Carlos Bocanegra, vice president and technical director of Atlanta United, is hardly a prophet when it comes to Europe’s winter transfer window.
As of right now, though, the Five Stripes want their No. 10 starting in the 2024 MLS season.
“Things change, as you guys know, in the transfer window,” Bocanegra said during Friday’s year-end media availability. “If [offers] come in December, January, we’ll have that conversation with the player. Does this offer fit? Is this the right place to go?
“But really with Thiago, we’ve created it where if he would like to stay and the right offer doesn’t come and the right club does not come in for him, then he’s okay to stay and he’s happy here. I think that’s great for us.
“We’re planning on him coming back. Things can change. I don’t want to say 100% he’s back because that’s how it works in the global football world. But great kid and at the moment we’re counting on him being part of our group next year.”
Atlanta’s viewpoint is based on constant rumors and conjecture around Almada, their Argentine hero who, with the help of now-Inter Miami CF star Lionel Messi, led his country to triumph in Qatar 2022 past winter, becoming the first active FIFA World Cup champion in MLS history.

We are now seeing the development of Inter Miami, which will be a power in the league at the start of the next season.
Inter Miami CF’s head coach, Gerardo “Tata” Martino, has declared that the Club is once again interested in bringing in former teammate Luis Suárez during the upcoming winter transfer window.
Martino stated that the team is still interested in signing the 36-year-old Uruguayan during a press conference the day before Miami’s final MLS home game, which ended in a 2-2 draw with Charlotte FC.
