Osvaldo Alonso moves on, says this report

Osvaldo Alonso’s time with the Seattle Sounders is over and with it the initial era of an expansion team that turned into one of the strongest in MLS.

Read the report: Osvaldo Alonso moves on

The mechanics of the Sounders letting Alonso walk with Minnesota United rumored to sign him are fairly straight-forward.

Seattle has younger options capable of stepping in for Alonso and can find players on the international market at lower price points.
