Minnesota United FC announced Tuesday, March 2 it has signed free-agent forward Juan Agudelo to a one-year contract, with a club option for an additional year.

Agudelo, a 28-year-old native of Colombia who has lived in the U.S. since childhood, spent the 2020 season playing for Inter Miami CF, where he scored three goals in 14 MLS games. Before joining Miami, Agudelo played the bulk of his MLS career with the New England Revolution, producing 35 goals and 16 assists in 156 regular-season appearances over six seasons. He helped guide the club to the playoffs in 2013, 2015 and 2019.

“We think he’s going to be another really valuable squad player for what’s going to be another really hectic year with the condensed program schedule,” United coach Adrian Heath said in a statement. “He can play three or four positions, he can play through the middle, he can play wide right, wide left. Nothing is going to faze him. I think it’s a really good pick up for us.”
