Revolution Transfers 2015: Honduran club eyeing Bengtson

Real España expresses interest in New England Revolution striker Jerry Bengtson.

Jerry Bengtson could return to Honduras, if Real España president Fuad Abufele has his way.

Abufele expressed interest in the lanky striker when speaking to media this week, noting that Bengtson's future is currently in limbo despite holding a contract with MLS. The club president also expressed uncertainty in regard to whether or not Bengtson would like to return to his native land.

Bengtson was most recently with Belgrano of Argentina as part of a year-long loan. The relocation failed to produce results as the Honduran only collected one goal in 15 games (two starts). Although Bengtson is no longer with Belgrano, he's ineligible to play for the Revs until the loan expires on Jun. 30.

While rejoining the Revolution is certainly a possibility for 28-year-old, there are other options as well. Revolution general manager Michael Burns addressed the situation during a recent episode of State of the Revs, saying, "Are there other possibilities that can happen? A loan extension? Or he ends up going to another club? For sure, but there is always that possibility that come July 1st he is back in a Revs uniform."

Bengtson joined the Revolution in 2012 after playing with Vida and Motagua of Honduras.
