CF Montreal: a transaction that could mean more

CF Montreal on Tuesday acquired a $200,000 general allocation in 2022 and Orlando City SC’s third pick in the 2023 Major League Soccer (MLS) SuperDraft.

The team gave up a foreign player spot in return in 2022.

This transaction could be a sign of other changes to come within the Montreal workforce. Some sources, including radio channel 98.5, have raised the possibility of defender Rudy Camacho’s return, saying talks with the Frenchman have resumed. His previous contract ended on December 31 and he had claimed on social media that he would not return to Montreal this year.

Moreover, the transaction of the day could be explained differently, because from 2022, a major change will be made, for the benefit of Canadian clubs.

Indeed, according to information from TVA Sports, Major League Soccer (MLS) should soon announce the granting of three places for additional foreign players within the workforce of CF Montreal, Toronto FC and the Vancouver Whitecaps.

These clubs will therefore be given the opportunity to remove the status of foreign player from three members of their organization according to a few criteria, while retaining the eight international places given to each MLS club.

This is likely to be a game-changer, since Canadian clubs will have less pressure to compose their squad, and will also be able to exchange their foreign player places more easily and more often.

Since 2008, the clubs of the Garber circuit have a quota of foreign players who can appear in a workforce, established at eight. However, in the United States, clubs circumvent the rule by issuing, after a few months, green cards to their so-called international players.
