The New England Revolution acquired veteran midfielder Sebastian Lletget from the LA Galaxy on Thursday in exchange for up to $1.3 million in general allocation money.

The Galaxy will receive a guaranteed $500,000 over the next two years ($300,000 in 2022, $200,000 in 2023) with the remainder based on performance incentives.

Lletget, 29, tallied three goals and five assists in 26 games (21 starts) for Los Angeles in 2021. He registered 23 goals and 27 assists in 158 matches (131) with the Galaxy since 2015.

“In Sebastian Lletget, we have acquired a midfielder who has experienced success at both the MLS and international levels,” Revs sporting director and head coach Bruce Arena said in a release. “He is a talented player who is a dependable box-to-box player, can score goals, and is an excellent team player. Sebastian is a great addition to our team.”

Lletget said farewell on social media to the only MLS team he has ever known.

“LA thank you. Thank you for the Opportunity. Thank you to my teammates throughout the years. Thank you all for challenging me. For me, well, it’s time for a new chapter. Until we meet again. Thank you,” he tweeted.

New England, the 2021 Supporters’ Shield winners, was looking for a replacement for winger Tajon Buchanan, who departed for Belgium’s Club Brugge.
