FC Dallas announced earlier today that they acquired Sebastian Lletget from the New England Revolution. The Revolution will receive a total of $600k for the midfielder over the next two years. Dallas will send them 300k this year and the other 300k next year. At the moment Lletget is under contract until the end of 2023.

Lletget is already familiar with Nico Estevez and two of his teammates Paul Arriola and Jesus Ferreira due to his time with the United States National Team. His past relationship with Estevez was a key factor in his decision to come to Dallas, and his connection with Ferreira and Arriola should help him to accumulate more quickly.

He's been a part of the USMNT since 2017. In 33 appearances, he scored 8 goals and recorded 3 assists. (https://www.ussoccer.com/players/l/sebastian-lletget) During his time with the national team, he won two trophies, the 2021 CONCACAF Gold Cup and the 2020 (actually played in 2021 due to Covid19) CONCACAF Nation's League. He won both tournaments alongside Arriola.


The move should be a great one for FC Dallas. Due to the system they use, the midfield has been noticeably thin. Paxton Pomykal, Tsiki Ntsabeleng, and Brandon Servania have been Estevez's three main choices at the position. Lletget will allow Estevez more freedom to rotate the squad and add to the competition in training.
