'US Havertz' Aaronson signs for RB Salzburg in multi-million dollar transfer

Aaronson will join his new club at the end of the MLS season and will be eligible to play for the Austrian side after the international transfer window reopens in January 2021.

The Union, who have retained a sell-on clause, has received a $6 million transfer fee (£4.6m) for the midfielder, plus up to $3m (£2.3m) in performance bonuses, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

My family had tickets to the inaugural season, so I grew up watching the team from the very beginning and I remember hoping one day to be on that field scoring in front of the home crowd.

Dubbed "U.S. Havertz" by German outlet Bild, the midfielder has provided four goals and four assists in 21 MLS matches this season.

Internationally, Aaronson made his U.S. men's national team debut in February and was set to join the Olympic qualifying roster in March before the outbreak of the coronavirus.

“Brenden Aaronson is considered one of the greatest talents in the MLS, his dynamism and his presence on the field are extraordinary for a 19-year-old,” said Red Bull Salzburg sporting director Christoph Freund.
