Dom Dwyer is on the move, after he was traded from Sporting Kansas City to Orlando City for $1.6 million in Allocation money on Tuesday. It is the most expensive trade in MLS history. Dwyer is familiar with Orlando, having played there in 2013 when the team was still in the USL. This seems to be a good move for both sides. Orlando gets a top level striker to partner alongside Cyle Larin (or replace him if Larin is sold), and KC get a huge chunk of money, and cashed in on a player that it wasn’t clear if he was going to return. Will Dwyer help propel the Lions into the playoffs? Orlando sure hopes so.
Stop me if you heard this one before: Mexico’s manager is now on the hot seat after losing in a tournament. The latest version of this saga is Juan Carlos Osorio feeling the heat after Mexico lost to Germany in the Confederations Cup, and were then upset by Jamaica in the Gold Cup semifinal. Some Mexican fans have already turned on Osorio, he was forced to leave the Rose Bowl under police escort. But as Mexico’s Football Federation is learning, trying to replace Osorio isn’t as easy as it seems.
It was reported by Marca earlier that Real Madrid had agreed on a record transfer fee for Monaco star Kylian Mbappe. But Manchester City are reportedly coming in with a late bid to try and steal Mbappe away from Los Blancos. City have already spent a lot this offseason, but if there is a chance to snag Mbappe, it would be worth it. As with most transfer rumors, nobody knows what exactly is true, but what is clear is that the Mbappe transfer saga just got even more interesting.
Paris Saint-Germain’s players and fans alike were feeling good after their 4-0 defeat of Barcelona in the Champions League Round of 16 first leg game. One man, Mont-de-Marsan mayor Charles Dayot, went as far as to say that if Barcelona came back and won the tie that he would eat a rat. Well, unfortunately for him, we all know that Barcelona pulled off an astounding comeback, and Dayot now had to eat a rat. But to his credit (I guess) he did it. This is why you don’t make outlandish bets on the internet, especially ones that involve you potentially eating rats.
