El Zorro to Melbourne or is it Sydney?

(Source: La Nacion)

News broke late yesterday that both Melbourne and Sydney were chasing Costa Rican midfielder, Carlos Hernández, nicknamed 'El Zorro' or 'The Fox'. According to Costa Rican newspaper La Nacion he was keen on signing with Melbourne due to conflicts with his current club Alajuelense of Costa Rica, second biggest team behind Saprissa. However, according to another source he was keen on signing for Sydney. This source however is less reliable than La Nacion and quotes Sydney has being champions and playing in the Asian Champions League.

He has apparently played an important role in the Costa Rican national team at all levels and even qualifiers for the senior team, (where he has scored six times in 19 games) for the 2006 World Cup where Costa Rica qualified. According to sources he is a great shot from distance so would be a good pickup for set pieces.

Apparently an announcement will be made today from either Sydney or Melbourne.
