Stop me if you've heard this one: Atlanta United signs veteran South American, Serie A midfielder Carlos Carmona

The rumors proved correct again in Atlanta United signing Carlos Carmona after his spell with Atalanta (I know, confusing) in Serie A came to an end. The 29-year-old Chilean is a defensive midfielder with World Cup experience.

From the release:

“Having represented Chile at each of the last two FIFA World Cups, in addition to his extensive experience in Serie A, Carlos brings veteran leadership and a versatile skillset to our club,” Atlanta United president Darren Eales said. “He fits in naturally with our style of play and also addresses an area of need. We couldn’t be happier to welcome him to the club.”

Carmona has spent the last nine seasons in Italy.
