Brian Rodríguez joins Club América - LAFC equal record transfer fee

Liga MX giants Club América have signed Uruguayan winger Brian Rodríguez from Los Angeles FC. According to South American transfer expert César Luis Merlo LAFC received $6 million and 20% of any future transfer fee. The deal, therefore, would be in the same category as what the Major League Soccer club received for Diego Rossi from Fenerbahçe earlier this summer (overview). 


Market Value
B. Rodríguez Left Winger
$4.40m

"Brian has been an important contributor to our success since his arrival in 2019," LAFC general manager John Thorrington said in a club statement. "He is an exciting player who is capable of special things, which we witnessed many times. We wish him all the best in this opportunity with Club América."


Rodríguez was originally acquired for a club record $11.5 million from Peñarol, and while there were signs of his talent at times, the winger never completely justified his price tag. A loan move to Spanish side UD Almería also ended in disappointment, and the player's market value has since collapsed from an impressive $13.2 million to just $5.5 million.
