With eight transfers to European football in this transfer market plus two more that could be added (Brian Rodriguez to Serie A and Brenden Aaronson to Austria), MLS would become the most productive league in the entire American continent. Is that its biggest competitors in terms of sales, Mexico, Uruguay and Argentina have only sold six of the three combined.
Of the eight sales that have occurred so far, without a doubt that of Reggie Cannon for almost $ 2.5 million from Dallas FC to Boavista of Portugal and Kemar Lawrence of New York Red Bull to Anderlecht of Belgium at $ 2 million were the most resonant. .
Brendan Aaronson and Brian Rodriguez could join this list of players in the next few hours and their sales would be in the millions. Aaronson would go to Red Bull Salzburg for close to $ 6 million, while Brian Rodriguez would be sold for around $ 20 million.
In addition, other young MLS players such as Ezequiel Barco, Mark McKenzie, Diego Rossi, Eduard Atuesta or Jeremy Ebobisse have been followed by European teams for a long time and it is only a matter of time before they too pack their bags and emigrate to European football. The MLS became, after much effort, the American league that best exports players to Europe.
