How Acquired: Signed with the New England Revolution on Tuesday, August 2, 2011, as the club's first-ever Designated Player.
Caraglio joined the Revolution from Argentine club Rosario Central, where he played from 2007-2011. He played four seasons in Argentina’s Primera Division, before Rosario Central was relegated for the 2010-11 season. In 49 appearances in the top division, Caraglio scored 11 goals. He missed much of the 2009-10 season while rehabilitating a ligament injury in his knee.
“He’s an exciting player,” Revolution head coach Steve Nicol said. “He has a good touch and likes to get forward. We’re looking for Milton to get involved in our goal-scoring, both with him scoring goals and helping get his teammates involved.”
Caraglio garnered interest from Europe, going on an extended trial at West Ham United, then of England’s Premier League, as well as interest from several Serie A teams in Italy. However, he remained with his hometown Rosario Central for the 2010-11 season while it played in Argentina’s second division.
