Lucas Rodriguez - DC United - July 4, 2019


D.C. United are reportedly close to re-signing forward Lucas Rodriguez, per a report from The Washington Post's Steven Goff.

Per the report, there is no word on whether or not Rodriguez, who is primarily a left winger but can play anywhere across the forward line, would return on a loan from Argentina's Estudiantes or on a permanent transfer. He initially joined D.C. on a season long loan from Estudiantes in 2019, after which the club wanted to extend his stay. However, D.C. United were not able to bring him back and he returned to Estudiantes in 2020.

During his one year spell with D.C., Rodriguez, 23, played 33 games and scored six goals. Since rejoining Estudiantes at the start of 2020, he has played 19 matches and scored one goal, and has started all of Estudiantes' matches this year.
