[MLS 2014 COUNTDOWN] Vancouver said good-bye to disgruntled Brazilian striker Camilo, agreeing with Mexican club Queretaro to a transfer fee believed to be in excess of $2 million -- a club record -- for the sale of the 2013 leading scorer.
The 25-year-old striker finished with 39 goals and 16 assists in 92 games during his three seasons with Vancouver.
“We have made the decision to part ways with Camilo Sanvezzo,” said Whitecaps FC head coach Carl Robinson. "In doing so, we were able to negotiate a club record transfer fee that will give us additional flexibility as we continue to build our club for the upcoming season and beyond."
