The representatives of Guillermo Ochoa are almost close to a  deal with Fulham FC and Club America concerning the future of the goalkeeper.

Guillermo Ochoa has met with Alistair Mackintosh and Mark Hughes, the president and coach, respectively, of Fulham FC, and has passed his requirements for the club.

While it appears that the deal is done, some obstacles have appeared.

Guillermo Ochoa needs a working visa in order to work in Great Britain. The requirements for non-UK citizens are extensive and the EPL knows it.

Fulham denied the presence of any deal with Guillermo Ochoa. Club America announced that any deals concerning its players will be released through its official channels.

Club America appears to be displeased with Ochoa's visit to Fulham. Fulham is not content with the preliminary release of the information concerning the goalkeeper.

While the news has been gradually released, it appears that the people involved in the future of Memo Ochoa wanted to keep things a secret.

The US Latin station Univision conducted a poll among 272 people concerning Memo Ochoa in England.

172 out of 272 people surveyed (63%) think that Ochoa went to sign a contract with Fulham. 59 of 272 (22%) think that Ochoa wants to apply pressure on Club America to renew his contract.

The remaining people that were surveyed had replies that are not worth mentioning, since it is unrelated to what may be the breaking news story of Christmas 2010.

It appears that this story will not go away, with Ochoa deciding between Fulham and Club America.
