06:48 PM ET 03.30 | For most of the parties involved in the latest Freddy Adu move, there is now a sense of relief. The Philadelphia Union were able to get Adu a new home at Bahia in Brazil. Adu came back to Twitter to announce that he feels ready to go and is very happy to be in Brazil. Jose Kleberson is now a member of the Union and has arrived in Philadelphia, although he may not play this weekend. Kleberson will be an exciting addition to Major League Soccer, but it is a bigger story that Adu seems revived. He had a ton of pressure as an early teen and has never found a home. Hopefully this will be a very successful move. "Needed to get that love I had for the game as a teenager back," Adu tweeted. "Thank God for this feeling I have now and can't wait to get back on the field."

Well, obviously, because it certainly can't *hurt* his career... that's already rock-bottom at this point.

Rock bottom would be no team willing to take him, wouldn't it?

Bahia is a nobody.
