Tabaré Viudez is close to rejoining Nacional from Argentina's River Plate. The 26-year old winger played his last game for the Uruguayan record champion in 2012.

According to a report from Ovación, Tabaré Viudez bid farewell to his River Plate teammates in Orlando, Florida the past afternoon. The Copa Libertadores holders are currently holding their pre-season camp in the United States and will, if everything goes according to plan, tackle the upcoming challenges without Viudez. 

Nacional president José Luis Rodríguez has told media representatives that the player will arrive in Montevideo today and sign his contract after the final talks.

After coming up through the ranks of Defensor Sporting, Viudez joined AC Milan aged 18 for €2.5 million. He could not make it into the first team of the iconic Italian club, which loaned him back to Defensor. From there, it led him to Mexico to play for CF América and Nexaca, before arriving at Nacional for the first time back in 2011. He stayed there until June 2012 and continued his career at Turkish club Kasimpasa for nearly three years. In July 2015, he joined River Plate.

Viudez, with just 169cm body size, is a speedy winger who is able to fill several positions up front. While the main one is the right wing, he is able to play on the left side as well as secondary striker. His two-footedness allows him to be very flexible and mobile. At Nacional, he will join the battle for a starting position with the likes of Leandro Barcia, Brian Lozano and Kevin Ramírez.

As you can tell from the picture above, Viudez is familiar with the club legends. When Álvaro Recoba played his testimonial at Gran Parque Central a while back, he invited the winger to join his side for a fantastic evening.
