Major League Soccer Transfer List

The Major League Soccer transfer season is never done and dusted with in-season trades between clubs a steady practice.

Every team’s scouting unit is scouring the league and the globe looking to seduce a player with the American soccer dream, and the salary-cap exemption “Beckham Rule” promises to add some big names to the transfer equation.

While home-grown talent with dreams of European glory look to move across the pond.

Will last season’s disappointments — Los Angeles, D.C. United and FC Dallas — bring in the firepower necessary to take them back to the top?

Of course as the league is a single entity, it doesn’t have to disclose the financial details of the transfer deals between clubs.

Follow all the latest movement from the ‘Toolbox’ to the ‘Razor.’
