Perhaps it is Gerardo Martino’s Tatalanta that has piqued the interest of the Argentine football fan but this attention is dwarfed in comparison with the eye now being cast in the opposite direction, towards Argentina’s Primera Division, as a rich hunting ground for MLS clubs.

Argentina is the greatest exporter of footballers in the world and while there were examples like Marcelo Herrera, Beto Naveda or Diego Soñora in the 1990s, they were few and far between. Football in the United States today is dramatically different, so too in Argentina, but in 2017, Argentinians are now the third most represented nationality in the league behind Americans and Canadians.
