The Revs found their Buksa replacement and the details are extremely promising. The Revolution finalizing deal to sign Juventus striker Giacomo Vrioni for USD 3.8 million. He tied for the Bundesliga golden boot last season on loan for Tirol. He is an full Albanian national team member who was previous capped for Italy’s youth teams.I haven't been following much the past few weeks, and this was the last I heard of Buksa.
I tuned in last night to find out he was sold last week.
I realize getting $10 million for him is good business and he was going to leave sooner or later, but he is a huge loss to try to deal with in the middle of the season, and I hope they can get a replacement in ASAP.
Meltdown, you say?That's good news in contrast to a three-minute meltdown in Philly last night.
The article indicates that it's player-initiated out of a desire for more playing time, and a chance to pot some goals and earn a spot on the World Cup squad.New England Revolution striker Jozy Altidore is close to joining Liga MX side Puebla on loan through the end of 2022, a source confirmed to The Athletic on Thursday morning.
The news was first reported by Fabrizio Romano. Revs sporting director and head coach Bruce Arena indicated that the deal is close to being completed in a press conference later on Thursday.
I say no. Jozy is done as a high level player. He’s physically broken down and hasn’t showed his previous level in years now.Is there any realistic scenario where Jozy ends up on the squad?
Is this the Revs doing a favor for a guy that served his national team well? It seems like they’d be better served keeping him for depth.
Lletget didn't work out, but I thought it was a reasonable bet.I don't have a link but I saw something about a Lleget to FC Dallas trade, for some TAM or GAM allocation.
I wonder when Omar is going out, given the "give up on national team alums" trend.
