Newest Target, Alan Pulido?

Another day, another rumor:
Colorado Rapids intent on signing Mexican forward Alan Pulido; TD Paul Pravo travelling to Olympiakos tomorrow to get a deal done
(I'm pretty sure Paul Pravo is the guy who signed Casey Conor)

Pulido is playing for Olympiacos in Greece currently after forcing his way out of Tigres earlier this year.  He total first team time has been 15 minutes in a cup match though and reportedly he's unhappy about his lack of game action.  At Tigres he scored 23 times in 101 games from 2010-2015 though at age 19 when he was signed most of those appearances and goals came later in that run.  Pulido is also a member of the Mexican National team, being an unused reserve in Brazil i 2014 and scoring 4 goals in 6 appearances in the last two years (including against the U.S.).

Obviously the big concern with Pulido is his somewhat questionable past with his attempt to leave Meixoc. has a writeup here.  If he wants to get his career back on track by joining the Rapids and excelling in MLS this is a great signing.  If he's just looking to find his next new home where he'll be unhappy then this could be a disaster.
