United Picks Up Marcelo Saragosa

Steven Goff reported and DC United has since confirmed the signing of 30-year old MF Marcelo Saragosa. Saragosa has previously played in Brazil, 116 career matches here in MLS for LA, Dallas, and Chivas before spending the last two seasons in the Azerbaijan First Division.

According to GM Dave Kasper, "We are pleased to have concluded a deal to bring Marcelo to DC. He is well-acquainted with our League and brings additional depth to a midfield we feel is already one of the best in the League."

As Goff said, this looks like a depth move, as he is likely to replace DM Perry Kitchen when he's out on U-23 USMNT and Olympic duty in the coming months.

Is this something we should get excited about? He sounds like a solid, experienced player who will add continued depth to the midfield. Does this have any roster implications?
