Minnesota United FC midfielder Emanuel Reynoso signed a three-year designated player contract that includes a club option and begins in 2023.
Financial terms were not disclosed by the club on Wednesday for Reynoso, who has recorded team-leading totals in goals (10) and assists (10) in 27 appearances (all starts) this season. The 26-year-old Argentine also was named to the 2022 MLS All-Star Game.
“Well he’s an integral part of everything we are trying to do here. We’ve always said we have one of the best players in the league and for him to commit, which for me are his main years of his career, to the club speaks volumes for what we are trying to do,” Minnesota head coach Adrian Heath said. “But more importantly, he gives us a real integral piece of what we hope will be a real successful future because he will be a huge part of that.
“We’ve got a really good working relationship and I don’t sugarcoat things with him, I let him know when I think things aren’t going right and he responds in the right way. We’re looking forward to having him. I know he’s pleased to be here so let’s go put some nice pieces around him and keep moving up that table.”
Reynoso has 16 goals and 27 assists in 69 appearances (64 starts) with Minnesota United.
“The truth is since the first day I arrived, they treated me very well. I feel like a family here,” Reynoso said. “I’m thankful for the club, the technical staff, and all of my teammates. I’m very happy and content, as well as my family. To be able to extend my contract is good for me, good for my family. We’re very happy here in Minnesota. I’m going to give my best to this lovely club, who gave me everything.”
