After selling Brian Rodríguez to Club América, Major League Soccer side Los Angeles FC have finally confirmed the signing of Cristian Tello on Friday. The 31-year-old winger arrives on a free transfer after his contract with LaLiga side Real Betis expired in July. Tello has signed a contract through 2022 with club options for 2023 and 2024. Tello is not listed as a Designated Player (DP).

"Cristian is a dangerous attacker and a great fit to what we are building at LAFC," LAFC general manager John Thorrington said in a club statement. "He has played for some of the biggest Clubs in the world and has succeeded in high-pressure situations like the Champions League. We are excited to welcome him, his wife, and family to L.A. as we continue the work towards our ultimate goal of winning championships."


A product of Barcelona's La Masia academy, Tello joined Real Betis in the summer of 2017 for €4 million. The winger has managed 24 goals and 20 assists in 172 games for Real Betis across all competitions.
