FC Dallas has made two surprising trades just days before the season starts. They added two players, a forward and a defender, and they also saw the departure of a homegrown midfielder. Let's start with their first move of the week, the swap deal with Toronto FC.

Jimenez scored 9 goals and had 3 assists for Toronto in 33 appearances (27 of which were starts). Jesús Jiménez | FC Dallas

Goodbye, Servania-

Toronto FC acquired Brandon Servania in the deal. Although this was a good deal for both teams and should be a good deal for both players as well, it's hard to see Servania join another MLS team. Servania played in the FC Dallas academy, like Paxton Pomykal and Jesus Ferreira. He was signed in 2018 and over the course of his professional career with Dallas, scored 4 goals, had 7 assists, and played in a total of 67 games (43 starts) in MLS regular season.
