As City Watch exclusively reported on Saturday, Antuna signed his contract with the American club on Friday, and the deal has now been confirmed.
It will be Antuna’s second loan move away from City since his arrival from Club Laguna Santos in 2017. His loan move to FC Groningen was intended to be for two seasons, but the Dutch side cut short the deal by half a season recently as they could not offer Antuna consistent game time.
Antuna will continue his career at the Dignity Health Sports Park playing alongside the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the Dos Santos brothers.
“Uriel is a talented, young and dynamic midfielder who we think can add to our attack,” said LA Galaxy General Manager Dennis te Kloese. “He has experience playing in for clubs in Mexico, England and the Netherlands and will only continue to develop and improve as a player. We are excited to add him to our roster and believe he can offer something positive to our team.”
