LA Galaxy are still in the hunt for USMNT defender Aaron Long
The team with the most MLS league titles are keen on signing the former New York Red Bulls defender ahead of the start of the season.
Aaron Long became a free agent following his participation with the United States men’s national team defender at the 2022 FIFA World Cup and he has many offers on the table. The 30-year-old decided not to continue with New York Red Bulls and clubs from Europe, MLS and Liga MX are looking to sign him during the transfer window.
Long expected to make a decision soon
Earlier this week it was reported by Fox Sports that Liga MX sides Cruz Azul and Monterrey were in pole position to sign Aaron Long ahead for the Clausura 2023, but they would be forced to reduce their quota of NFM (No Formados en Mexico or Not Mexican Home-grown) players. The USMNT defender also rejected an offer to continue his career in Saudi Arabia and he is expected to make a decision soon.
Now it has been reported by journalist Tyler Twellmen that the Los Angeles Galaxy are in the hunt for Aaron Long and that they are one of three MLS teams interested in his services. The other two Major League Soccer clubs keen on signing the 30-year-old are Inter Miami and the Seattle Sounders.
The three MLS clubs mentioned above know that the addition of Aaron Long will strengthen their roster ahead of the start of the 2023 campaign set to start in February. In 2018 the experienced defender was named MLS defender of the year and he has made 149 appearances in the league, including playoffs, since making his debut with the Red Bulls in 2017.
