The 19-year old midfielder, who was part of Atletico Madrid’s youth academy between 2007 and 2009, joins the Impact from Primera A outfit Argentinos Juniors.

"He is a young player that has a lot of potential," said Impact sporting director Nick De Santis.

"We have been following him for over six months and I also had the chance to see him play in Argentina. He is a technically gifted player with a lot of raw talent.
