With MLS expanding next season, the international player rules have changed a bit. The total number of Senior International places in the league will grow from 30 to 48, and Transitional Internationals (U-24) from 20 to 40. Almost certainly, quite a few of these openings will be filled by players from around Concacaf. A couple of tidbits gathered from recent news ... Chivas USA -- There were recent discussions with Saprissa about sending young players. The team's SIs are likely to be all Mexicans, though, with Paco Palencia, Ramón Ramírez, and a defender named Loera being suggested in the most recent reports. (Manuel Sol was also mentioned in the article I saw.) Galaxy -- La Opinión reports today that Costa Rican Walter Centeno and Guatemalans Angel Sanabria and Pando Ramírez are being considered for next season. http://www.laopinion.com/deportes/futbol/?rkey=00041116190609233308 Any comment on these players or others?
