Report: Union After Marcin "Wasyl" Wasilewski, Polish Defender

Alex Grimm

The Polish international is being courted by the Fire and Union, apparently.

After a 3-0 rout of the New York Red Bulls, the Philadelphia Union clearly were thinking that they needed another right back, or center back, at least according to a report out of Poland.

Futbolnews.pl reported that the Union and the Chicago Fire have shown interest in acquiring the defender. Wasilewski was recently allowed to leave his former club, Belgian's Anderlecht, on a free after his contract expired.

"He's got tons of CB experience," PhiladelphiaUnion.com's Kevin Kinkead said, on Twitter, to the Brotherly Game. "Played CB at Euro 2012."

Wikipedia has been updated to say that Wasilewski has signed with Israeli club Maccabi Tel Aviv, but according to Futbolnews, Wasilewski is still without a team at the moment. The Polish soccer outlet pointed out that Wasilewski would be due to make more in Major League Soccer than he would if he returned to Poland, where Warsaw is intrigued by his possible addition.

Wasilewski has represented Poland 60 times at the senior international level since 2002 and played for Anderlecht from 2007-2013, including in the Champions League. His senior status is a point of contention for a move to America, according to Futbolnews, because of questions regarding his right to a spot with the national team if he plays in MLS.
