The outgoing transfer window has really clicked into gear for LAFC, it seems, as Turkish club Fenerbahçe announced on Monday they have an agreement in principle with the MLS club for forward Diego Rossi, but most notably, have a photo of Rossi on a Turkish Airlines flight headed to Istanbul.

Kulübümüz, ABD'nin Los Angeles FC takımında forma giyen Uruguaylı oyuncu Diego Rossi ile prensipte anlaşmıştır.

Rossi was credibly linked to a move to Fenerbahçe in both the Turkish and American press earlier on Monday, with the Super Lig side wasting no time in securing the deal, with the registration deadline for Europa League play in the group stage this season coming up this Thursday.
Bear in mind, the announcement notes that Rossi still needs to agree personal terms with Fenerbahçe and he needs to pass his physical to seal the deal, so this isn’t a done deal yet.
But I’d say being on the plane means he’s willing to get a deal done and I would say we’re at the 90% done phase. That means it’s probably Rossi’s final game with LAFC, although there have been rumors this deal is a loan-to-buy deal, which we’ve seen previously with Brian Rodriguez is pretty risky. But we’ll see what happens.
