Carlos Valdes On The Verge Of A Loan To San Lorenzo de Almagro

Drew Hallowell

Former Union Captain and MLS All-Star could be loaned to Argentinian Primera División Champions San Lorenzo until July.

MLSSoccer.com confirmed that a six-month loan offer for Union center back Carlos Valdés has been made by Argentine club San Lorenzo de Almagro. There have been tons of different transfer rumors around Valdés since he left the Union to go on loan with Colombia's Independiente de Santa Fe. The move to a team outside MLS was driven strongly by Colombian national team manager José Pekerman, who wants all of his players playing at the highest level they can possibly be at.

San Lorenzo has been having all kinds of success in the last year. They just won the 2013 Argentine Primera División, and it turns out that the Pope is a supporter of the team. The club was founded in 1908 when a priest in Buenos Aires offered some local boys a place to play soccer in exchange for going to church on Sundays.

Valdés has played a grand total of 5803 minutes in 65 games with the Union and recorded three goals. Valdés and Colombia are in Group C for the 2014 World Cup where they will face Greece, Ivory Coast, and Japan. Colombia is expected to advance from the group with some ease. Carlos has always been a fan favorite at this club, and he will be missed.
