Chivas USA sign Swiss international Raphaël Wicky
Wicky fits in well with the technical style of Chivas and should be right at home with Jonathan Bornstein and Claudio Suarez in the back. The only downside I see to the deal (provided that he continues to fully recover from his surgery) is the duration. It is just one year with a one-year option. If Wicky plays as solid as he should, look for Chivas to exercise their option but still trade him away for some transfer money. Also, he might be called in to Euro 2008, so he could be gone for a month mid-season.
Overall, this is one of the best non-South American signings for the MLS this season.
