Ex-Revolution forward Juan Agudelo selected by Toronto FC in MLS re-entry draft

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.

New England Revolution re-sign Juan Agudelo to multiyear contract

FOXBORO -- The New England Revolution have re-signed forward Juan Agudelo to a multiyear contract, the club announced Monday. The Revolution's eighth all-time leading goal scorer, Agudelo returns for his sixth season with New England and his ninth overall MLS campaign. 
 
The Barnegat, N.J., native has registered 32 goals and 14 assists across 128 appearances since joining the Revolution in 2013. In club history, the 26-year-old ranks tied for third in goals per 90 minutes (0.39), fifth in scoring percentage (15.6), and seventh in goals per game (0.25). Agudelo claimed the Revolution's Golden Boot in 2016 after scoring seven times despite missing 10 matches due to injury. He has totaled at least seven goals in four of his five campaigns with the Revs. 
 
“Juan has been an integral member of our team over the last five years, and ensuring that he remained here in New England was a priority for us this offseason,” said Revolution general manager Michael Burns. “We believe his best years as a player are still ahead of him, and we look forward to seeing Juan in a Revolution jersey in 2019 and beyond.”
 
“I’m happy to have re-signed with the Revolution after five great seasons and I’m grateful to remain on the team,” Agudelo said.  “I look forward to helping the Revolution and building off of last season. I’m excited to see my teammates next month and prepare for the 2019 season.”
 
For his MLS career, Agudelo has totaled 187 appearances, including 111 starts, with 43 goals and 20 assists. In the MLS Cup Playoffs, the forward owns six appearances -- with five starts -- with one goal and two assists. Prior to joining the Revolution in 2013, he spent three years with the New York Red Bulls from 2011-12, and just under two seasons with Chivas USA (2012-13). New England acquired Agudelo in a trade with Chivas in May 2013. 
 
In 2018 with New England, Agudelo recorded three goals and four assists in 30 appearances, including 13 starts. His four helpers were tied for the third most on the team. He made one additional appearance in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, logging 32 minutes as a substitute against Louisville City FC. 
 
On the international stage, Agudelo has been capped 28 times by the United States Men's National Team, recording three goals and three assists. He most recently featured for the USMNT at the 2017 Concacaf Gold Cup, where he appeared in all three matches of the group stage and helped the team win the tournament. In October 2017, Agudelo was an unused substitute for a pair of 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers. He also participated in the USMNT's 2018 January camp under then-Interim Head Coach Dave Sarachan.
