Update (Jan. 17): Paul Tenorio has updated his report, saying Allan Cruz will not wait until after Herediano exits the CCL to join FC Cincinnati but will instead join for the expansion team's preseason.
TRANSFER TRACKER STATUS: Report
After being linked to five unnamed MLS sides in November, it looks like the future of Costa Rica international central midfielder Allan Cruz will soon be settled.
According to The Athletic's Paul Tenorio, FC Cincinnati are set to sign the "Tico Kante" once Herediano's Concacaf Champions League run ends. Herediano face Atlanta United in the Round of 16, with the first leg being played on February 21.
I can confirm this report out of Costa Rica. Allan Cruz set to sign with #FCCincy. As I understand it, Herediano wants to keep Cruz through CONCACAF Champions League. Would join FCC after. Is set for a medical this week. https://t.co/5f1A3VOrlu— Paul Tenorio (@PaulTenorio) January 14, 2019
Cruz, who will turn 23 ahead of the 2019 MLS season, has made 76 appearances for Herediano after joining in 2017, helping the club qualify for the 2019 CCL. He has made six appearances for the Costa Rican national team.
