Trade splits up Farfan twins

MOST COMMENTED

[MLS TRANSACTIONS] Chivas USA added to its contingent of Mexican-American players when it acquired midfielder Gabriel Farfan from the Philadelphia Union for its first 2014 SuperDraft pick and allocation money. The trade splits up MLS's lone twin brother act. Gabriel played with his brother, Michael, for the Union for the last three years.

The Farfans played their club ball at La Jolla Nomads, spent time in residency with the U.S. U-17s and started out together at Cal State Fullerton.

While Gabriel then entered Club America's minor league system, Michael transferred to the University of North Carolina before they were reunited with the Union.

Gabriel started 40 games in his first two seasons but only three in 2013. Michael started 44 games in 2011-12 and eight in 2013.

The deal is Chivas USA's second in the last week. It sent U.S. international Juan Agudelo to the New England Revolution for allocation.
