We all know the importance of being wary of reports of transfers or moves, particularly with some international publications. However, this caught my eye:
Nils Hugon @NilsHugon
Tobin Heath a fait part de son souhait de rester au #PSG, qui veut la garder (fin du contrat de 6 mois en juin) #Feminines
Hugon's Twitter profile states that he is "Cameraman / sportscaster for Channel WebTV-Supporters of the current PSG" (or in the original French: "Cadreur/Journaliste sportif à Canal Supporters-WebTV sur l'actualité du PSG")
I don't speak French, but Google Translate yield the following translation of the original Tweet:
Tobin Heath expressed her desire to remain at # PSG , who wants to keep (end of 6 month contract in June)"
Between Heath and Rapinoe, there has been far more information about Rapinoe returning than Heath. I think the Thorns definitely need Heath (or another attacking midfielder) to enable the attack to deal with teams that play 2 defensive midfielders, as both Sky Blue FC and FCKC did, and Seattle did in the second match.
If Heath doesn't return to Portland, that will make this season significantly more challenging, I think.
