Montreal Impact add Lucas Ontivero on loan from Galatasaray
The Montreal Impact signed attacking midfielder Lucas Ontivero on loan from Galatasaray on Monday.
Ontivero, 21, joined the Turkish giants two years ago but has spent most of his time out on loan, including stints in Hungary and Slovenia.
"After analyzing our roster during the offseason, we felt we needed to add a dynamic attacking midfielder," Impact technical director Adam Braz said in a statement.
"Lucas fits the profile that we were looking for and we are excited to have him join our team from the start of training camp."
As a teenager, the Argentina native bounced around the youth systems of some of the biggest clubs in Europe, including three years with Real Madrid and stops at Tottenham and AC Milan.
