Fresh off an outstanding showing in this summer’s CONCACAF Gold Cup, Alejandro Bedoya looks set to make the jump to a bigger league, with reports in France linking Bedoya with a move to French club Nantes.
The U.S. Men’s National Team midfielder had completed his short-term contract with Swedish side Helsingborg, and after weighing offers from multiple leagues, it appears the 26-year-old midfielder is ready to head to Ligue 1 to join the newly-promoted side.
Bedoya enjoyed a strong showing in the Gold Cup, with standout performances in the semifinals and final to help lead the U.S. to a championship.
Bedoya is reportedly heading to France on Wednesday to sign a three-year contract with Nantes, which finished in third place in Ligue 2 to secure their place in the French top flight for the upcoming season.
Bedoya enjoyed a strong run with Helsingborg, scoring six goals in one full season with the Swedish club to help earn a place on the U.S. Gold Cup and spark interest from several European suitors.
What do you think of this development? Excited to see Bedoya playing in Ligue 1? Were you hoping he would play in the Eredivisie?
