CHAD WINGER - Thursday, August 11, 2011
Freddy Adu's sojourn in Europe is coming to an end as the midfielder will join MLS' Philadelphia Union on Friday.
On Wednesday, the same day Adu was omitted from the US-Mexico roster in the same city, the well-traveled Adu was reportedly near a deal with CD Chivas. However, the 22-year old will be linking up with Peter Nowak in Pennsylvania instead.
When contacted by YA, Philly Manager of Communications Aimee Cicero declined comment, however a press release from the team has announced a scheduled 1:00 pm presentation of an unnamed player.
O Jogo, a sports daily in Portugal has already reported the deal via a newsflash on their website.
Adu, who moved to Benfica in 2007, bounced around the continent with loan stints at Monaco, Belenenses, Aris Saloniki and Rizespor with varying degrees of success.
