It's a new year, and MLS teams are in preseason training as we speak.
There's been a TON of news and big changes to the top teams and contenders already in the offseason. Some of the notable names that have moved:
- Alphonso Davies to Bayern Munich
- Tyler Adams to RB Leipzig
- Miguel Almiron to Newcastle (for the MLS record transfer fee, no less)
- Sebastian Giovinco to Al-Hilal (Saudi Arabia)
Those are just the big ones that come to mind off the top of my head.
FC Cincinnati's first MLS squad has started to come together, though it looks like they're planning to roll out 5 defensive midfielders based on their acquisitions. Regardless of snark, should be interesting to see how their initial campaign goes in MLS.
And just last night, DC United's Lucho Acosta has been linked with a ten million dollar move to PSG (wtf?!?).
MLS is such a fun league to follow and it seems that teams in Europe are finally realizing the rising quality of play. Becoming a selling league is a great step in the development of MLS.
Can't wait for the season to start!
