Atlanta United Technical Director Carlos Bocanegra stated on Fox Sports South’s Atlanta United Live pregame show that after signing Eric Remedi from Banfield in Argentina, Atlanta United will not look to add any more pieces in the summer transfer window.

In the interview, conducted by Jillian Sakovitz and Dan Gargan, Bocanegra was asked by Gargan if Atlanta United fans should be excited to see another signing potentially come in to don the five stripes.

“No, this will be our last piece for the summer,” replied Bocanegra.

It’s a simple answer to a simple question, but it speaks volumes to what fans can expect from the team in the transfer window that opens July 10. If the team was planning to sell any of its star players as has been rumored (specifically Miguel Almiron), it’s fair to reason that Bocanegra would not have been so definitive with his answer. So often, we hear front office executives from teams in leagues and sports around the world leave these questions open ended. Bocanegra’s blunt response, though, makes me tend to believe him.
