However, Buchanan was not necessarily the first member of the team Drake sought to meet Wednesday night. Canadian coach John Herdman said after the match that Drake texted the team’s 20-year-old phenom Alphonso Davies. And wanted to meet the team. Drake also met with Davies and posted a photo of his jersey on his own Instagram. After all, it was Davies who delivered the highlight of the night.

However, Buchanan has also been making a name for himself.
In August, the Revolution agreed to sell Buchanan to the Belgian team Club Brugge. He was sold for a club record fee of $7 million. It’s with a clause to get 10 percent of any additional transfer fees.
However, he will finish the MLS season on loan with the Revs. They have already clinched the top playoff seed in the Eastern Conference.
Revolutions are on the brink of winning the first Supporters Shield in team history.
Their next game is this Saturday against the Chicago Fire at Gillette Stadium.
