Chicago Fire FC today announced that the Club and Jairo Torres have mutually agreed to terminate the winger’s contract. The move opens a Designated Player slot on the Fire’s roster.
“After many discussions with Jairo and the coaching staff, we all agreed that this was the best decision for the player and the Club at this time, said Chicago Fire FC Sporting Director Georg Heitz. “I’d like to thank Jairo for his contributions to the Chicago Fire and wish him all the best for the future.”
Torres, 23, was originally acquired by the Fire as Young Designated Player on Feb. 19, 2022, via transfer from Atlas F.C. Prior to joining Chicago, Torres played in 119 matches for Atlas across all competitions and helped the club capture its first Liga MX title in 70 years in 2021.
