Chilean midfielder Pablo Aranguiz won’t get a second chance with FC Dallas. The MLS side announced earlier this week that they had reached a transfer agreement for Aranguiz with Club Universidad de Chile.

Aranguiz previously joined Universidad on a one-year loan in late 2019. It proved to be a great move for both the player and the club, as the 23-year-old player already scored four goals and added three assists in just 10 Primera Division games.

Pablo Aranguiz arrived in Dallas in 2018 followed by great expectations, as the club signed him to a Designated Player contract and expected him to be one of the cornerstones of the franchise for the future.

The MLS style of soccer, however, didn’t suit Aranguiz the best as he struggled to make an impact on the pitch. He played 20 games in two years and failed to register a single goal or an assist.

Dallas eventually decided to cut their losses and sent the youngster on loan at this boyhood club Union Espanola and then to Universidad.
