Miguel Navarro signs with Chicago Fire FC until 2024


Miguel Navarro stays at Chicago Fire FC and signs a new three-year contract with the club on Monday, which includes a club option for 2025.

Navarro will not take an international place on Chicago’s list after the 22-year-old received a green card in March.

The defender joined the Chicago Fire in January 2020 from the Venezuelan first division club Deportivo La Guaira. Since then, he has made 47 appearances for the club, including 28 in 2021 and started in 25 of those appearances. Navarro made his professional debut with the Venezuelan club Deportivo JBL del Zulia 2017.

The defender was called up to the Venezuelan senior national team for the first time for two qualifying matches for the FIFA World Cup in October.

Bringing Navarro back in the long run was a goal during the low season for the organization.

“Signing Miguel to a new contract was a priority for us because we believe he has surpassed his original contract in the last two seasons,” sporting director Georg Heitz said in a statement.

“Since joining the club, Miguel has adapted well to the demands of the league and has worked hard to consistently earn his place in the starting eleven. With our philosophy towards developing young players, we are convinced that Miguel will continue to make progress while he helps the team reach its goals. “

Navarro joins Wyatt Omsberg and Jonathan Bornstein as the third defender to sign a new deal with Fire this offseaon.

The Fire finished in 12th place in the Eastern Conference 2021 with 34 points, and missed the MLS Cup playoffs for a fourth season in a row. The team’s current line is a draw for the longest playoff drought in the club’s history. Chicago has failed to advance past the first round of the MLS Cup playoffs since 2009, and has not won the league since the team’s first season in 1998.
