The Union may be close to having half of the Farfans back.
According to a tweet from Delco Times Union beat writer Matthew De George, Michael Farfan is training with the Philadelphia Union today.
As promised, the special guest at training today for the Union: One Michael Farfan cc @KevinKCBS3- Matthew De George (@sportsdoctormd) July 7, 2014
Farfan was cut by Liga MX club Cruz Azul after the end of the 2014 Clausura. Farfan made only one appearance for the Cruz Azul first team, coming on as a sub and scoring the game tying goal against Monarcas Morelia.
As reported in yesterday's edition of Paid Their Dues, twin brother Gabriel signed a contract with Chiapas FC Jaguares of Liga MX.
It will be interesting to see how Farfan would fit in with the Union's current roster, as he would most likely be second on the depth chart at central attacking midfielder behind Vincent Nogueira, who has missed the last two MLS games due to injury. He could conceivably give Danny Cruz a run at the right wing position, however Cruz has been having himself a good season - scoring twice and grabbing an assist in twelve appearances.
