Hugo Cuypers is going to take a new step in his career. And in this way he will immediately become one of the absolute top transfers in the MLS, while Ghent can once again add millions. But there is one more strict condition.
Hugo Cuypers will normally leave the Jupiler Pro League. He can go to the MLS for around thirteen million euros to play for Chicago Fire. This would immediately make him the fourth most expensive transfer to the USA.
At first Cuypers was not entirely impressed with the deal and preferred to move to another competition, but in the meantime the 27-year-old attacker from Ghent has become convinced and so he is going to make the switch.
Condition: first find a replacement yourself
The MLS season doesn’t start until February 25, so he can still fully settle in. The Buffaloes, for their part, are doing a third million-dollar deal after Fofana and Orban, which means they have already acquired a total of more than 50 million euros in income.
According to Ghent The last news still attach a firm condition to the deal. As long as no replacement is found on Thursday, Cuypers will not be allowed to leave permanently. Deals with Nilsson and Biron have not been completed (so far).
