A report out of Portugal has surfaced stating that Pedro Santos of Sporting Club Braga is no longer with the Portuguese club and intends to move to Major League Soccer and join Columbus Crew SC.
It was reported that Santos has passed all of his medical examinations and is destined for Columbus.
The reported fee for Santos’ services will be approximately $2.4 million.
Santos’ main position is on right wing but he has been known to play in various other roles on the pitch including left winger and striker.
Very fast, can dribble past defenders and is very dangerous approaching the box from wide. Like him and think he is DP level... when fit.— Tiago Estêvão (@TiagoEstv) August 5, 2017
When the 29 year old arrived at Braga, he struggled to see consistent on-field minutes with the first team. Santos was loaned out to FC Astra Giurgiu in Romania in 2013 and Rio Ave F.C. of Portugal in 2014 before settling in fully with the club.
In his career with S.C. Braga, Santos has scored 24 goals in 114 appearances.
Massive Report will provide any more updates on the Santos to Crew SC report as details become available.
