United acquire general allocation money from Whitecaps

United have acquired general allocation money from the Vancouver Whitecaps in exchange for Designated Player Fabián Espíndola.

Espíndola, 31, played in 59 matches (49 starts) for the Black-and-Red after he was selected in the second stage of the 2013 Re-Entry Draft on December 18, 2013, scoring 20 goals and recording 17 assists.

“"Fabi has been a valuable part of our team over the last few seasons,”" Kasper said. "We thank him for his service and wish him the best.”"

The Buenos Aires native posted career highs in goals (11) and assists (9) his first year in Washington en route to being named Team MVP.  Espíndola’'s contributions helped lead the team to a first-place finish in the Eastern Conference. In 2015, the Argentine battled injuries, playing in only 17 matches (15 starts) and recording five goals and seven assists.
