Bryan Reynolds leaves FC Dallas to join AS Roma

After weeks of negotiations, and before the 2021 Major League Soccer season starts, FC Dallas and AS Roma have reached a deal so that Bryan Reynolds can continue his development in Serie A. He made 29 appearances since signing a homegrown contract with Dallas back in 22 November 2016 and made his debut in MLS on 19 May 2019 in a 1-1 draw against LAFC.

“I love this game so much and I’m excited for my future,” said Reynolds. “I grew up with FC Dallas and wouldn’t be where I am if I didn’t have the opportunity with the club. I’m going to fight and give everything to Roma like I did here. I would like to thank the fans and FC Dallas for their support. I’m just super excited for my future and I’m going to learn Italian as fast as possible.”

Franchise-record fee

Dallas confirmed the news on Monday announcing that the 2020 Team MVP will join three-time Italian champions for a franchise-record fee of 5.75 million euros. Reynolds will join AS Roma immediately on a six-month loan before completing his permanent move ahead of the 2021/22 season.

We couldn’t be happier for Bryan and his family,” said FC Dallas President Dan Hunt. “Bryan is a true testament to the Academy process. From playing on fields in Fort Worth as a child to competing professionally for us in Frisco and now in Italy, he has inspired a generation of North Texas soccer players with the idea of what’s possible through a pathway at FC Dallas.”
