LA Galaxy News
Although it is not known for sure if Douglas Costa will line up in this match, the most likely player to do so is Javier "Chicharito" Hernández, who in previous days showed off the team's new uniform on social networks.
The Galaxians know that last season they owed a debt to their fans and perhaps because of that debt, is that in this transfer season they went all out to get the Brazilian, who will team up with "Chicharito", in what is expected to be the goal-scoring duo of the season.
This idea was reinforced by Costa himself who in recent days in an interview said: "I did not have the opportunity to see the Galaxy last season, but everyone knows Chicharito and he is an important player with great scoring ability and I am grateful for the opportunity to play with him.
DC United News
But the Galaxy isn't the only team looking to surprise with out-of-the-box signings in MLS 2022, as the club's deep interest in Carlos Tevez has been reported.
While it has been two weeks since this information came to light and there has been nothing concrete, according to The Athletic, Felipe Cardenas and Pablo Maurer note that there is a "25 percent" chance that Tevez's addition by the club from the U.S. capital will happen.
If Tevez's arrival becomes a reality, it could even overshadow Lorenzo Insigne's legacy at Toronto FC.
