The deal is still subject to agreeing on personal terms with Durán, as well as a medical and work visa.

A source tells MLSsoccer.com the deal is worth up to $22 million ($18 million up front, plus another $4 million in add-ons). The Fire will retain a sell-on percentage as well. The deal could be the second-biggest outbound transfer in MLS history.

Durán, who just turned 19 in December, tallied eight goals and three assists over 1,363 minutes (27 appearances; 14 starts) during his lone MLS season for the Fire. The center forward already has three appearances for the senior Colombian national team and is currently with their U-20 side at the South American U-20 Championship this month.

The Fire initially acquired Durán from Colombian club Envigado FC for up to $2.5 million in 2021, a deal that wouldn't go through until the winter of 2022 after Durán turned 18. The forward had nine goals and four assists for Envigado. He was named to The Guardian's Next Generation 2020 list, highlighting the best talents around the globe in his age group.
