Another big transfer for MLS! Cincinnati FC complete club-record $10m sale of Brenner to Udinese
- MLS improving in talent development
- Able to cash in with sales to European clubs
- Brenner fee top 10 in MLS history
WHAT HAPPENED? The MLS club has officially sealed its record outgoing transfer, agreeing to send the Brazilian forward to Italy for about $10 million in the summer, with incentives and a sell-on fee that could raise the total significantly higher, according to The Athletic.
Brenner scored 27 goals in 69 MLS matches after joining Cincinnati from Sao Paulo. His new contract at Udinese will run until 2028.
