Tribal Football is rumoring that defender Rodrigo Brasesco from Racing Club de Montevideo is set to move to DC United on a loan. They are basing this rumor off of a report from the Uruguayan site tenfielddigital.com.uy. Racing Club de Montevideo plays in the Uruguayan first division, having been promoted from the second division in 2008. Rodrigo Brasesco is a 24 year old defender, and seems to play in the central defense (from what I can piece together from various box scores).
If this is true, this can explain why United wasn’t looking to pick up Jimmy Conrad or someone else in the Re-Entry Draft. I’m actually hoping that Brasesco can play as a fullback, because I’m not really looking forward to Devon McTavish starting again. Also, if true, I think that this would indicate that United will likely look to an offensive player, such as Omar Salgado, Will Bruin, or someone else who can hopefully develop into the finisher that they so badly need.
