Juan Agudelo: The Best MLS Signing This Month

While other Major League Soccer clubs battle over past their prime European and South American stars, the best signing this offseason has to be the New England Revolutions signing Juan Agudelo to a four year deal.


The 22-year-old Agudelo rejoins the 2014 MLS Cup runners-up after twice been unable to complete a move to Stoke City due to his inability to get a work permit.

During his 2013 stint in New England, Agudelo scored five goals in 18 games as was instrumental in helping the Revs reach the playoffs.

The young American striker now reunites with the Revs, where he replaces Patrick Mullins who was taken by NYCFC in the expansion draft. With Agudelo, Teal Bunbury and Charlie Davies New England now has an attacking trip that will get plenty of service this season from Jermaine Jones, Lee Nguyen and Kelyn Rowe.

Left out could be homegrown star Diego Fagundez who fell out of favor of Revs coach Jay Heaps last season, spending the second half of the season on the bench. Fagundez is currently playing for Uruguay as the try to qualify for the FIFA U20 World Cup.
