Since landing in the MLS, Carranza has shown his worth on the pitch. With 74 appearances and 14 goals in two consecutive seasons, he quickly became a fan favorite. His impact was immediate: from his first goal against Charlotte FC to his historic hat-trick against DC United, Carranza proved to be a player of great caliber.

Now, with a contract signed until 2028, Carranza is ready to take on new challenges in the Eredivisie. Feyenoord, known for its rich history and European achievements, offers the perfect stage for the young striker to shine. And it's not just an opportunity for Carranza; this transfer is testimony to the growing prestige of the MLS as a league that can train players for the big stages of world soccer.

Ernst Tanner, the Union's sporting director, acknowledged Carranza's importance to the club, but stressed that this transfer is a strategic decision for both the player and the club. Union now have the chance to fine-tune their squad as they prepare for the summer transfer window.

For Carranza, this move is a chance to prove his worth in one of the most competitive arenas in European soccer. He expressed his gratitude for Feyenoord's interest and is looking forward to contributing to the club and its fans. After developing his talent in the MLS, Carranza is confident that he is ready for this new phase.

The Philadelphia Union, for their part, are losing one of their key players, but this departure makes room for new signings and squad adjustments. The club's ability to identify and develop talent remains one of its strengths, and this transfer is further proof of that.

This move is a win-win: Carranza will have the chance to shine in Europe, while Union benefit financially and prepare to strengthen their squad.
