In recent news, Juan Fernando Quintero has been linked with MLS club Chicago Fire. Now, this season the Fire have brought in German Star Bastian Schweinsteiger to help rebuild the club, and in recent news has been linked with Polish midfielder Jakub Blaszczykowski and now Colombian midfielder Juan Quintero. Quintero at the age of 24 has made a name for himself in Italy and for the Colombian national team. With his size and technique, Quintero has been compared to Lionel Messi. A Lot of you might have heard or seen him play in FC Porto of even the 2014 world cup, where Quintero scored his first world cup goal against Ivory Coast. With a total of 28 goals in 188 games.


Now, will Quintero be a good fit for Chicago Fire? For his speed and size, yes. Quintero is a very skillful player, he’s quick on his feet. Where would Chicago Fire head coach Pauno most likely place Quintero? On the wing? Attacking midfielder? The Fire is looking for a true winger to place on the left side, which is why the Fire is also chasing Blaszczykowski. With his speed and passing, he would work perfectly on the other side of David Accam.


Now to bring in the 24-year-old might be a little pricey with the Fire looking to spend no more than $7.5 million, Quintero is currently making at least $3.5 million. Orlando City already dropped out of trying to bring the 24-year-old. Quintero has already rejected offers from Club America from LIGA MX and other clubs to see what the US may offer. Quintero looks like he wants to join the club and if this works out the Chicago Fire would be a stronger team and sitting in first place with the season they had many teams will be afraid of what’s to come.
