Sources: Revs GM and Agudelo talk 2014 season, future with club


Two sources with contact to the New England Revolution FO have said that Mike Burns and Juan Agudelo talked yesterday, as originally reported here.

One source said the talks started by Juan Agudelo officially stating he would not be returning to New England for the 2014 season.

"Juan started by sharing that he wouldn't be with the team next season but thanked Mike Burns for everything he did in helping him the past seven months."

Talks switched to a possibility of Agudelo returning sometime in the future.

"No timeline of Juan's return were brought up but Burns and Juan both know that the Revs hold his MLS rights and discussed potential of returning one day. Nothing specific (ie. loans, transfer back to New England) was talked about."

Another source said that Burns and Agudelo's relationship is stronger than ever.

"There's no ill feeling towards Juan from Mike's perspective and Juan sees Mike as someone who helped him out in a time of need. Both parties seem to be happy for one another and that relationship might help out in the future."

More information to come regarding Agudelo's next stop. Recent reports are linking Juan with a move to Spanish side Valencia.
