Headlines
Minnesota United has sent a total of $650,000 in allocation money to Orlando City for winger Kevin Molino. Molino will take his 11 goals and 8 assists from 2016 to an unproven attack that contains NASL scoring champ Christian Ramirez and NASL and Liga MX veteran Miguel Iborra. It feels like a steep price to pay, but we don't have much to compare it to since we don't have spending figures from before this offseason. Orlando loses a big attacking piece, but does have some cash to throw around in search of a replacement.

MLS has another expansion candidate. Phoenix has thrown its hat in the ring to become one of the next four MLS clubs to join the fold. Currently, Phoenix Rising FC, who were known as Arizona United last year, is the lone pro club in the area and they play in the USL. They are the 11th market to enter the race joining Charlotte, Cincinnati, Detroit, Nashville, Raleigh/Durham, Sacramento, St. Louis, San Antonio, San Diego and Tampa/St. Petersburg. The deadline to apply is January 31.
