Extratime: Talking Neymar & Beckham and new Toronto FC DP Pablo Piatti, plus BWP to LAFC

Neymar + David Beckham and Inter Miami = TBD. Is it real? (Maybe! Not soon.) Is it fun? (Oh yes.) Will the guys shoot it down? (Maybe.) Once that’s out of the way, it’s time to talk Designated Players, as Toronto FC fill their third spot with Pablo Piatti from La Liga. He’s got some question marks (namely, injury), but the Argentine is betting on himself. Will it pay off for Toronto FC?

Also in this show ... Bradley Wright-Phillips to LAFC is done, now what should we expect from the Red Bulls legend? Luis Amarilla makes 25 goals his aim in Minnesota. Wise choice? Plus, we talk Real Salt Lake’s new Young DP, Jurgen Locadia’s purchase clause, Gio Reyna and CBA clarifications in the mailbag.

We’ve also got exclusive 1v1 interviews with D.C. United Golden Boot darkhorse Ola Kamara, MNUFC midfielder Jan Gregus and Costa Rican international and Nashville SC attacker Randall Leal.
