Happy Wednesday, everyone. It’s the last Wednesday of 2021, so happy 4th day of Kwanzaa! The 4th principle of Kwanzaa is Ujamaa, which means cooperative economics. Continue to Shop Black and help stimulate business growth in Black communities.
Yesterday, there was a lot of news around Major League Soccer, so let’s get to it, beginning with a couple of transfer rumors:
D.C. United could bring a Ghanaian international to Audi Field this offseason, as there is reported interest in Yaw Yeboah.
Lorenzo Insigne could be the latest big name to head to the 6 and join Toronto FC.
Finally, Inter Miami is listening and doing something right:
The Houston Dynamo could have a new coach, 12-year MLS veteran Paulo Nagamura. That would be a nice hire for the Dynamo, who are looking to make some traction in the Western Conference.
Charlotte FC wanted an international roster slot, so they paid D.C. United $250K for it. Nice doing business with you, Charlotte.
In more Black-and-Red news, it looks like the team will be headed to both Florida and California for their preseason.
Nothing official yet but looking like D.C. United will spend the bulk of MLS preseason camp in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. (training) and Palm Springs, Calif. (friendlies and/or tournament). Pre-pandemic, #dcu spent several winters in Clearwater, Fla.— Steven Goff (@SoccerInsider) December 28, 2021
