Sporting KC: Central midfield dart throw no bad thing

With preseason starting this month, Sporting Kansas City could still be looking to add another player in the midfield.

22-year-old Emanuel Maciel currently plays for Argentine Superliga side San Lorenzo. Reportedly, Maciel has three teams racing to sign the midfielder: Sporting KC, the Colorado Rapids, and Godoy Cruz of Argentina.

The left-footed Argentine said the original plan was to stay and fight his way into the team at San Lorenzo, but with these new options, he will make his decision in the coming weeks.

Also loosely linked with Inter Miami, if Maciel is looking at coming to MLS, he would be more likely to win trophies and better training facilities with Sporting, although he would find it more difficult to break into the starting XI.
