USL League One title-holders add international experience to 2020 roster

FRISCO, Texas - North Texas Soccer Club has signed international players Juan Manuel Alvarez, Pedro “Cuadrado” Conceição Alves and Alisson dos Santos Correa, pending league and U.S. Soccer Federation approval.

Alvarez joins North Texas SC on a one-year loan from C.F. Monterrey of Liga MX. Alves and Correa join the club on one-year contracts with options for the 2021 season.

“We are extremely excited to be able to announce these new signings,” North Texas SC General Manager Matt Denny said. “All three of these young international players are going to come in and make an impact. We have high projections for these guys and they’re hungry to prove themselves. Coming off a championship year we are definitely not looking to take our foot off the gas.  We are looking forward to a great season and I am excited for the fans to get to know these players.”

Alvarez, 23, came through Monterrey’s youth setup before joining its first team in 2017. In total, the defender made seven appearances for the club across multiple competitions including the Concacaf Champions League.

Alves, 21, is a Brazilian defender who last played for Club Guarani in Paraguay’s top division.

Correa, 20, is a Brazilian midfielder and joins North Texas SC from Sau Paulo FC in Brazil’s Serie A. Although he spent most of his time in Sau Paulo’s youth teams, Correa featured in three senior games in Brazil’s Copa Paulista.
