Bit by bit, inch by inch, concierge by concierge, the on-going saga surrounding Toronto FC target Maximiliano Urruti might be coming to a close — finally.

A downtown Toronto hotel couldn’t confirm a signing, or even when Urruti will arrive, but did provide what could be a final tidbit into saga that stretches back to early April.

The Toronto Sun has learned Urruti, the Argentine forward TFC has been chasing for the better part of four months, is a confirmed guest at a hotel in downtown Toronto.

Although a local concierge would only say early Tuesday that Urruti hadn’t yet checked in at his temporary residence, he did confirm that the 22-year-old transfer target is expected to arrive at the aforementioned inn as a guest.
