Well before CONCACAF's incredible World Cup run, Marseille had a plan to start scouting in places not many of their Ligue 1 rivals were. Because ownership has pulled back spending, they are in the market for young, (and over time) high value players.
One of the players taking notice is 22 year old Harry Shipp. Shipp was scouted most recently in the All Star Homegrown Game on August 4th. There are more plans to see the youngster in action August 30th as the Fire take on FC Dallas.
While no other names have been confirmed, expect more players throughout the top leagues in the America's to be evaluated in the coming months.
