VANCOUVER - Camilo Sanvezzo was pictured wearing the jersey of a Mexican team on Monday, further fuelling speculation that the flashy striker's time with the Vancouver Whitecaps will soon come to an end.

Queretaro F.C. posted pictures on the club's official Twitter feed showing the 25-year-old Brazilian wearing the team's jersey and giving a thumbs up.

However, the Whitecaps say that Sanvezzo is still under contract with them after the Major League Soccer club picked up his option for the 2014 season.

The Whitecaps reiterated that Sanvezzo remains the club's property, tweeting on Monday that "Camilo is under contract with (Vancouver). The club is working with MLS on this matter."

Sanvezzo led all of MLS with 22 goals in 2013 for a Whitecaps team that missed the playoffs.

The loss of Sanvezzo would be a huge blow to rookie head coach Carl Robinson, who replaced the fired Martin Rennie last month.

The off-season has been anything but quiet for the Whitecaps. The club struck out in its attempt to hire former United States national team coach Bob Bradley and had to deal with criticism from striker Darren Mattocks on a Jamaican television program.
