Report: Minnesota United’s Angelo Rodriguez set for move to Deportivo Cali


After a club-record season for Minnesota United in 2019, the Loons are ringing in changes for 2020. And another Designated Player might be on his way out.

According to Colombian radio station El Corrillo de Mao and Pioneer Press’ Andy Greder, Minnesota have agreed a deal to loan forward Angelo Rodriguez to Deportivo Cali. The deal includes an option to purchase.

Rodriguez, 30, joined Minnesota during the 2018 season as a DP after firing in goals for Deportes Tolima in Colombia. It never quite worked out in MLS for Rodriguez, with nine goals and three assists across 39 MLS appearances.

Earlier this offseason, the club traded their first-ever DP Darwin Quintero to the Houston Dynamo and were unable to bring back Vito Mannone, 2019 MLS Goalkeeper of the Year. They’ve added Tyler Miller, Jacori Hayes and others this offseason, though are linked with a number of key additions. 

Minnesota are rumored to be chasing Boca Juniors midfielder Emanuel Reynoso and Paraguayan forward Luis Amarilla.
