TRANSFER TRACKER STATUS: Re-signed
The move was completed using Targeted Allocation Money (TAM), opening a Designated Player spot for the Lions to use this offseason. Their remaining DPs are striker Ercan Kara and winger Facundo Torres, who is at the World Cup with Uruguay.
“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,” Luiz Muzzi, Orlando’s EVP of soccer operations and general manager, said in a release.
“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.”
Since signing with Orlando late in 2019, Pereyra has four goals and 33 assists in 83 matches. He’s helped them qualify for the Audi MLS Cup Playoffs for three years running (2020-22) since arriving from Russian Premier League side FC Krasnodar.
