The LA Galaxy get Riqui Puig on a TAM deal that closes out their transfer window. Plus what did SoFi do for the Galaxy’s confidence?
COG STUDIOS, Calif. — It’s been a busy day. The Transfer Window is officially closing. But the LA Galaxy have done some excellent business this window. With no DP slots and while somewhat restricted on TAM, the Galaxy were able to land Gaston Brugman and their just announced signing, 22-year-old Riqui Puig. And then they sent Rayan Raveloson to Ligue 1 for a sizeable transfer fee.
It’s a coup of sorts for an under-fire front office. And it comes on the heels of a solid performance at the first-ever soccer game played at SoFi Stadium. It was a night where the future of the Galaxy was on full display.
Hosts Josh Guesman and Sophie Nicolaou will update you on Galaxy news and talk about how all these pieces fall together for the season’s home stretch.
The first item on the itinerary has Josh and Sophie talk about the Galaxy’s confidence after beating Chivas at SoFi Stadium. What did the stadium have to offer, and why was Greg Vanney beaming afterward?
And what details can we share about the transfers of Puig and Raveloson? What grade does the front office get for the moves they’ve made?
Finally, what can we expect from a game in Kansas City? Is this another place that, historically, the Galaxy don’t win? Is this a “Can’t Lose” game with just 12 of them remaining?
