Atlanta United trade Escobar to Los Angeles FC – Up to 0,000 in GAM


Done deal! 

Los Angeles FC have acquired defender Franco Escobar in a trade with Atlanta United in exchange for up to $600,000 in General Allocation Money (GAM). The deal is split up into two portions. Atlanta United will receive $250,000 in GAM in 2022 and up to $350,000 in GAM in 2023 if certain performance metrics are met. The Five Stripes will also receive a percentage of any future transfer to a club outside of Major League Soccer

“Franco is a talented, proven MLS player who has made an impact in our league,” LAFC general manager John Thorrington said. “His ability to play multiple positions and his international experience will make him a great fit in L.A.” The 26-year-old right-back spent the 2021 season on loan at Newell’s Old Boys where he managed just six appearances before suffering a foot injury.
