Ricardo Centurion: A Likely Option for LA Galaxy

by Dusan Randjelovic

Ricardo Centurion is linked with a move to MLS side LA Galaxy. Earlier this week the 26-year old Argentinian canceled his loan with Mexican team Atletico San Luis.

Centurion said that Galaxy head coach and compatriot Guillermo Barros Schelotto approached him, but at the moment it remains only one of the possibilities.

Who is Ricardo Centurion?

The Argentinian winger started his career in his hometown club Racing, where he debuted in 2012. He managed to grab the attention of many European teams very fast and in September 2013, a loan move to Genoa was agreed. And since the Italians decided not to activate his buyout clause, Brazilian Sao Paolo landed Centurion for around $4.6 million.

He spent the 2016/17 campaign back in Argentine, on loan at Boca Juniors. Centurion would later be brought back to Genoa before re-joining childhood club Racing this summer. He has two Argentine Primera titles under his belt and was selected for the 35-man preliminary squad for the 2018 World Cup, though he didn’t make the cut.

Ricardo Centurion has also featured in the Argentine U20 team with five games and two goals.

LA Galaxy already has a strong Argentinian presence within their squad with the likes of Sebastian Lletget and young Emil Cuello, alongside Cristian Pavon and Favio Alvarez.
