Rapids to sign Argentine prospect Braian Galván, potentially as a young designated player

The Rapids are set to bring in 19-year-old Braian Galván, a highly regarded young prospect.

Galván, a 5-foot-5 left-footed winger, will transfer from Argentine First Division side Club Atlético Colón, which is located in Santa Fe. It’s not yet certain when he’ll join the team. His contract in Denver will be for three years, plus a club option year for 2023.

Galván’s contract is up in his home country when the summer transfer window opens. If the Rapids are to get a deal done for the start of the 2020 MLS season they would need to pay Colón a fee.
