Phoenix Rising midfielder Carlos Harvey has been transferred to Major League Soccer side, Minnesota United for an undisclosed fee, the club announced today.
“Carlos was an integral part of what we were able to achieve as a club last year,” said Head Coach Danny Stone. “A versatile player that can fit into several roles at the MLS level, he deserves this opportunity to move on to his next challenge. We send him with all our best wishes and hope he has nothing but success.”
Harvey, who turns 24 next week, joined Rising on February 7, 2023. He scored five goals in 34 appearances, helping to lead Phoenix to its first USL Championship title. Harvey added two goals in U.S. Open Cup play, finishing the season with seven goals and six assists across all competitions.
Harvey took his game to the next level in the postseason, playing 405 minutes in four matches and setting up two goals scored by Danny Trejo in the first two rounds.
“The truth is Phoenix Rising prepared me very well and in the best way possible to face this new challenge,” said Harvey. “Thanks to all my teammates and the technical staff, front office, and medical staff… All who prepared me in the best way for me to succeed. I am also very happy and very grateful to all the fans here in Phoenix. The entire city treated me in the best way possible. They made me feel at home.”
