The LA Galaxy announced on Tuesday they have acquired an international roster slot for the 2023 MLS season from the Seattle Sounders, in exchange for $75,000 in 2023 general allocation money and $75,000 in 2024 general allocation money.
It would appear the move is likely to be a “table-setting” move ahead of another international addition in the coming days, with the Galaxy linked to Argentine defender Julian Aude over the weekend by MLSsoccer.com’s Tom Bogert. The 19-year-old has played his whole career to date at hometown side Lanús, and would be a U-22 Initiative signing. A left back, Aude would likely compete for minutes with Raheem Edwards.
But we’ll see if that’s what happens. I expect this is a preparatory move to add another player, but it is possible it could be a move intended to cover for a player already on the roster who hasn’t featured. But keep your eyes peeled for a new signing likely coming down pretty soon.
