Official: D.C. United and Julian Gressel agree to long-term contract

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!”

D.C. United acquires Julian Gressel from Atlanta United

DC United have officially announced that they have completed the trade of TAM (Targeted Allocation Money) for Julian Gressel. Gressel arrives at Audi Field with a wealth of experience in his first couple of years in MLS and was part of the MLS Cup winning side of 2018. This is what DC United have had to say.

D.C. United have acquired midfielder Julian Gressel from Atlanta United FC in exchange for $650,000 in Targeted Allocation Money (TAM) in 2020 and $100,000 in TAM in 2021 with additional compensation owed to Atlanta if incentives based on performance are met.
“We’re excited to bring a player of Julian’s quality and pedigree to the club ahead of the 2020 season,” Dave Kasper, D.C. United General Manager and VP of Soccer Operations, said. “He has impressed throughout his time in MLS and has been a major component to Atlanta’s success in the league since 2017. Last year, he led Atlanta in assists and chances created while also scoring eight goals so we’re looking forward to adding his impressive goal creating ability and eye for goal to our roster in 2020 and beyond.”

A huge signing for DC, adding versatility and a much needed attacking force. Being able to play both in defence and in midfield, I am really looking forward to seeing him link up with Arriola and seeing him pulling on the black and red of DC United.
