Club America Find Blanco's Replacement

Former Boca Juniors playmaker Federico Insua arrived in Mexico yesterday to complete his move from relegated German club Borussia Monchengladbach to Mexican side Club America. He is expected to be the like-for-like replacement for Cuauhtemoc Blanco, who is moving on to the Chicago Fire.

The five-time German champions signed 27-year-old Insua from Boca for a club record fee of $5.36M at the beginning of last season on a four-year contract. But the attacking midfielder never settled and scored just twice in 32 games. Today, he put pen to paper and will be officially introduced as an America player at a press conference tomorrow afternoon. He's signed up through June of 2011.
