FC Cincinnati trades for NYCFC defender Ronald Matarrita

FC Cincinnati's back line looks a lot more sound after the club on Tuesday announced the acquisition of Costa Rican international Ronald Matarrita.

FC Cincinnati sent $500,000 in general allocation money (GAM) to New York City FC in a trade for the outside back. FC Cincinnati then signed Matarrita to a multi-year extension, according to the club.

The details of the extension weren't released. 

FC Cincinnati could send an additional $100,000 in GAM to New York if Matarrita reaches the threshold for performance incentives.

Matarrita, whose 2019 base salary was reported to be $300,000 by the Major League Soccer Players Association, is a U.S. Permanent Resident and will occupy a domestic roster spot on FC Cincinnati’s 2021 roster.

The Enquirer will update this story.
