LOS ANGELES (AP) Los Angeles FC has acquired goal-scoring forward Christian Ramirez from Minnesota United FC.
LAFC traded $550,000 in cash Monday night in a deal that includes a potential $200,000 more depending on future performances by Ramirez, the leading goal-scorer in Minnesota United's franchise history.
Ramirez is a native of Garden Grove, California, who has been with Minnesota for five seasons. He stuck with the club during its rise from the NASL to MLS, and he scored the Loons' first MLS goal last season before finishing the season as its leading goal-scorer.
Ramirez had an early-season slump this year, but was still Minnesota's second-leading goal-scorer. He got two goals in the Loons' rout of LAFC last month, and he had three goals in three games before getting benched last weekend.
