Once upon a time, the MLS was seen as the league for fading superstars. That reputation hasn’t gone away completely – you’ll still find Zlatan, Nani and Wayne Rooney there – but it’s certainly changing. First, young Vancouver Whitecaps winger Alphonso Davies signed for Bayern Munich and then Miguel Almirón made a £21million move from Atlanta United to Newcastle United. These landmark moments have helped put American soccer on the map as a new hotbed for young football talent. Here

With the first week of fixtures set for March 2, it is time to take a look at the MLS Cup contenders and some of the more intriguing odds.
