Juan Agudelo has long been considered a young prospect destined to play in Europe’s top flight, and now that destiny is closer to becoming reality after signing a pre-contract with Stoke City to join the English Premier League side in January.
On the latest episode of The SBI Show, we break down Agudelo’s move to Stoke City, and what it could mean for the young striker. In Episode 61, we also take a closer look at the process that could see him leave the New England Revolution early in the event of a summer transfer to Stoke.
Co-host Garrett Cleverly and I also discuss the U.S. Open Cup semifinals, which kick off tonight at Rio Tinto Stadium and Totoya Park. We break down both match-ups, including the highly-anticipated Real Salt Lake-Portland Timbers clash.
Give Episode 61 of The SBI Show a listen after the jump:
