Multiple sources say FC Dallas about to add defensive help.

The silly season for FC Dallas is in full force, and our latest rumor comes from Brazil, where sources out of Gremio say this deal is all but done:

Bressan is a 25-year old Brazilian center back, who is a former Brazil U23 player. He played in 22 matches for Gremio in 2018, starting 21.

Bressan is best known as the substitute who got Gremio eliminated from the 2018 Copa Libertadores, when a handball gave River Plate a PK that they would convert into the game winning goal.

This signing, if true, will raise some eyebrows. Bressan is a likely starter, and may signal the impending departure of one of the incumbent center backs or he could be brought in to help build up the depth in the back.

What do you think Bressen potentially joining FC Dallas? Would this a good signing? Is one of last years starters in the backline leaving?
