    The 18-year-old Paraguayan officially became an Atlanta United 2 player on July 18, having signed with Atlanta United’s USL affiliate team due to first team roster restrictions. The club said Lopez will permanently join Atlanta United’s first team in January of 2021, though López revealed in the interview that he could feature for the first team once the MLS is Back tournament is concluded and the 2020 season resumes in home markets. According to Steven Goff of the Washington Post, that resumption could happen as soon as the Aug. 21-23 weekend.

    Thanks to The Athletic’s Felipe Cardenas, you can read López’s understanding of the transfer in English.

    López also spoke highly of Píty Martinez, saying “I always used to watch him play in River and he seems to be a tremendous player.”

    López could play a significant role in Atlanta’s short and long term future due to the absence of the injured Josef Martinez, who was placed on the Season-Ending Injury List.
