What happened to Academy player Michael Funes??

While D.C. United has done well with their respective youth teams, what happened to Michael Funes? He had trained with United's first team last year and since then has been called up to the El Salvador U-20 National Team and went to Qualifiers with them, and will be in the U-23 pool for upcoming Olympic qualifiers. Why haven't United looked into a player who has played for so long in the Academy and has National team experience? Looks like he did well training with the first team last year from what it seems like in this article.  He also has been in El Salvador with the League's strongest Club (Isidro Metapan) and from the looks of it he will go back to them in preseason to sign a contract. Why does D.C. United want to let a homegrown player go without even give him a shot in the reserves???  Hope to have some info on him and some opinions on the situation.
