Here is some news that some may have missed yesterday during all the US-Mexico stuff. Real Salt Lake announced the loan deal of midfielder/forward Nelson Gonzalez from Quilmes (Argentina). The 20-year-old spent his first two professional seasons with Quilmes in Argentina’s second division (Primera Nacional B).

He will be available to make his Major League Soccer debut this Saturday, August 15, when RSL plays host to the Houston Dynamo.

This signing is in addition to a couple other offensive type signings by the club. Earlier this summer they added Pablo Campos from a trade with San Jose and recently signed Rachid El Khalifi. RSL is hoping these three help an offense that is at times too inconsistent for their own good. If this bunch of additions can help this club score on the road (only 5 road goals all season) then it could help them reach the playoffs.

What do you make of RSL’s recent additions? Will they be enough to get this group into the playoffs for a second straight season?
