Best signings in MLS this season

Following Toronto’s example

One of the more illustrative examples is the Toronto FC. In 2014, they signed two Franchise Players with credentials to do well, the case of Jermain Defoe and Gilberto, and in the end they both failed. But in the following year, they were the envy of everybody with the success of the new Franchise Players: Sebastian Giovinco and Jozy Altidore.

Jelle Van Damme (L.A. Galaxy)

He is not one of the heavyweights of the club, but his performance has been very good. The Belgian defender not only commands behind and stop the opponents but he also attacks with a wealth of resources to be a defender, he also participates in the development of offensive plays.

Rónald Matarrita (New York City FC)

The Costa Rican has docked a wonder of a box full of stars. His contribution for the team in both defensive as offensive sides has helped the team a lot in a season where the Citizens are fighting on the top of the Eastern Conference.

Tim Howard (Colorado Rapids)

The Rapids were very surprising to all in 2016, not only for their good football and the results obtained, but also to achieve the repatriation of the historic goalkeeper of the National Team. Howard was a mediatic signing, and immediately made an impact with his spectacular saves, which also have earned points for the club.
