The New England Revolution are singing signing 20-year-old Brazilian striker Marcos Dias of Vasco da Gama, according to Lucas Pedrosa. Dias has posted some impressive numbers, and will likely have a chance to showcase his skills stateside.
As the off-season continues to progress, the Revs’ first CONCACAF Champions League match looms. There is just three weeks until New England play a meaningful match, and there are still some holes to fill.
It seems that the deal will go through as a free transfer loan with an eventual option to buy. Dias will start with the first team, but could also see minutes for Revolution II, the second team, joining the new MLS minor league this year. He is a shifty and quick young player, which could bring the spark the Revs need.
After losing Tajon Buchanan, the Revolution lack that speed and energy, so if Dias could fight his way into the regular rotation, he could be a massive help to the side. Preseason is already nearing its close, and the Revolution still likely have multiple moves to make, in a very short time.
