RUMOR: Union Target Midfielder Pablo Perez, Fail In Loan Bid

Quiet in, loud out.

A simple phrase that would aptly describe the Philadelphia Union’s odd and confusing approach to the current offseason. Only a couple of months removed from what was nearly a playoff year, the Union have chosen to remain silent on acquisitions, while most likely shedding seven players from their roster.

Corben Bone has so far remained the solitary addition to the Union, but reports out of Argentina cite an attempt by Philadelphia to replace some of what it has lost in December.

Multiple Argentine sources on Twitter stated today that Pablo Perez, a midfielder with Newell’s Old Boys, was a recent transfer target of the Union.

The Union were said to have discussed a loan with Newell’s for Perez, but they were rebuffed by Perez himself. Ahora Deportes said that Perez did not see Major League Soccer as an enticing opportunity.

Perez played 27 times for Newell’s in 2013, netting five goals and assisting on three more in 2,173 minutes. Transfermarkt, on which Perez is worth over $1.3 million, listed the 28-year-old primarily as right midfielder, but also have him as a possible central or attacking midfielder.
