Tune in any time you wish, as we keep you up to date on all transfer rumors involving FC Dallas. We’ll post updates regularly.

One of the most hectic silly seasons in memory, continues to spit out rumors involving FC Dallas. We have yet another one for you.

FC Dallas interested in Franco Cervi

Bruno Andrade, who is a very reliable source on Portuguese soccer is reporting that FC Dallas is one of several team interested in acquiring the Argentine player:

FC Dallas loves attacking Argentine players, but Benfica’s asking price of 10 million euros is out of FCD’s normal price range. This one is a bit hard to believe but worth keeping an eye on, just in case.

Bryan Reynolds to Europe

Local outlet 3rd Degree has been the epicenter of all things Bryan Reynolds. They were on point in their coverage of Reggie Cannon going to Europe rumors earlier this year, so there’s no reason to doubt them here.


Update 12/20/20

FC Dallas signs Juan Dinneno

Juan Ignacio Dinenno, Striker, Pumas (Liga MX)

@record_mexico reported that FC Dallas made an offer for Dinenno.


Jose Luis Sanchez Sola of ESPN (spanish) has reported that the deal for Dinenno to FC Dallas is done.

The Mexican trainer and reporter for ESPN was answering questions about the movement of another Pumas player (Carlos Gonzalez) to Tigres UNAM (Liga MX), when he dropped the news that the deal for Dinenno was finalized. Jose Luis Sanchez Sola took it a step further and said that the reason Dinenno was being sold to MLS was that Pumas would be receiving the entire transfer amount up front, which is something that Pumas needed badly.

Thomas Roberts 6 month loan to Hibernian (Scottish Premiere League)

For those of you who were not aware, Roberts has been in Scotland for the past month. Following a two week quarantine, Roberts began training with Hibs and has participated in two friendlies. For those not following the Scottish club, midfield depth is a serious need for Hibs.

Still under contract with FCD, Roberts is looking to get loaned to Europe and Hibs may be just his first stop.


Roberts went on ChumChat, and dropped some inside knowledge

A must watch for FC Dallas fans everywhere. I’ll leave it at that.

Tanner Tessman to Europe

Will Forbes reported that several Bundesliga clubs are following Tessman closely.


No further reports have surfaced since the initial report.

Clearly there’s no real smoke here but I won’t be surprised if that changes the closer we get to January.

FC Dallas interested in Nicolas Benedetti

Nicolas Benedetti, Attacking Midfielder, Club America (Liga MX)

Benedetti is a 23 year old Colombian player who has a reputation for being injury prone. He’s got a ton of talent, and his listed price on is quite high ($3.52 million), so this rumor is hard to digest. The only thing that keeps me from dismissing it out right, is that FC Dallas loves them some young attacking Colombians!

FC Dallas signs Jose A. Martinez
