The MLS commissioner, Don Garber, has put plans in motion for a four-team expansion of the league in the near future, and Orlando City are amongst the sides being considered.
It is reported in some-circles that the mysterious samba maestro that City are hinting towards is in fact Real Madrid star Kaka.
The 31-year-old playmaker is close friends with Orlando City's billionaire owner, Flávio Augusto da Silva, and has been linked with a move to the MLS in previous transfer windows.
