Despite having existed for less than a week, the team has agreed to a deal with the Portland Thorns to bring U.S. women’s national team superstar Alex Morgan to the club.

She now gets to live in the same city as her husband Portland Thorns and play for former USWNT coach Tom Sermanni.

As per Grant Wahl of SI:

In return for Morgan, Portland is set to receive Orlando’s first pick in the NWSL draft, two international slots, U.S. national team fullback Meghan Klingenberg (who’s expected to not be one of the two protected national team players from Houston) and likely Lindsay Horan as the first new allocation coming in from overseas if Horan decides to join the NWSL from PSG.

Women’s soccer is alive and well.
