has been this preseason? I don't know if it's down to him being more in shape than the opposition or something else but he has really started off with a bang. I believe he scored in Mexico, he scored against Montreal, and now he's scored two tonight. Maybe this is a strategy from Pareja; get our best player in front of the goal as many times as possible. If so, it's working. I wasn't at the game and wasn't able to watch it (if there was a stream up) so I don't really have any other thoughts.
Florinel Coman (orlando_central)
It looks like our offer for Florinel Coman of $7.6 million and 60% of any future sale was rejected. The deal was reportedly structured as $7.6 million to the club, $1.05 million to the agent, and $1.05 million to the player, which is where yesterday's report got the $9.7 million figure. Right now, the deal looks like it is off. I guess that means we should see some reports of our next target over the next day or so. Whether that is Alvaro Garcia or someone else, we will see.
