U.S. Under-17 national team midfielder Luis Gil has agreed to a deal with MLS. Gil had been drawing interest from a number of high profile clubs, including Arsenal and Real Madrid. He will be allocated in a weighted lottery to be held on Monday.
I think this is a good move. It would have been great to see him go to a big club, but as we’ve seen with a number of other young Americans, it doesn’t always pan out. Hopefully, this will mean more playing time for Gil.
