Los Angeles Galaxy full roster for MLS 2021: all transfers

The past few seasons have not exactly lived up to the expectations placed on LA Galaxy, one of the founding teams in Major League Soccer. They last reached the play-offs in 2019, only to be knocked out in the semi-finals by LAFC. Last season was hugely disappointing as the team finished tenth in the Western Conference, prompting the dismissal of Argentine coach Guillermo Barros Schelotto in October.

LA Galaxy old guard make way for new faces

Since Vanney’s appointment the roster has undergo an overhaul with Cristián Pavón, Joe Corona, David Bingham and Emiliano Insua leaving with new recruits including winger Samuel Grandsir, who joined from Monaco, Eire international centre-back Derrick Williams who signed from Blackburn Rovers and goalkeeper Jonathan Bond, who has experience in the Premier League and Championship from his time at previous club West Brom. The 2021 Galaxy roster is a blend of experienced players like Chicharito and Jonathan dos Santos and emerging talent. The most recent signing, winger Kevin Cabral who joined on a five-year, $250,000 deal from Valenciennes FC arrived earlier this month – just in time for Sunday’s Opening Day showdown with David Beckham’s Inter Miami.
