MLS FOOTBALL TRANSFER RUMOURS

There are several links of players to the Major League Soccer this summer.


A lot of European stars are more open minded about playing the American top flight in recent years. The competitive wages and fast paced developments of the league has helped as well. Aside European stars, many others from other regions are open to joining the MLS as well.

There are strong indications that Australian James Troisi might move to the MLS. After the lapse of his deal with Melbourne Victory, Troisi wants to explore the US. He is reportedly in New York with the hope of getting a decent side to join. His confederation Cup showing would be a plus for the 29-year old forward.

Ligue 1 star Andre-Pierre Gignac is another one poised to move to the MLS but Los Angeles Galaxy is wary of the high price tag. His transfer fee and salary were way above what the Galaxy directors could manage.

This means Gignac might remain in the Ligue 1, most likely with the Tigres. The player was open to the move to America else he would remain in Monterrey rather than move Far East. He has a deal running until the summer of 2018.

Real Salt Lake took theirs to Turkey where they hope to lure Cristobal Jorquera. RSL offered less than a million dollars for the signature of the 28-year old. The Chilean is reportedly keen on moving to America after his time at Bursaspor. It now depends on if the Turkish side would accept the offer and sanction the move.

Houston Dynamo would be taking a player from Portuguese side Braga, according to reports. The 22-year old Argentine moved to Braga last year but failed to impress. His deal to Dynamo would reportedly cost the MLS side around €1.5-2 million.
