The Philadelphia Union’s Freddy Adu saga could finally come to an end this week. The Union reportedly have a deal in place to send Adu to Brazil in return for World Cup-winning midfielder Kleberson, this according to Soccer By Ives and other reports out of Brazil.
Ives writes that the two players are in similar situations with their current clubs and the change of scenery a transfer would bring them could be best for everyone.
According to reports in Brazil, Bahia’s situation with Kleberson is
similar to Adu’s situation with the Union. Both are highly-paid
midfielders who their current teams want to unload, and by swapping each
other’s unwanted player, it will mean clearing their books of high
salaries that much sooner.
If the deal happens, it would be the latest positive step for a young
Union side currently riding an impressive and somewhat surprising
two-match winning streak. The arrival of Kleberson would create more
competition for central midfield playing time, and would also likely
mean Amobi Okugo will be staying at centerback for the rest of the
We know keeping Okugo at centerback would make one person unhappy.
Nothing is official yet, but Adu is reportedly flying to Brazil on Tuesday to finalize things. Check out Ives’ full report for much more. As I’ve been saying for years, the Union can never have enough Brazilians with one name.
