Arnold Peralta Linked to D.C. United?


Another day, another Honduran youth international linked with D.C. United. Last week, we told you that Wilmer Crisanto said that D.C. United was interested in him, which has since been denied by Dave Kasper. This week, however, Honduran U-23 attacking midfielder Arnold Peralta has been linked to United. Peralta currently plays for C.D.S. Vida in Honduras, started Honduras' semifinal match in Olympic qualifying against El Salvador, and came into the final against Mexico in the 76th minute.

This rumor, however, has more specifics and is more than just a player saying that someone is interested in him. Apparently his club coach, Armando Carias, has gone on Honduran radio saying that the deal is imminent and is a seven month loan with a buy option. This would make the deal for the rest of the year, sneaking it in just before the closure of the MLS transfer window.

If true, this seems to me to be an extended trial; I would doubt that, with all of D.C. United's depth, Peralta would get much time on the field, especially since he would also be gone for the Olympics this summer. There have been plenty of young Hondurans linked with United over the past few years, but none of them ever seem to end up signing. Will Peralta buck the trend?
