Rumor: Revolution to Sign Bolivian Midfielder


Bolivian midfielder Christhian Machado will sign with the New England Revolution on a two-year loan deal sometime this week, according to multiple reports.

The 27-year-old is heading to the U.S. to undergo a medical before signing with the Revolution, which was first reported by Bolivian TV outlet SuperSport 365. It is unknown if his loan deal includes an option to buy clause.

Machado is under contract with Bolivian club C.D. Jorge Wilstermann, who play in the top division on the Bolivian soccer pyramid: the Liga de Fútbol Profesional Boliviano. He has been loaned out twice before, even spending a season in the U.S. playing for the Fort Lauderdale Strikers in 2012.

Machado also played under current Revolution assistant coach Marcelo Neveleff, who coached at C.D. Jorge Wilstermann. While together at the club, the two won the 2011 Copa Libertadores title.

The Bolivian international has been capped by his home country’s national team once.


Machado is a defensive midfielder, and his acquisition would help fill a deep void that the team has at that position after losing Gershon Koffie and declining Xavier Kouassi’s option. His addition would also provide valuable experience to the club, and based off of the recent success of South American players in the MLS, this signing should pay off.

While the deal has not yet been confirmed by the club, soccer transfer website TransferMarkt lists Machado as a Revolution player.

Machado reportedly decided to come play in the MLS because his parents live in the U.S.
