Inter Miami CF Acquires No. 1 Spot in Allocation Ranking from Charlotte FC in Exchange for Christian Makoun
Inter Miami CF has acquired the No. 1 spot in the Major League Soccer (MLS) Allocation Ranking from Charlotte FC. In exchange, Inter Miami has traded its No. 9 spot in the Allocation Ranking and defender Christian Makoun. Inter Miami will retain a percentage of a future transfer of Makoun.
The Allocation Process is the mechanism used to determine which club has first priority to acquire a player listed on the Allocation Ranking List. This list will consist of select U.S. Men's National Team players, select youth U.S. National Team players, and/or former MLS players returning to MLS after joining a non-MLS club for an outgoing transfer fee of $500,000 or more. For more information, visit https://www.mlssoccer.com/news/mls-allocation-process.
The Allocation Ranking Order is set by taking the reverse order of the club's standings at the end of each MLS season, taking playoff performance into account, with the new expansion clubs at the top of the order. The rankings reset at the end of each League season.
"This transaction helps us position the club in a positive way ahead of potentially exciting moves that will strengthen the roster. We would like to thank Christian for his services in these past two years and wish him the best in the future," said Chief Soccer Officer and Sporting Director Chris Henderson.
Makoun joined Inter Miami in August 2019 as the club's third-ever signing. The Venezuelan went on to make 30 appearances, 25 of them starts, registering two goals.
