MLS- New York Red Bulls

Red Bulls sign Juan Agudelo

The New York Red Bulls have signed forward Juan Agudelo to a homegrown Generation adidas contract.  Agudelo's New York-based agent, Ron Waxman, confirmed the deal to SBI on Thursday night.

A member of the U.S. Under-17 national team and product of the Red Bulls Youh Academy, Agudelo impressed during pre-season with the Red Bulls after a successful trial stint with Colombian club Millonarios. Details of the contract were not made available.

Agudelo joins a crowded stable of forwards for the Red Bulls that includes Juan Pablo Angel, Macoumba Kandji, John Wolyniec, Conor Chinn and recently-signed Ghanaian forward Ibrahim Salou. He has impressed with his skill on the ball and improved strength, and should get minutes despite being just 17.

As a Homegrown Player, Agudelo will not count toward the Red Bulls' 24-man roster.

    Well, I’m a New Yorker and I’d be perfectly okay if our Harrison Red Bulls let Wolyniec go.


  • Smith

    I realize that it’s too early to predict success for the player or the club but it does seem that, for foreign guys, Soler & Backe have a better handle on how to build an MLS side & what avenues to pursue than the Legendary Professor of Futbol, Juan Carlos Osorio & the equally legendary Goose. At least they are using the tools at their disposal, & not trying to bring in players who have been claimed by other teams (Hi there, Lider Marmol.)
