Rumors and Transactions for All 24 MLS Teams [Part 2]

With the summer transfer window in full swing, we get you caught up on all the teams around MLS (and expansion clubs Miami, Nashville and Austin).

MLS: Vancouver Whitecaps FC at FC Dallas Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

If you are anything like me, it’s hard to keep up with all 24 teams in Major League Soccer. Sometimes it’s hard to keep up with just one team. With the secondary transfer window running from July 9th through August 7th, there are lots of moves that have already been made and rumors of many more on the horizon. Here are the teams in alphabetical order (except Sporting KC, who are first in our hearts).

For Sporting KC, we’ll include the stories from last time, but for the rest of the teams, we’ll just stick to new stuff in the last two weeks, which leaves a few teams with no news. If you are looking for prior news and rumors, a good place to start is the first edition of this story from two weeks ago.

Sporting Kansas City

Atlanta United

Austin FC

Chicago Fire

Colorado Rapids

Columbus Crew SC

D.C. United

FC Cincinnati

FC Dallas

  • Once thought of as the replacement for Mauro Diaz, midfielder Pablo Aranguiz is being loaned to Chilean Primera Division club Union Española for the rest of 2019.
  • Dallas want to keep Paxton Pomykal for 2-3 years amid rumors that bids have come in for him to go abroad.

Houston Dynamo

Inter Miami

LA Galaxy

  • The LA Galaxy are reportedly close to adding winger Cristian Pavon for a bizarre set of compensations with Argentina giants Boca Juniors. The compensation: “local journalist Martin Arevalo claims the Galaxy have made the unorthodox offer of $18 million plus two friendlies in the United States in exchange for his rights.” That would make him a Designated Player which would mean former Sporting KC target Romain Alessandrini would be gone.

Los Angeles Football Club

Minnesota United

Montreal Impact

Nashville SC

New England Revolution

New York City FC

New York Red Bulls

  • Aaron Long was on Benny Feilhaber and Sal Zizzo’s (and kind of Ike Opara’s) podcast, BS The Podcast and talked about his potential move to England. “I don’t know, man. I have no idea when I’m going, where I’m going, if I’m going at all,” said Long. “All I know is that offers have came in and got rejected right now by the Red Bulls... Obviously it’s a Prem team that made an offer and I’m sure the same is for you guys, what a dream it would be to play in that league … since I was young I’ve been watching them. It would be a dream, for sure.” He finished saying, “I think I would rather be abroad, taking my game to the next level.”

Orlando City

Philadelphia Union

Portland Timbers

Real Salt Lake

  • Salt Lake traded $75,000 in TAM to the Fire for $50,000 in GAM. Peak MLS.
  • RSL sent three players from their USL Championship team, the Real Monarchs to FC Pinzgau Saalfelden in the Austrian third-division side. The players are Andrew Brody, Josh Heard and Ruiz.

San Jose Earthquakes

Seattle Sounders

  • The Sounders are rumored to be getting 22-year-old Argentinian midfielder Emanuel Cecchini. He currently plays for second-division Spanish side Malaga and the club will have an option to buy built into the loan.
