Could MLS teams be looking to China for their next big signing?

Inter Miami said they wouldn’t wait for a star player….

The Union will still be seeing a lot of Julian Gressel, just not in Atlanta.

Looks like Aaron Long won’t be getting a Premier League move.

Tim Ream had a day to forget against Man City.


  1. Old Soccer Coach says:

    They have never in my memory gone into a season without four center backs, and Mark McKenzie is likely to be away for the U. S. attempt to qualify for Tokyo, and Tokyo should qualification succeed. (Remember everyone sends their U23s with three overage players allowed.)
    So I would say they need an additional center back.

    • Do they not have anyone at Union 2 who could fill in if needed? Both Curtin and Tanner have said they expect another signing or two before the season begins…. I’d love to see a better backup option than Colin.

      • John O'Donnell Jr says:

        Looks like they will announce Jakob Glesnes as the CB signing Curtin mentioned.
        Strömsgodset has reached agreement with the MLS club Philadelphia Union on the framework for the sale of Captain Jakob Glesnes (25).
