Di Vaio weighing offer from Impact

Bologna striker Marco Di Vaio recently revealed that one option for the next destination in his career is the Montreal Impact, and the expansion MLS club has confirmed that.

The Impact held a conference call on Friday, and they said the team is in talks with Di Vaio over a potential deal that would bring him to the club at the end of the current Serie A season. Montreal sporting director Nick De Santis added that the Italian striker would be brought in for further discussions in late May.

"Di Vaio will finish the season with Bologna and will visit Montreal around May 25-30," said De Santi.

The news of Di Vaio visiting Montreal adds to the reports from earlier in the week that claimed the former Italy international had agreed to a deal in principle with the Impact, though the details of how he will join the club still need to be worked out since his current contract with Bologna runs through June 2013.

Di Vaio, who will turn 36 in July, has scored 10 goals in 34 league matches this season. He has 65 goals in 140 Serie A games since the fall of 2008, and has represented the Azzurri 14 times in his career while scoring twice.

What do you think of the Impact possibly signing Di Vaio? Think he would be a good addition to the team, league? Should the Impact look for a younger forward?
