The Montreal Impact needed help at striker, and help at striker is what they have received.
The Impact signed 35-year-old Italian striker Bernardo Corradi, a veteran of Serie A and someone who brings a wealth of European experience and goals to the Impact. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but reports out of Italy in recent days suggested that Corradi was going to be on a short-term deal that would be revisited in the summer. The Impact did not confirm that in their announcement.
Corradi, a one-time Italian national team player, was most recently with Udinese, and he also spent time at Chievo Verona, Lazio, Manchester City and Valencia, among other teams, throughout his career.
He had joined the Impact on trial at the end of February and appeared in a preseason game at the Disney World Pro Soccer Classic, assisting on a goal against Swedish side BK Hacken. Corradi, who joins Matteo Ferrari as Italians on the Impact, helps fill out a forward line that struggled to muster many chances in the season opener against Vancouver on Saturday.
