GSH's for 7/5.. Let The Silly Season Begin. Crew After Jhon Murillo

Gaven, Schelotto, Hejduk: Three Crew SC-related social media topics of interest for today.

Crew SC after Benfica Venezuelan Jhon Murillo

After RM Jhon Murillo

According to Portuguese reports were after Jhon Murillo.

Which is good considering he plays the one position that needs to be improved in midfield.

Kind of surprised were not signing another LM to place behind Meram and Manneh. Would be amusing. 😅

Murillo has never played for Benfica; yet as a 21 year old has 54 appearances and 8 goals in the same division as Benfica in the Portuguese Primera on loan with Tondela.

He has 59 appearances and 19 goals before that in the Venezuelan First Division. 

Morillo in a game for Venzuelan Senior National Team earlier this year:

And with Tondela:

He looks quick as hell and a handful. I would approve.

We would have to open up an international slot though.

Francis may be at end of Crew days..

Francis has a green card so wouldn't resolve above.
If you want to believe MLSTransfers. 😐

I would be okay with it mainly because I like Waylon Francis.

Don't think it helps us out, but does it hurt us since he plays about 25% of our games now at left back?

A move would help him out though.

He was on the roster in a World Cup at the start of his Columbus Crew career. Now he is lucky to see a game out of four for us.

Back in the Gamba hunt too?

Probably just as a backup if Murillo doesn't happen.
