Soumare departs Philadelphia Union for Chicago Fire
The 27-year old Malian defender has been acquired by the Fire in exchange for their natural second round pick in the 2014 MLS SuperDraft and allocation money.
"We're excited to have Bakary rejoin the Chicago Fire," president of soccer operations Javier Leon said in a statement.
"Bakary is a strong, dependable defender with experience in MLS and abroad. His addition to our roster will help us challenge both in MLS and for the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup. We know that Bakary considers Chicago to be his home and we're happy to welcome him back to the Fire family."
