Major League Soccer is keeping one bright star and potentially adding another, according to a pair of Tweets from respected feed @MLSTransfers.

As expected, DC United will land dynamic playmaker Luciano Acosta from Boca Juniors. Acosta, 22, was on loan with the Black-and-Red this season, where he posted three goals and a team-best 11 assists in 25 starts.

Earlier today, our own Matt Reed posted reports that Bastian Schweinsteiger is angling for a move to MLS with either LA or New York as a destination.

MLSTransfers, however, says Chicago is going to do everything in its power to lure the steady 32-year-old midfielder from Old Trafford to Toyota Park.

In a way, the Fire have been chasing a midfielder of Schweinsteiger’s presence since transfer target Jermaine Jones instead joined New England in 2014. There’s no doubt that a healthy — and no doubt extremely motivated — Schweinsteiger would transform an MLS outfit.
