Official: LA Galaxy sign Benfica winger Yony Gonzalez

LA Galaxy have announced the signing of Benfica winger Yony Gonzalez on an initial loan deal.

Gonzalez will link up with the Galaxy, who have an option to buy, for the remainder of the 2020 MLS season.

The 26-year-old joined Benfica as a free agent from Fluminense in January and then loaned to Corinthians.

He is now moving to the USA with Guillermo Barros Schelotto’s LA Galaxy where he will take an international roster spot.

Schelotto believes the former Colombian under-23 international can bring a lot to his side.

“We’re excited to add Yony to our squad and think he can be a valuable player for us,” said Schelotto. “He is a player in the prime of his career and has a lot of technical ability on the ball.

“We feel that he will give our team a spark on the offensive side.”
