D.C. United have just announced the signing of Columbus Crew forward Miguel Berry in a trade that will see $225k GAM head in the other direction. There is a potential $100k GAM extra depending on whether Berry hits certain performance related criteria. In addition to this, Columbus will retain a portion of any future trade fee.
Berry made his debut for Columbus last season and had a good return, scoring 8 times in 18 appearances (9 from the bench) and recording 2 assists. Despite hailing from Barcelona, Spain, he doesn’t take up an international slot. A 6’3 forward who will hopefully partner up well with Greek international Taxi Fountas. The Rooney Rebuild continues
Miguel has shown his talent and his ability to be a top finisher in this league over the past two seasons and we are excited to see him continue to develop under Wayne. His size, athleticism and goal-scoring ability will be a great addition to the roster as we head into a critical point in the season. We welcome him to the Club and are looking forward to integrating him with the roster.Lucy Rushton, D.C. United General Manager
