- Gabriel Badilla, Summer Transfers
Just got word that a deal we’ve been waiting on for a little while now is finally complete. New England has officially added Costa Rican defender Gabriel Badilla to their roster. He will occupy one of the team’s seven available international roster spots. Per MLS and club policies, terms of the deal were not released.
The 24-year old Badilla brings World Cup experience to the Revs’ backline. I wouldn’t be shocked to see him instantly contend for a starting position once he gets his Visa approval.
This deal comes at a good time for New England too. They’ve struggled in the last couple weeks, giving up six goals in two games. Throw Badilla in with the return of Michael Parkhurst and this could very well be one of the best defenses in the league.
