Revolution Transfers 2015: Juan Agudelo will Reportedly Sign a Contract through 2018

ESPN FC provides confirmation that Juan Agudelo may soon join the Revolution.

Whispers of Juan Agudelo re-joining the New England Revolution got louder on Tuesday as ESPN FC reported that a deal is imminent.

More than confirmation of Monday's news initially conveyed by Goal.com's Ives Galarcep, the ESPN FC article notes that Agudelo's new deal could keep him in New England through 2018. This, of course, would create stability in the striker position, which has been in flux since Taylor Twellman's injury in 2008.

Neither Goal.com nor ESPN FC reported salary numbers for Agudelo, which will be interesting when revealed. The 22-year-old striker, who admitted that not much could keep him from fulfilling his dream of playing in Europe, spoke to Brian O'Connell of NESoccerToday.com in 2013 about contract negotiations.

"I felt like the (Revolution front) office was cooperative on a new deal," Agudelo said soon after signing a pre-contract with Stoke City of the English Premier League in 2013. "But the MLS wasn’t so (cooperative)."

If Agudelo does in fact re-join the Revolution, it will be interesting to see if he signs as a Designated Player.
