Moreno is adept at reading the game, making quick transitions on both sides of the ball, and should provide United with tactical flexibility with his ability to play both holding and central box-to-box midfield positions. Moreno is arriving at a great age with international experience in both World Cup qualification and the Copa Libertadores.

The midfielder provided the assist for José Manuel Velázquez in the 29th minute of the game to give the Venezuelans a 1-0 lead at Rio Tinto Stadium. Moreno went on to earn five caps for La Vinotinto in 2017 and scored his first goal for his country in a 1-1 draw with Ecuador on June 9. In the 2018 CONMEBOL World Cup qualification campaign, he started and played 90 minutes in the 1-1 draw against Argentina on Sept. 6 and the 0-0 draw with Uruguay on Oct. 5. He also came off the bench as a substitute in the 1-0 win over Paraguay on Oct. 11.

OUTSIDE MLS: In 2012, Moreno made his professional debut for Asociación Civil Deportivo Lara before moving to Zulia FC in 2015 where he scored three goals and recorded three assists in 64 appearances in the top tier of Venezuelan soccer. Moreno helped lead Zulia FC to their first Copa Venezuela victory in club history in 2016 by beating Estudiantes de Caracas 2-0 on aggregate over two legs.
