The silly season is getting serious.
That is, so long as you believe Transfermarkt.com.
As many have noticed throughout the day, the popular player data hub has listed 23 year old attacking midfielder Miguel Camargo as arriving to NYCFC on a free transfer as of January 1st, 2017.
Oh, and one Panamanian TV station has already made a hashtag for this momentous event:
#TodosConCamargo! Believe it.
Camargo, who plays up the middle but can also cover on either wing, currently plies his trade with Venezuelan side Mineros de Guayana on loan from parent club Chorrillo FC of Panama.
He has twelve goals in 32 total league appearances in 2016 for Mineros, and Transfermarkt gives him an estimated market value of just over $400,000.
A full Panamanian international, he has twelve caps for los Canaleros dating back to August 2014. At the 2016 Copa America Centenario, he scored his first international goal on this long-range offering against the tournament’s eventual champions:
