According to a tweet from Colorado Rapids beat writer Marco Cummings, it just might be happening. The UK's Sun reports that the Powers has been handed a trial by English Championship side Reading FC. This would be in line with what Daniel Boniface from The Denver Post reported last week that Powers could be sold to Europe this off-season
"He's a very sharp young man, he has everything thought through," Rapids vice president of soccer operations Paul Bravo said Thursday. "And Europe is something that he would like to experience somewhere down the road in his career."
That down the road could be a whole lot closer than anyone realized it seems (if these reports are true). Powers was a bright spot this season for the Rapids with three goals and six assists. He is 24 years old and it would be a shame to lose him, but if Powers wants to leave, the Rapids need to strike while the iron is hot.
We at Burgundy Wave will keep an eye on any further movement.
