Union Reportedly Targeted Victor Figueroa Of Newell’s Old Boys

Argentina has become the new Colombia for the Philadelphia Union.

The mark of head scout Ricardo Ansaldi was on the club’s failed transfer bid for Pablo Perez, and now it can be seen on a similar attempt for his teammate, Victor Figueroa.

Figueroa, also a midfielder for Newell’s Old Boys, was revealed to have been a target for the Union by his agent today.

It appears that the Union tried to acquire Figueroa during a period in which the 30-year-old was negotiating a new contract with his parent club. In the end, Figueroa re-upped his deal through the summer of 2016 with improved terms.

Since joining Newell’s Old Boys in 2011, Figueroa has played in 64 league games, scoring eight times. Figueroa stands at 5’6″, reminiscent of current Union player Roger Torres, who may be on his way out of Philadelphia.
