Official: Union Sign Argentine Midfielder Cristian “Chaco” Maidana

The Philadelphia Union captured their second signing of the offseason, as Cristian Maidana was officially acquired by the club today.

Maidana, 26, will be able to join up with the Union once his P-1 Visa is received. Philadelphia already possesses his International Transfer Certificate.

Though terms of the deal were not disclosed by the Union or MLS because of long standing policies, Kessler Reports has learned that Maidana signed for two years with an option for a third season.

The source could not reveal the salary terms prior to the publishing of this article. Philadelphia stated in the team’s press release that Maidana would be a Designated Player.

The midfielder last played for Argentinos Juniors before his contract with the club ran out this month. He has also played previously for Spartak Moscow, Atlante, Rangers (Chile) and Recreativo (Spain).

Kessler Reports will have a profile of Maidana up tonight.
