The offseason for the Red Bulls continues to go on a straight and narrow path as the club has just announced that the transfer for Michael Amir Murillo has been completed with Panamanian side San Francisco FC.

Originally brought over by the Red Bulls on loan the right fullback/Centerback who played in 17 matches and scored twice which included the equalizer down in our Nations Capital in the last match at RFK Stadium.

"We are pleased to add Amir on a permanent basis," said Sporting Director Denis Hamlett. "He showed well and has made progress as a player during his time here. He is building on the positive qualities we saw when we were scouting him, and we look forward to him contributing to our success moving forward."

Depending on what happens next summer we all know that Michael Murillo and his national team teammate Fidel Escobar could be called up to the World Cup next summer in Russia if both get that opportunity.

But for now it looks like the backline is starting to solidify for the start of the 2018 season and the hope is that he can help out the club when they start the season in International Club Competition for the CONCACAF Champions League.
