Hernan Bernardello is slotted to become the Montreal Impact's second Designated Player. The Argentinean midfielder could add his name to the Impact's history books, if negotiations between club and player are finalized. No official contract has been signed between both parties but the player will meet with the club soon.
The Impact are opting, when finalized, for a defensive solution that is not a defender. Bernardello is a defensive midfielder and his experience will help the club's midfield, especially Patrice Bernier. On paper, the 27-year old represents the perfect combination of youth and experience to help the club get to the next level.
Starting his career with Newell Old Boys, he was transferred to Spanish club Almería at the age of 22 and played over 100 games in Spain's first and second division.
After three years in Spain, Bernardello went back to Argentina on loan with Colon ans played 25 games. It was announced recently that he would be loaned to Liga MX club, F.C. Puebla but it seems that the MLS project interested him more.
As per the press release, Bernardello is meeting with the Montreal Impact to take his physical test, in Montreal.
