DC United have gone and splashed the cash to acquire Edison Flores for a club record fee. This is yet to be made public but does eclipse the fee paid for Paul Arriola. Edison Flores is normally a left winger but has been playing behind the striker most recently, and it’s reckoned that is where he will primarily play.
After Acosta leaving a hole in that position, this is a great signing as he is proven in Liga MX and on the international stage. Great to see DCU making waves in the transfer market, and hopefully a few more signings means we can look forward to a successful 2020 season.
D.C. United have acquired Peruvian National Team midfielder Edison Flores on permanent transfer from Liga MX (Mexico) side Club Atlético Monarcas Morelia pending receipt of his International Transfer Certificate (ITC) and P1 Visa. Flores will become the second Designated Player on the Black-and-Red roster.
“We are excited to add an international player of Edison’s pedigree to the team ahead of the 2020 season,” Dave Kasper, D.C. United General Manager and VP of Soccer Operations, said. “He is an exciting and dynamic attacking player who creates and scores goals. What has really impressed us is his commitment to the team…he is a versatile and gritty two-way player who plays with a real pulse. Edison is a proven international player with Peru and was a major contributor for them in the 2018 World Cup and in their impressive run to the final in the Copa America. We are looking forward to integrating Edison with the team in preseason in preparation for the first game on Feb. 29.”
