D.C. United re-signs Emilio




D.C. United re-signed Brazilian forward Luciano Emilio on Wednesday, bringing back the former MLS Most Valuable Player to a team in desperate need of capable finishers in the attacking third.

"Over the past several months, we've been in constant communication with Luciano regarding his playing future and have reached an agreement that provides United a proven MLS goal-scorer at terms that take into consideration both parties' plans for the future," United general manager Dave Kasper said in a press release.

Emilio, who was previously with Brazilian side Rio Branco de Americana, is signed on for a three-month contract that includes an option for him to stay on longer.

The 31-year-old Emilio will be available upon receiving his International Transfer Certificate, and would figure to provide a boost to Curt Onalfo's attacking options. United has been shutout in three of its four matches, and has scored just two goals on the season.

What do you think of the signing? Do you think Emilio can save United's season? Do you see Emilio staying with United long-term, or just for a three-month stint until he's dealt elsewhere?
