Roughly 17 months after departing the New England Revolution in pursuit of a European career, forward Juan Agudelo is reportedly closing in on a return to the reigning Eastern Conference champions.
Goal USA reported Monday that the 22-year-old striker is on the verge of returning to the Revs on a free transfer after turning down an offer from Germany’s 1860 Munich.
Agudelo, who left the Revs in August of 2013, originally moved to England’s Stoke City on a free transfer, but was loaned to FC Utrecht following the denial of his work permit. Following his stint with Utrecht, Agudelo became a free agent after ending his contract with Stoke following a second work permit issue.
Agudelo scored seven goals in 14 games for the Revs in 2013. Prior to joining the Revs, he featured for the New York Red Bulls and Chivas USA.
What do you thing of the Agudelo news? How will Agudelo fit in with the Revs? What do you expect from the forward in 2015?
