A report from an Argentinian sports site appears to hint at an Argentinian defensive midfielder coming to Colorado.

Argentinian sports site Mundo D has reported that Argentinian defensive midfielder Lucas Pittinari is coming to the Colorado Rapids. Here's a Google Translated version of the important bits from the post:

The best sports site Córdoba. Belgrano lost another player. Julio Furch is gone and now part Lucas Pittinari. The flywheel agreed his pass to the Colorado Rapids of Major League Soccer in the United States and remaining details to sign the agreement.

The 22-year-old Pittinari has spent his entire career with Club Atlético Belgrano, the same club that New England Revolution forward Jerry Bengston was loaned to.

I don't know how reliable any of the information here is. The article says (according to Google Translate, anyway) that the Rapids' manager is Claudio Lopez rather than Pablo Mastroeni, and it also disagrees with Wikipedia as to his age. Whatever, it's a player rumor and we're taking whatever we can get at this particular stage in time after an eerily quiet couple of weeks.

Since DM is currently one of the top needs for the Rapids at the moment, another name being thrown into the potential pot certainly won't hurt things.
