It appears that Diego Fagundez’s time with the New England Revolution has come to an end. It’s safe to say that it’s a sad day to be a Revs fan.

There has been plenty of rumors surrounding Fagundez and his status in New England. A source told The Bent Musket that Fagundez has received offers from Liga MX, La Liga, as well as other MLS clubs.

Now that departure seems guaranteed. Fagundez took to Instagram and wrote a farewell letter to Revolution fans that will likely have readers wondering if their allergies are acting up.

The record that Fagundez mentioned is the club record for most regular season appearances that was held by Sharlie Joseph. Now it looks like Fagundez will be stuck tied at the top with Joseph.

If he is leaving, his last game will have been all the way in October when he played 63 minutes against the New York Red Bulls.

After that Fagundez spent some time as an unused sub and then in the beginning of the MLS Cup Playoffs, Fagundez failed to crack the matchday 18. That was until the Eastern Conference Finals when Bruce Arena finally decided to put the midfielder on New England’s bench. Still, Fagundez failed to make it onto the field.

Fagundez will be remembered for all the firsts he had in New England. He was the first Homegrown player to be signed from the Revs Academy and went on to score over 50 goals and 45 assists for the club.

The academy product also became the youngest player in MLS history to score 50 goals as well as the youngest player to make 200 career appearances.

Imagining Fagundez on a different team will be difficult for many fans, but one thing is for sure, he should be remembered for all the great things that he has done for the club.
