Freddy Adu headed to Union

We interrupt this first day of football to bring you some futbol news. Pretty big news actually.

Freddy Adu is headed back to Major League Soccer, as a member of our hometown Union. The move was first reported by Fox Soccer. The move will re-unite Adu with Peter Nowak, who managed him during his early years in the MLS when he played for D.C. United. The 22-year-old is expected to fill the scoring void left when leading-scorer Carlos Ruiz transferred to Veracruz.

The Union have yet to confirm the Adu signing, but they sent out a press release around 3:20 p.m. Thursday announcing a press conference set for Friday at noon. The release says: “Philadelphia Union to Introduce New Player.”

So, you fill in the blanks. Welcome to Philly, Freddy!
