LA Galaxy acquire international roster slot from Seattle Sounders

Looks like the move before the move.

MLS: Nashville SC at LA Galaxy Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

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’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.
