The 35-year-old playwright from Argentina is leaving the Rose City after seven seasons. His contract was expired.

“I would like to extend my personal gratitude to Sebastián, and on behalf of everyone within the club, for his seven incredible years in Portland,” general manager Ned Grabavoy said.

“He has provided all of us countless moments of excitement over the years and helped create so many lasting memories. Sebastián’s legacy will live on. We wish him all the best with any future opportunities and look forward to celebrating his contributions as a Portland Timber in the very near future.”

Blanco assisted in leading the Timbers to the 2020 MLS is Back championship and two MLS Cup finals (in 2018 and 2021). Arguably his best performance at the club came in the latter competition, where he won Player of the Tournament and a berth in the Tournament Best XI.

Blanco has the second-most assists for Portland in the MLS era with 51, and his 41 goals during the regular season rank third all-time for the team. He put in approximately 12,000 minutes of action in 176 regular-season games.
