BRIAN SCIARETTA - Saturday, December 21, 2013
In a move that was unexpected, Philadelphia Union midfielder Michael Farfan and Los Angeles Galaxy forward Jose Villarreal have joined Cruz Azul of Liga Mx.

Farfan, 25, and Villarreal, 20, have spent their entire respective professional careers in their native United States but both have Mexican passports which facilitated the deals.

Sources close to the deal indicated that the arrangements to bring both players to Mexico are loans which include options to buy. MLS has not issued statements yet on the contracts.

Villarreal played in 23 games for the Galaxy in 2013 and scored two goals. He was also a member of the US U-20 team over the summer that competed at the World Cup.

Farfan began his professional career with the Philadelphia Union after he was drafted with the 24th overall pick of the 2011 MLS Superdraft. In his three seasons in MLS, he has played in 84 MLS games.
