Minnesota United will acquire striker Kei Kamara, one of MLS’ all-time leading goal-scorers, in a trade with Colorado Rapids, a source confirmed to the Pioneer Press on Friday.
The Loons will give the Rapids an undisclosed amount of allocation money and a draft pick. This news was first reported by sbisoccer.com.
Kamara, 36, is fifth all-time on the MLS goal-scoring chart with 129 since his career began in 2006. He has three goals in nine games this season. He will have to go through a quarantine process for COVID-19, which depending on the length, could keep him out of Minnesota’s next couple of games.
Minnesota plays at Houston Dynamo on Saturday night, at Columbus Crew on Wednesday and at home versus Real Salt Lake on Sept. 27.
