MLS (Major League Soccer) giants LA Galaxy have announced the signing of French winger Kevin Cabral just before the start of the 2021 season in the American top flight. The Frenchman has been signed as a designated player.

Cabral, 21, was officially announced as the new signing for MLS club LA Galaxy earlier on Thursday. The winger is the third designated player at LA Galaxy on the back of his transfer. He has been signed as a designated player. The new signing has signed a five-year deal at LA Galaxy.

Kevin Cabral started his career in the Paris Saint Germain (PSG) before moving to fellow French team Valenciennes four years ago. The young winger had an attacking output of 13 goals and 10 assists in 70 games for Valenciennes while the club was in the second tier of French football. Valenciennes are still in the second level of club football in France.

New LA Galaxy signing Cabral has scored seven league goals for Valenciennes this season in addition to five assists. He left the French team to sign for MLS giants LA Galaxy as one of their designated players.

LA Galaxy have three designated players on their books now. Apart from Kevin Cabral, the Mexican duo of Javier Hernandez ‘Chicharito' and Jonathan Dos Santos are also designated players at the MLS club.

Ahead of the 2021 MLS season, LA Galaxy have focused on strengthening their rearguard. LA Galaxy had signed three defenders earlier in the window before adding two wingers including the aforementioned Cabral.

Defenders Oneal Fisher, Jorge Villafana and Derrick Williams have all joined LA Galaxy before the start of the new season. The club signed winger Samuel Grandsir from French team AS Monaco in March and have now added another winger in Cabral this month.
