Yura Movsisyan turns down Real Salt Lake offer, stays at Spartak

Real Salt Lake has ended their interest in Yura Movsisyan during this transfer window, but that doesn’t leave the club without options to improve the team in the short-term, according to

In an interview on ESPN 700, RSL technical director Craig Waibel said that Movsisyan, at Spartak Moscow, will be staying in Russia after his club underwent a coaching change.

“Yura will not be joining us in this window,” Waibel said. “I had a great conversation with him, he’s in a good situation with Spartak.”

That ends Real Salt Lake’s interest in Movsisyan during this transfer window, Waibel said.

“Unfortunately for me, that’s an easy conversation,” he said. “I’m happy for Yura that he’s got a nice home and a place that wants to play him, but unfortunately, it wasn’t the answer that I wanted.”
