Former New England Revolution forward Juan Agudelo was selected by Toronto FC in stage two of the MLS re-entry draft Tuesday afternoon.
The 27-year-old's option for the 2020 season had been declined by the Revolution last month, making him eligible to be picked up by another club. Toronto now owns Agudelo's rights, and it's to be determined if he'll actually play for the team next season. If he does, he'll join the very talented Jozy Altidore and could combine for a nice one-two punch up front for Toronto.
The striker has 46 goals and 22 assists in 215 MLS regular-season appearances. He tallied three goals on 37 shots last season with the Revolution. He scored a career-high eight goals with New England in 2017.
He's being lauded for his hard work, determination, and sense of humor by New England fans across social media.
Agudelo was signed by the New York Red Bulls in 2010 to a homegrown player contract and remained with the club until 2012 before moving on to Chivas USA. He had been with the Revs since 2013.
On top of his MLS career, he's made 28 appearances for the US National Team.
