Rapids News 2012: Colorado Going After 2 International Transfers

The Colorado Rapids are trying to add two international players, including Mor Diouf, who is a defender currently playing in the South African premier league. They've already made one offer to Diouf's club, according to reports out of Africa:

A South African newspaper reported the Rapids offered 3 million rands (about $363,000) as a transfer fee for Diouf, but Maritzburg turned it down. Negotiations are ongoing, Pareja said. Diouf was also drawing interest from the Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns, according to the paper.
