One of the MLS legends still playing in the league is Kei Kamara. The 36-year-old striker has left a before and after in the US soccer's history after his great performances and screamers along his career. Once again he is on top of the headlines after the confirmation of moving to Minnesota United. Something that became perfect also to Colorado Rapids.

With 133 goals in his MLS career, Kamara is ranked fourth in the all-time scoring history of the tournament. That's why when his new head coach Adrian Heath said that they're adding one of the bests he is surely not exaggerating. Minnesota acquired him in exchange for a second-round draft pick in the 2022 MLS SuperDraft and $150,000 in 2021 General Allocation Money (GAM). Something that is also profitable for Colorado Rapids.

Valued in $523,000, the striker will add experience to the Loons attack front and depth. Something that today they need to improve their offensive strategy. Minnesota United will become the eighth different team for the 36-year-old striker. Kamara has scored three goals in nine matches for Colorado this season.
