Word out of Argentina has put the Philadelphia Union ahead of other teams seeking the signature of Pablo Perez, if not for the player not wanting to move to them.
According to Federico Ludmer, who initially broke the story of Philadelphia’s targeting of Perez, the Union were once again rebuffed when trying to acquire them.
The Union reportedly tabled a big large enough to win over Newell’s Old Boys, but Perez, by all accounts thus far, has no intention of moving to Philadelphia nor the other MLS team that previously went in for as well . The bid was more than that of Malaga, who play in Spain’s La Liga.
The news came on the heels of the Union allegedly failing to bring in Perez on a loan for the same exact reason.
Perez is considered a playmaking midfielder and is listed by Transfermarkt as a right sided player. He has appeared in 72 regular season games for Old Boys since returning to the club in 2009.
