On July 21, SportExpressen managed to reveal that Djurgården was about to recruit Magnus Eriksson from San José Earthquakes. By then, the club had offered the striker an offer of the contract, and it was fairly clear that the 30-year-old would return to the club he represented between 2016 and 2017, before being sold to MLS and San José. The only question was whether Erikson would return this summer or after the season.
I worked to get rid of Ericsson for a long time
Djurgården’s goal has always been to bring him home in this window and according to SportExpressen’s information, it now looks like Erikson will be back this summer.
The parties have been negotiating for a long time and it has been evident for some time that San Jose and Diorgarden had agreed on the player’s transfer. The 30-year-old and Djurgarden also verbally agree on personal terms and the player is expected to join the rest of the team before next week.
Enters the European League Qualifiers
Djurgarden is working on his score in the Europa League qualifiers and the player is expected to perform next week.
Djurgarden was eliminated from the Champions League qualification match against Hungary’s Ferencváros last night, after losing 2-0 away from home. Now, instead, the team is entering the qualifying spirit of the Europa League group stage.
During his time at San Jose, Magnus Erikson managed to score 74 goals, 17 goals and 11 assists.
Confirm transfer soon
This season he was the captain for the squad, which took you to the playoff quarter-finals, where they were knocked out against Minnesota United. San Jose Earthquakes is expected to confirm that Magnus Eriksson will leave the club soon and that he will not be with the club when the club resumes the season in a week’s time with a match against Portland Timbers.
