Happy Independence Day!

MLS

One of the many good players for Atlanta this season, Yamil Asad, is only there on loan, but ATL United has the option to purchase. Unfortunately, Gerardo Martino isn’t confirming if the club has paid up yet.

Sounders target, or former target, Keisuke Honda has been training with Orange County SC. The USL side is affiliated with MLS expansion side LAFC, which has unsurprisingly sparked some rumors. If Honda goes there, it’ll be a great start for the club as they build their brand.

The New England Revolution moved up to number two in the allocation order, meaning a transfer is likely imminent. "For who?" is the biggest question, and the Bent Musket came up with five players, including a former Sounder.

Black and Red United did a video recap of their match against Montreal, and it’s pretty sad.

USA

Another US youth national teamer is heading to Europe as Timothy Weah, son of George Weah, signed his first professional contract. Breaking the trend of joining a club in Germany though, Weah is signing with Paris Saint-Germain.

Megan Rapinoe, a Reign FC player you have likely heard of, is in the best form of her life.

Los Dos had a tough night...

World

Any chance that Chicharito may come to MLS could be quashed, as West Ham United is looking to activate his release clause to the tune of £13m. A potential move to London would likely kill a move to MLS for at least a couple of seasons.

Germany won the Confederations Cup and the UEFA U21 Championships, and all of this came as the defending World Cup champions. They're built to win, and win for a while.

New English Premier League jerseys are out, with photos from every club. Tell us your favorites, least favorites... really just any opinions on the subject because kits are a great topic.
