MLS SuperDraft 2018: Date, time, how to watch, live updates

United now has 10 worldwide players, though one is on loan and won't count, and last season the league allowed each team eight internationals unless there were trades for more.

Los Angeles FC picked University of Akron defender Joao Moutinho first overall.

See how to watch the draft below. When we look at what we have, what we need and what is on offer, we think that there are very good options for us that can help us right away.

So, unless a player absolutely lit up the combine, United's draft strategy will likely center on adding depth or picking someone with trade value. Of all of the needs that the club has filled this off-season, one glaring one hole is the forward position.

For the fifth pick, the Chicago Fire gave the Loons $75,000 in general allocation money (GAM), $100,000 in target allocation money (TAM), the 15th pick in Friday's first round and goalkeeper Matt Lampson.

Now without a selection in the second and third rounds, Sporting Kansas City holds the No. 75 and No. 82 overall picks in the fourth and final round. "We've had people all over the place consolidating our information".

"We had to do a bit of juggling, a bit of maneuvering, and moved down to get the ones we wanted", United coach Adrian Heath said. "I'm also a pretty good passer as well".

The draft consists of four rounds with 23 picks in each round. The Galaxy will select 40th, 48th and 90th. Rounds three and four will be held via conference call at 2:00 p.m. ET on Sunday.
