Making Moves: Union Bring In Alejandro Bedoya And Charlie Davies
The Philadelphia Union just made some major moves on the final day of the MLS Transfer window. The Union signed U.S. National Team midfielder Alejandro Bedoya as a designated player. The team paid a $1 million transfer fee and Bedoya will receive a $1 million annual salary. The Union made a trade with the Chicago Fire to acquire that No. 1 allocation spot, which they used to get Bedora. Philadelphia sent Chicago general allocation money, targeted allocation money, the club's natural first-round pick in the 2017 MLS draft, and the discovery priority on a player to be named. The Union also made a trade with the New England Revolution, picking up striker and former U.S. National teamer Charlie Davis. Due to both acquisitions, Philadelphia shipped away Sebastian Le Toux to the Colorado Rapids to free up money.
