The strangest part of this trade for me is how it ties in with the branding aspect of Chivas USA.

Chivas USA specifically only wanted Spanish speaking players which is why they dumped players that didn't fit their management mold like James Riley for almost nothing during the offseason and why they made no secret that Carlos Alvarez was going to be the second pick in the Superdraft.

Agudelo is rare in that he fits their marketing model and is a talented player that people actually want to watch play. What are they going to do with the allocation money from NE? Are they going to find a better fit for their ridiculous management policies or will they drop this angle altogether and once again field the best 11 that they can?

If I were Chivas, I would have rolled the dice that Juan doesn't find an attractive European suitor and returns to the club. Now it just looks like they've completely given up.

His contract isn't up yet. Essentially New England is borrowing Agudelo until his contract runs out. Which is later this year.


For some reason I was thinking after a trade the player renegotiates his contract. I'm getting way too used to the international system.
