LAFC trade top pick Joao Moutinho to Orlando for Mohamed El-Munir
LAFC traded former No. 1 draft pick Joao Moutinho to Orlando SC for Libyan defender Mohamed El-Munir.
LAFC announced the deal Tuesday.
El-Munir appeared in 26 games for Orlando in his first MLS season, recording two assists. He has Europa League experience from his time with Dinamo Minsk.
The 20-year-old Moutinho appeared in only 14 games for expansion LAFC, scoring one goal. The Portuguese prospect was the top pick in last year's SuperDraft out of the University of Akron.
