What has been clear for weeks is now official: Salzburg goalkeeper Carlos Coronel is leaving the Mozartstadt team and joining the New York Red Bulls from Major League Soccer. The 24-year-old, who was loaned to Gerhard Struber’s team for the 2021 MLS season, signs a three-year contract with the “Big Apple”, and the Red Bulls have also secured an option for 2025.
The Red Bulls do not provide any information on the transfer modalities, Gerhard Struber recently revealed in the LAOLA1 interview: “It’s a fair story between the clubs and an amount that is customary in the market.” A purchase option for the MLS team was anchored in Coronel’s loan agreement.
“Carlos was an important reason for our success last season and we are thrilled that he is extending his stay here,” said sporting director Kevin Thelwell in a broadcast. “That he was one of the best goalkeepers last season made our decision to keep him easier.”
Struber also expresses himself in the highest tones about the Brazilian. “Carlos is a great talent and I am happy that he will stay with us,” said the Salzburg native. “Not only is he a good personality for our dressing room, but also someone who is a key to building on our success from last season.”
Coronel had a fabulous season that led the Red Bulls into the playoffs. The Brazilian has played 13 games without conceding a goal, the highest in the MLS. The now 24-year-old moved to Red Bull Salzburg from Brazil in 2015.
The now 24-year-old played 67 games for FC Liefering, while the Brazilian was only able to record 11 appearances for the Red Bull Salzburg fighting team.
Salzburg awarded Coronel to the MLS in 2019: In the first half of the year, the goalie played four games for Philadelphia Union, the team that threw the Red Bulls out of the playoffs this year.
