Toronto FC paves the way for return of Spanish midfielder Víctor Vázquez

Toronto FC has selected Víctor Vázquez in Stage 2 of the Major League Soccer re-entry draft, paving the way for the Spanish midfielder's second stint with the club.

The 35-year-old Vázquez joined TFC ahead of the 2017 MLS season and helped the Reds to a treble with victories in the MLS Cup, the Supporters’ Shield and the Canadian Championship.

Vázquez returned for the 2018 season but was limited to 21 games due to injury and joined Qatar's Al-Arabi Sports Club after the campaign.

He had 18 goals and 28 assists in 65 appearances across competitions during his two years in Toronto.

After another year in Qatar with Umm Salal Sport Club and a season in Belgium with K.A.S Eupen, he returned to MLS in 2021 and spent the last two seasons with LA Galaxy, where he registered five goals and 11 assists over 57 appearances in all competitions.

Selecting a player in Stage 2 requires the selecting club to make the player an offer by a date determined and communicated by MLS.
