Atlanta United agrees MLS-record deal for Ezequiel Barco

Tata Martino is set to land a long-term target in Ezequiel Barco, with the Argentinian teenager from Independiente said to cost a record transfer fee of $15 million for a Major League Soccer franchise.

An MLS source told ESPN FC's Jeff Carlisle that a deal was "close" to being finalized, and the Argentine club confirmed Barco's exit in a farewell tweet.

"You arrived as a kid".

Bandai Namco announces Dark Souls: Remastered for all major platforms
While we'll take any excuse to replay Dark Souls for the umpteenth time, we're not entirely sure why this remaster exists. In a Japanese retailer listing, it was first leaked that Dark Souls will get a remaster for the PS4.

Citing sources, ESPN reported Independiente agreed to sell Barco for $15 million - which would shatter the record for an MLS transfer fee - plus 30 percent of any future transfer before December 2019, or 10 percent if Atlanta United sells him after that. You were formed in the club and you leave as a champion.

Barco has impressed with Argentine power Independiente since joining the first team as a 17-year-old in 2016, and helped his club win the Copa Sudamericana in 2017 by scoring a penalty in the final against Flamengo.

According to Opta, since his debut, no Independiente player has assisted more goals or created more chances in league than Barco (59, including five assists). Everything can happen, but glory is eternal. "Thanks and success, Ezequiel!" The deal is said to be the second largest in Independiente history after they sold Sergio Aguero to Atletico Madrid in 2006.
