Argentine Leonardo JARA of Boca Juniors to join DC United in MLS


Leonardo JARA of Boca Juniors will continue his career with DC United.

The Argentine will join DC United on a loan deal for a year and a half. Following the end of the loan deal, the club would have the option to buy him for $2 million. There’s been a big number of Argentine talent joining the MLS the past few weeks and the 27 year old is the latest.


  1. Choripan I do not care about Christian Ansaldi’s age but right now he is way better than Tagliafico.Taglafoco plays like he is playing for school tram running here and there without thinking.So Ansaldi will be better for Copa America and after him Angelleri should become LB.If it were for Ansaldi in WC result could have been better for NT but main culprit was Sampoli how idiot is he. worst coach.Taglifico 12+ game no goal and no assist.Not good passer,crosser,tackler and making wrong interception which can cost penalty like against France(but referee wakind so did not happen)

    • I like none of them but there is nobody else than Tagliafico in longer term. Otherwise convert a CB to play as fullback. Thuram, Ramos, Gallas were all natural CB but used as fullback at their beginning. Funes Mori can play this role, as Tagliafico’s backup.

    • Hope they can repeat this efficency in attack. This team has good midfielders but nobody for breaking the lines. In many games they played so static with this possession football.

    • To use him well, Scaloni need to inspire from Setien, Sarri and Emery. Those coaches use 3 men midfield with similar profile, a technical regista, a defensive box to box and a more creative central midfielder. I see a 433 or 4312 with the players we have. To me it’s obvious to go for Paredes Ascacibar and Lo Celso.

  2. On Sudamericano so far few unexpected results. Venezuela with 2 wins. Colombia only 1 point after 2 games. Uruguay lost. The host Chile only 1 point after 2 matches.

    • Venezuela is last world cup runner up. I am only surprised by the loss of uruguay, I thought they were the strongest in this tournment.
      Given the situation with new coach, I think one of top 3 will be an excellent result for argentina and by the time of world cup, batista will get more time with the team and then aim for the trophy.

  3. Watched that Real Sevilla, average for Banega and Vazquez, who committed too many faults, almost like Von Bommel in the past, an old school butcher. Far from the time when he played as 10 with Palermo, elegant with the ball and can make difference with his vision or dribbles. Now I saw him very slow and static, not inspiring in his passing. The position change can’t explain that.

  4. This team will start tomorrow against Paraguay:

    Manuel Roffo, Facundo Mura, Nahuen Pérez, Facundo Medina, Francisco Ortega, Aníbal Moreno, Santiago Sosa, Manuel Insaurralde, Julián Álvarez, Maximiliano Romero y Thiago Almada or Pedro De la Vega.

  5. Franco soldano has moved to Olympiakos for a mere 1 mil. He was valued at 5 mil a year ago when he was in good form. Sadly, he has been poor the past 6 months.
    19 year old Andereggen has moved to Fc Zurich.

  6. Don’t surprise if you see some
    Argentina players play for USA Nt
    In the near future.
    That i the idea behind those Argentina
    Players and coachs going to mls .
