HOW ACQUIRED: Signed from River Plate on July 17, 2013.
One of the most dynamic playmakers in MLS, Díaz overcame chronic injury struggles in the early stages of his FCD career to become a consistent contributor, bagging eight goals and 10 assists in an impressive 2015 campaign. But observers are just as likely to remember his explosive acceleration, dazzling dribbles and defense-splitting though balls; the Argentine HAS earned the nickname “The Little Unicorn” for his ability to conjure up the impossibly beautiful. A classic No. 10, Díaz made his first-team debut for River Plate at the tender age of 17.
