Minnesota United signs Emanuel Reynoso from Boca Juniors

Tuesday, Minnesota United announced it has signed attacking midfielder Emanuel Reynoso.

The club signed the 24-year-old via transfer from Boca Juniors of the Argentine Superliga to a designated player contract.

According to Minnesota United, Reynoso will occupy an international spot on the team’s roster.

Reynoso joins Minnesota United after spending his entire career playing in Argentina. He began his professional career with his hometown team Club Atletico Talleres in Cordoba, according to Minnesota United.

"It’s been a long, drawn-out process but we’re finally glad we’ve got it over the line. We feel as though we’ve got one of the best players in the league," MNUFC Head Coach Adrian Heath said in a statement. "This is a guy we’ve been following now for maybe a year or so. To finally get him in here is going to be a huge relief for me, a huge relief for (Reynoso) because I know it’s something he’s wanted. He’s had other opportunities elsewhere but he stuck to his principles. He’s always wanted to come here. We’re looking forward to welcoming him in to market and I’m looking forward to see what he can do with this group of players because it’s another huge piece for us moving forward. A great addition to the squad."

"I like the league a lot because it’s growing every day," Reynoso said in a statement. "When I found out about the club’s interest, I started to do some research on the club and the organization as a whole, and I didn’t doubt that I would like the city and the club very much. Once I got here and got an up close look at the team, I had no doubt this was a great league. My hope is to connect with the team quickly, place my little grain of sand to keep this team moving forward and together we’ll accomplish great things for this organization."
