DESIGNATED PLAYER RULE EXPLAINED

Ives Galarcep: “MLS owners are ready to ratify changes to the current salary cap rules to create a Core Player roster spot that will effectively work as a fourth designated player place for any teams currently using all three slots.

“The Galaxy currently have Robbie Keane and Omar Gonzalez as Designated Players, with Steven Gerrard joining as the third this weekend.

“Dos Santos, though, would not join LA Galaxy until August due to international commitments, by which time MLS would be expected to have implemented its salary cap changes.”
