Ranging from new players to front office and technical staff changes, it is no surprise that the Chicago Fire are going to be busy during the off-season.
Back in October, the club announced the signing of former Real Madrid midfielder Alvaro Medran.
Only being 25 years old, Medran joins the Fire with loads of experience. At the age of 17, he joined Real Madrid’s youth academy and eventually made some appearances for the senior team. Medran also has UEFA Champions League experience with Real Madrid.
On Dec. 9th, 2014, he came on as a sub for Gareth Bale in the team’s group stage match against Ludogorets Razgrad and capped off the match with a goal.
Following his career at Real Madrid, Medran went on to play for Getafe, Alaves, Rayo Vallecano, and Valencia, as well as make some appearances for the U19 and U21 Spain national team.
Medran’s primary position is central midfield, where he likes to get up the field and score goals as well as contribute to the defensive end of the field. He brings a lot of much-needed versatility to the squad. Medran should be an excellent signing for the club and is looking to prove his worth in the United States.
Catch Medran and the rest of the squad on March 21st, 2020 as they kick off a new era in Chicago Fire soccer history as they take on Atlanta United in the Soldier Field home opener.
