Summer is heating up and in the global soccer world, that means transfer windows are open and transfer rumors abound. Over the summer, this weekly column will round up all the incoming and outgoing transfers and rumors involving FC Dallas.
OFFICIAL: Pablo Aránguiz to Unión Española
— FC Dallas (@FCDallas) July 29, 2019
The Pablo Aránguiz saga has come to a conclusion with FC Dallas sending the wantaway young attacking midfielder back to Chile on loan on July 29th. Aránguiz will rejoin his former club Unión Española for the remainder of the 2019 season. Aránguiz had fallen out of the lineup completely in recent weeks, spending time playing and training with North Texas SC instead of the first team.
It seems incredibly unlikely that Aránguiz will ever make another appearance for FC Dallas, having made 21 appearances and recording 0 goals and 0 assists. FC Dallas will hope that the loan will become permanent following the season or that Aránguiz’s performances and form can improve back in his home country and Dallas can sell him on elsewhere.

Much like the previous roundup post, no specific rumors about any inbound players this week, but with the MLS summer transfer window coming to a close on August 7th, time is running short for Dallas to bring in any new players. Buzz Carrick from 3rd Degree has published an interesting interview with manager Luchi Gonzalez regarding the end of the transfer window and the possibility of bringing in one more player before the window closes. Gonzalez states that if someone is brought in it will be a “potential starter” as opposed to a young player to develop for the future.
He also says that any potential depth signings would come from North Texas SC, with the club not being limited by the transfer window when making signings from within their own organization. With less than a week left to bring in a player from outside the organization, Dallas will need to pull things together quickly if fans are going to welcome a new player to Toyota Stadium this season.
Will Pablo Aranguiz make another appearance for FC Dallas? Did the club make the right move in loaning him out for the rest of the season? Do you think that Dallas will make another move to bring in a starting quality player before the transfer window ends? Sound off in the comments below!
