DC United taking close look at Varela

DC United general manager Dave Kasper has confirmed the club is taking a close look at Spanish midfielder Carlos Varela. The 32-year old has spent his entire career playing in Switzerland and now finds himself on trial with the MLS club and DC are keen to not let this opportunity pass them by.

"He has a lot of experience from Europe and he's an interesting player who became available"," Kasper said. "He can play either side of midfield. We can still add depth out wide and we didn't want to pass on this opportunity to take a close look at him."

Varela most recently played with Neuchatel Xamax and has also had stints with Young Boys, FC Aarau, FC Basel and Servette.
