Orlando City SC signed midfielder Mauricio Pereyra to a two-year contract through 2024 on Wednesday using Targeted Allocation Money.

Pereyra, 32, recorded one goal and 11 assists in 32 MLS matches (31 starts) this past season. He had 12 total assists across all competitions in 2022, eclipsing former City captain Luis Nani’s franchise-best mark of 11 in 2019.

“Mauricio has been our leader both on and off the field since he joined the club and he did a fantastic job as captain for us last year,” Orlando City SC EVP of soccer operations and general manager Luiz Muzzi said. “The example he sets with his professionalism and what he means to our group cannot be overstated. We’re so happy to have Mauricio back with us for the next couple of seasons.”

Pereyra has four goals and 33 assists in 83 career matches (76 starts) for Orlando City SC.
