SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Real Monarchs have added a bright, young center back to its 2021 roster with the signing of Kevin Saucedo from Colombian Categoria Primera A side Millonarios F.C.

Saucedo’s signing is pending league and federation approval, as well as the approval of his P-1 visa. The terms of the signing have not been disclosed.

“We are excited to announce the addition of Kevin to our Monarchs roster for 2021 as his profile and playing style already make him a formidable defender,” Assistant General Manager Tony Beltran said. “We believe that under the guidance of Jamison and our coaching staff, Kevin has the talent potential to mature into a special player.”

Saucedo, 20, has made several appearances with the Colombian U-20 team. Saucedo was also a part of the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup squad that represented Colombia in Poland where he helped his side to a quarterfinal appearance.

Saucedo’s signing marks the fifth player signed by the Monarchs ahead of the 2021 season. Goalkeeper Jimmy Slayton; defender James Moberg; and midfielders Sam Brown and Josimar Quintero are also signed to the Monarchs roster for the 2021 season.
