Juan Agudelo’s European move back on? Striker drops then deletes Twitter hint

Stand by, everyone.  Juan Agudelo may indeed be heading back to Europe.

With his tweet tonight of “Bout to get back on my grind real soon. #newteam #Europe” all of a sudden speculation flies about what exactly is going to happen in Agudelo’s near future.

The 21-year-old’s move to Stoke City this winter was supposedly nixed by a failed appeal for a work permit, but there’s now a possibility that’s back on.

The #newteam is quite ambiguous as is #Europe, so there’s also the possibility a new move has come to pass, either in England or beyond.

Many USMNT fans will be quite happy with the potential news.  Agudelo had successful spurts with the New England Revolution, ending with seven goals after a midseason move from Chivas USA, but overall his last few MLS seasons have been underwhelming, and a change of scenery is in order.

The rejection of Agudelo’s work permit came as a shock to many, including those in charge at Stoke City, so if he is to make his way to the Britannia, it will be a big boost to Mark Hughes’ squad.

    Agudelo should try to excel in MLS which he’s not done so yet. At the way he’s doing thinga, he might just end up becoming an “Adu”ing around other leagues.

    Great to see young talent learn more about other styles of play and grow as a person by getting out of the comfort zone. Hope he finds a place to show his talent and hopefully grow with USMNT also.
