7. MLS: Chivas USA signs Cuban political refugee
Former Cuban national team forward Maykel Galindo, 26, who defected to

Seattle, has signed with Chivas USA.
Galindo, who was granted political asylum, played a season and a half with USL
First Division club Seattle Sounders, for which he scored five goals in 1,023
minutes of play. He will take up Senior International slot for Chivas USA until
he receives his green card.
