For the third time, Luis Gil
is headed back to MLS on loan from Mexican club Queretaro. He joined the Houston Dynamo after it gave Real Salt Lake, which owns his rights, a natural fourth-round
pick in the 2019 MLS SuperDraft, with future additional considerations.
Gil signed a Generation adidas contract in 2010 and joined Real Salt Lake, where he played for five years and went
to MLS Cup in 2013. He played for the USA at the 2009 Under-17 World Cup under current Dynamo head coach Wilmer Cabrera
and was the star of the 2013 U.S. U-20 World Cup and earned his first
senior cap in 2014.
But after his move to Queretaro, Gil's career stalled. He played just 10 Liga MX games for Queretaro and was loaned to Colorado and Orlando City in 2017. He has not
dressed for Queretaro since returning in January.
“We are happy to bring Luis in because he’s an outstanding player, a U.S. men’s national team caliber player,”
Cabrera said. “He’s young, he has a lot of ability and he’s confident, and now his teammates and our club must help him to feel comfortable and happy to perform and to display the
tools and the game that he has.”
