I knew this would be a busy week in terms of player movement but I think its safe to say it could be a real busy week. Anyways, I just wrote a little article about how the New England Revolution are set to sign their first DP, 22-year old Argentine forward Milton Caraglio.
I can’t say whether or not this is a good pickup or not. Getting a DP striker that has knee problems to play on turf sounds like a bad idea to me (and most of you who’ve already tweeted me the same).
More than likely the DP tag comes from the transfer and now the player salary. That seems to be the new thing with DP signings for teams. Plus, does anyone actually see the Revs paying this guy a top level salary? Even if his salary were high, it would be a discounted rate for a DP since they take a bit off for DP signings halfway through the season.
Still, good for the Revs to make a move seeing how their offense needs any help that it can get. This now leaves the Colorado Rapids and Chivas USA as the only MLS teams to never sign a DP.
