Report: Agreement reached on Julian Carranza transfer to Feyenoord

Julian Carranza may not be good to go tomorrow night, after all.

Philadelphia Union head coach Jim Curtin said Thursday the Argentine striker was fit and ready to return to the lineup against Inter Miami after missing his last two games with an ankle injury but a report from Fabrizo Romano Friday puts that into question. Romano reported that a deal to send the forward to the Dutch club is all but signed.

“Personal terms already agreed, club to club deal now in place — working on documents,” Romano wrote on X.

The 24-year-old has been a revelation since he was acquired initially on loan and later on a permanent transfer from Inter Miami in 2022. He’s scored 43 goals and dished 20 assists in 95 appearances in all competitions for the blue and gold.

Though the transfer won’t amount to a huge payday since his contract expires at the end of the year, the move ensures Carranza won’t go on a free at season’s end. It will also, of course, leave a massive hole in the Union attack.

Whatever the transfer amount ends up being, Inter Miami will also receive a small cut as part of the deal that made his move to Chester permanent. The Union paid $500,000 in general allocation money for the acquisition after trading a second round pick to get him on loan ahead of the 2022 season.

Inter Miami paid more than $6 million to acquire Carranza from Banfield in his native Argentina but he ended up logging just 1,286 minutes in 42 appearances across two and a half seasons before he was moved.
