After the trade D.C. United completed for Julian Gressel, they still needed to agree a new deal with him. After negotiations, that is now official with him signing a deal until 2023 with an option of a fourth year.
“Agreeing to a long-term deal with Julian is a big step for our club as we continue to build a highly competitive roster in MLS. He is a young and extremely talented player who has already achieved a great amount in this league, and we’re excited to lock down his future with D.C. United.Dave Kasper, General Manager & VP of Soccer Operations.
It was also clear to see that Julian Gressel was happy with his new deal too as D.C. United have used allocation money.
“I’m excited to commit my future to the Black-and-Red and look forward to the beginning of a fruitful tenure in the nation’s capital. D.C. United are a historic club in this league and I’m hoping that I can contribute to helping the team push towards bringing the MLS Cup back to the District and adding that fifth star to our kit. I can’t wait to get started and I’m eager to see the fans at Audi Field on Feb. 29 as we kickoff the season against Colorado. Vamos United!”Julian Gressel
