MLS side Chivas USA have announced on their official website that they have signed midfielder Mauro Rosales from Seattle Sounders.
The Argentine has been acquired in exchange for the rights on forward Tristan Bowen and the club’s No. 2 allocation ranking.
Mauro Rosales leaves Seattle after spending last three years there, having joined the club from River Plate in the winter of 2011.
The 32-year-old has largely impressed at the start of his MLS career, managing 12 goals and 34 assists in 90 league appearances for Seattle Sounders.
Rosales began his professional career at Newell’s Old Boys, and he made a total of 119 league appearances, scoring 30 goals, before joining Ajax in the summer of 2004.
The winger didn’t quite manage to prove his worth in Dutch Eredivisie, scoring mere 6 goals in 63 league appearances, and decided to sign for River Plate in January 2007.
Four years later he moved to the MLS, and quickly developed into one of league’s best players.
