DC United is making a huge push for the Eastern Conference and beyond.
The Washington Post’s Steven Goff says the Black-and-Red may be bringing Ola Kamara back to Major League Soccer from the Chinese Super League.
When it comes to MLS, Kamara has simply scored goals. The 29-year-old has bagged 48 in three MLS seasons spent between Columbus and the LA Galaxy.
Goff reports that the transfer fee to bring Kamara back Stateside is $2.5 million, and that DC also has to send a quarter of a million dollars to Colorado for the top spot in the allocation order.

Bojan, 28, is four seasons removed from his 7-goal Premier League campaign with Stoke City.
He’s had trouble firing since that point, with just six goals between three seasons spent between Mainz, Alaves, and Stoke.
Seeing what Carles Gil has done with New England, though, you cannot help but think Bojan has the skill set to light the East on fire.
Both teams are amongst eight still very much in the race to finish first in the East. Kamara to DC is a near-automatic hit. If Montreal can clear room to add Bojan to an attack with Saphir Taidir, Orji Okwonkwo, and the returning Ignacio Piatti, then look out for the Impact.
