Philadelphia Union midfielder Freddy Adu is off to Spain to train with La Liga side Rayo Vallecano for a week (via MLS Soccer.com). A source told MLSsoccer.com that the Adu's visit is not a trial for the Spanish side.â†µ
Adu was originally going travel for the training stint back in December, but he was called up to the U.S. Olympic camp in Florida which caused the delay. Adu will be the fourth member of the Union to train abroad during the offseason.
Last season, Adu was back in MLS for the first time since 2007 when he joined the Union from Portuguese side Benfica near the close of the transfer window. Adu was not made a Designated Player during the signing. He scored two goals and an assist in 11 appearances (6 starts) for Philadelphia in 2011.
