Revs acquire 20-year-old Juan Agudelo

In the final year of his MLS contract, US striker Juan Agudelo is headed back to the east coast.

Almost a year to the date when Agudelo was sent from New York to LA, The New England Revolution have acquired the youngster from Chivas USA, his agent Ron Waxman has confirmed via Twitter.

This makes sense for both sides, with Chivas headed in a different direction and the Revs owners of just 4 goals in 8 matches this season.  Agudelo himself has 2 goals in 6 MLS appearances this year.

Chivas will receive allocation money in return for the player.

Revs GM Michael Burns said in a statement, “We’re very pleased we were able to complete this deal with Chivas USA. While Juan is a young player with tremendous potential, he also already has a lot of experience both inside our league and internationally with the US national team. We believe Juan will improve our attack and make us a better team.”

Agudelo has been capped 17 times by the United States, although his dip in form over the last year or so means he hasn’t seen the field for the international squad since January.

According to Jeff Lemieux, staff writer for the Revolution, Agudelo has a bit of a hamstring injury and is unexpected to be ready for their next match Wednesday or the following one Saturday.
