The MLS hot stove action is heating up this offseason, and some very big global names have been linked to the league lately. Need a refresher on who's being mooted for an MLS move? Here's some of the big stars who could be bound for North America in 2020.
Linked to Seattle Sounders, Inter Miami
Last week, Suarez reiterated his interest in playing in MLS after his deal with FC Barcelona ends. As for the destination? That remains up in the air. Suarez's compatriot Nicolas Lodeiro has been lobbying hard for the Uruguayan star to join him at the Sounders, but there's been plenty of chatter he could end up with Inter Miami CF.
Linked to Toronto FC, general interest in MLS move
Balotelli's move to hometown club Brescia hasn't worked out, and the latest word is he could be on the move as soon as January. As for the destination, a recent report from Gazzetta dello Sport claims Balotelli is intrigued by a move to MLS. Another report from Italian jounalist Nicolo Schira said Toronto FC is interested in the striker.
Linked to LA Galaxy, Inter Miami
Back on Uruguayan star forwards, Cavani was linked to a move to the LA Galaxy to replace his former Paris Saint-Germain teammate Zlatan Ibrahimovic just last week. Multiple outlets jumped on that report, but Cavani has previously been linked to Inter Miami, too.
Linked to D.C. United, Inter Miami
Plenty of chatter emerged in the summer that the Arsenal midfielder could be the next big name at D.C. United, but that flurry has since died down. A report from Bleacher Report in October claimed Ozil was interested in coming to MLS if he was not going to be given a fair shake with the Gunners, with Inter Miami also mentioned as a possible destination. But in an interview with The Athletic last month, Ozil also said his intention is to stay at Arsenal until his contract ends in 2021.
Linked to LAFC, Inter Miami
The Juventus striker has not made an appearance this season, with the Old Lady brass reportedly telling Mandzukic he should move on at the next opportunity. The Croatian has been linked to numerous clubs on three continents, but among the reported interested suitors in MLS are Inter Miami and, previously, LAFC.
