Argentina man Nicolas GAITAN joins MLS club Chicago Fire, leaves China


Nicolas GAITAN will be joining MLS club Chicago Fire.

A statement from the club’s official website stated that the Argentine has left Dalian Yifang in China after joining them in 2018 to play in the MLS. Scoring two goals and having 7 assists in 28 matches with the Chinese club, the 31 year old would play alongside German World Cup winner Bastian SCHWEINSTEIGER.

Chicago Fire play Los Angeles Galaxy on March 2 and if part of the squad, it would mean his first match would be against Guillermo BARROS SCHELOTTO’s team.


  1. One of Our week point is defensive midfield role. Paredes, lo celso, Banega are super in central midfield role, but they are not defensively solid. Our option is Battaglia(injured not classy), ascacibar (his improvement is very less), Casceres ( passing ability good but inexperienced ).And N.dominguez,Palacios(our future) are Box to Box.

    In Copa 2019.. we need a solid defensive Midfielder(whos Passing ability are good and defensively solid).I think Gaston giminez,Guido pizzaro,Casceres,ivan marcone,guido rodriguez,(any one) can be option for copa 2019. Scaloni should find the best one in next 4 matches.

  2. Nico was such a great potential. He had great pace and skill, but of course, like many others he went to China just for money. He might as well retire now, there is no coming back from this.

  3. As I have always said, when Barca play in 442, it’ll be quite hard to beat them because our Messi will be very comfortable with. Last night he didn’t play at his best level but enough to make the difference for his team. Dembele on the left and a hardworking right midfielder next to him. It’s the best formula. Which also means you gotta sacrifice the very talented Arthur because you gotta put a more another defensive 8 next to Busquets. Lo Celso has similar profile, so I don’t know how to fit him in if Scaloni plays 442.

    • Arthur was not sacrificed. He was injured. However RM never learn that Man marking Messi does not work. Mourinho did, Ancelloti did, Benetiez did, Zidane did and now scolari did. Barca are in real trouble once Messi retire as it creat fear on opponent more than any one else in the history of football. Messi dribble, create, score, pass, dictate. So it is very hard to control him and they tried everything.
