Former New England Revolution Forward Juan Agudelo has found a new home. The 27-year-old forward was selected by Toronto FC in the Stage 2 of the 2019 MLS Re-Entry Draft on December 3rd but his stint up north didn’t last very long.
On Saturday Inter Miami CF announced that Agudelo had been acquired from Toronto in exchange for a 2021 MLS SuperDraft third-round pick. Interestingly enough Miami remains without a Head Coach despite the fact that Training Camp is right around the corner.
As for Agudelo, the former New York Red Bull’s HomeGrown striker spent the past six seasons in New England and comes on the heels of a bizarre 2019 season. Agudelo had been sputtering for awhile but a spark was lit under Bruce Arena. The former Chivas USA forward switched in a midfield role and seemingly thrived.
Miami in Agudelo is getting a versatile MLS veteran who has 215 appearances, 132 starts to his name with 46 goals and 22 assists. It was quite clear down the stretch that Agudelo wasn’t going to be sticking around with Arena looking for upgrades on the offensive side of the ball.
To fill Agudelo’s shoes in the midfield the Revolution signed MLS free-agent Kelyn Rowe and then several attacking pieces such as Adam Buksa, the teams third Designated Player.
