[MLS TRANSACTIONS] FC Dallas continued to load up in midfield for its Western Conference playoff run with the acquisition of 22-year-old Argentine playmaker Mauro Diaz from River Plate. Real Salt Lake acquired center back Brandon McDonald from D.C. United, and the San Jose Earthquakes picked up El Salvador national team midfielder Jaime Alas on loan from Norway's Rosenborg.

Diaz debuted at 17 for River Plate and played on loan in 2012 at Union Espanola in Chile. He returned to River Plate for the 2013 Torneo Apertura and made two appearances. He's played 70 games for River Plate in five seasons but only 13 over the last three seasons.

“Mauro Diaz is a young prospect who fits the profile FC Dallas was looking to add,” FC Dallas technical director Fernando Clavijo said in a statement on Wednesday. “We’re excited to see how he will complement an already very talented offensive lineup as we head into the second half of the season with the goal of winning the MLS Cup.”

Earlier this month, FC Dallas signed 24-year-old Brazilian defensive midfielder Erick from  Portimonense of the Portuguese second division.

-- In need of help on its backline, where Mexican rookie Carlos Salcedo was the latest player to be sidelined following surgery to remove his gall bladder, Real Salt Lake acquired 27-year-old Brandon McDonald from D.C. United in exchange for a third-round pick in the 2014 SuperDraft and a conditional draft selection in the 2015 SuperDraft.

-- The San Jose Earthquakes picked up El Salvador national team midfielder Jaime Alas on loan from Norway's Rosenborg.

-- Montreal loaned midfielders Sinisa Ubiparipovic and Calum Mallace to the NASL's Minnesota United FC until the end of the MLS season.
