Rumor: Chivas USA to acquire defender Jhon Kennedy Hurtado from Chicago Fire?

Is another move right on the horizon?

Following the shock news of Chivas USA's trade of Mauro Rosales for Nigel Reo-Coker on Thursday, Ives Galarcep reported on Friday that another trade involving CUSA could be in the works:

With Carlos Bocanegra sidelined indefinitely with post-concussion symptoms, it seems the club needs to look elsewhere to bolster the center back position, and Hurtado is an MLS veteran who could slot in immediately at the position. The 30-year-old is in his first season with the Fire after spending the previous four with the Seattle Sounders.

Hurtado probably won't light the world on fire, but he's competent, and it's unlikely an MLS team would look to offload an All-Star caliber CB at this point in a season, right?

Stay tuned to see if the Colombian will really be joining the Goats. We'll obviously update the story as we learn more.
