The New York Red Bulls got a close-up look at Mehdi Ballouchy when they beat the Colorado Rapids last weekend. Apparently they liked what they saw.
The Red Bulls have traded forward Macoumba Kandji to the Rapids for Ballouchy on Tuesday.
Ballouchy has registered three goals and five assists for the Rapids this season. Kandji has endured an injury-plagued season for the Red Bulls, managing just one goal this season.
What do you think of the deal? Shocked to see Kandji traded? Think Ballouchy can be the Red Bulls' answer in the playmaker role?
