    NEW YORK – The Major League Soccer clubs of midfielders Rafael Baca and Michael Farfan announced Monday that the pair have been transferred to Cruz Azul subject to the finalization of an agreement between all parties.

    On Saturday, the Mexican club had presented Baca and Farfan, plus on-loan LA Galaxy forward Jose Villarreal, to the media.

    Baca, born in Mexico, spent three years with San Jose, scoring two goals in 79 MLS games.  He also appeared in three matches as the Earthquakes topped their group in this season’s CONCACAF Champions League to earn a place in the quarterfinals. 

    In three years with Philadelphia, the 25-year-old Farfan, a midfielder, made 82 MLS appearances and netted four goals.

    “Michael has been an important member for our club both on and off the field over the past three years,” said Union manager John Hackworth.  “We thank him for his contributions to the Union and wish him the best of luck as he continues his career in Mexico.”

    Cruz Azul will face current U.S. champion Sporting Kansas City in the CCL quarterfinals next year.
