Christian Gomez is, once again, a member of D.C. United.  

The Argentine midfielder was officially acquired today from the Colorado Rapids, along with 23-year old goalkeeper Mike Graczyk, a international roster spot and salary cap considerations. In exchange, United sent Colorado Ivan Guerrero, its second Designated Player roster spot, and a 2010 SuperDraft second round pick. 

During his first stint (2004-07) with the Black-and-Red, Christian helped the team capture three trophies - the 2004 MLS Cup and two Supporters' Shields (2006, 2007).  He also garnered League MVP honors in 2006, was a three-time member of the MLS Best XI (2005, 2006 & 2007) and a three-time All-Star (2005, 2006 & 2007).  He's good at soccer. 

Welcome back, Christian.
