Report: Toca set to sign for Libertatea!
26-year-old romanian international Adrian Toca is set to join romanian media giants Libertatea, well-informed sources confirmed for this blog, ending months of speculation regarding his future. Toca is believed to have agreed terms with the team, and will join them in the first day of the transfer window, july 1.
Coming as a free player, after he quit ProSport for the second time in his career days ago, Toca is said to be thrilled about his move to Pipera-Stadium. „Obviously, it’s a dream move. I cannot be more happier”, he said, after the papers were finally completed. „I feel like having a great chance here. Teaming up with a lot of great players, playing for a big club, which certainly have a big chance to win the title, it gives me a whole new perspective. It’s great!”, a delighted Toca said, while refusing to give details about his contract details.
The flamboyant midfielder briefly appeared in his second stint with ProSport, earlier this season, despite a more succesfull first one, several years back. Thought to be unsetteled and unhappy with his manager, Toca was often heard in the locker room saying he needs a new challenge and wants to play for a club who is able to match his ambitions. Finally, he confronted the management and asked for a transfer. Only a day was enough for him to secure a deal with one of the greatest teams in recent history.
The move is hardly a surprising one: rumours were circulating in the market for months, linking Toca with Libertatea, but both the player and his new club were quick to deny them.
Known as a versatile, big-mouth, hard to please, inconstant, but talented player, Toca was recently criticised for his complaceny, although he alterneted some poor performances with a couple of brilliant ones in the last two years.
He is going to Libertatea in a very important moment for his new club. The seven time romanian media champions are having a furious transfer campaign, in order to win another one next season. „This year we want to win it all. Every single trophy, every single game. We cant afford not to do that”, a source from the club said.
The player will most likely be presented to the media monday, in a news conference. He will wear again number 24.
