MLS MVP Players Power Rankings 2022 – The 30 best players to watch

The 2022 MLS season is close and a good number of questions being posed by fans of the elite soccer league in the United States have started coming up, such as:

  • Who are the best players in the MLS?
  • Who are the players for MLS MVP Award this 2022? 
  • Who tops the MLS Players Power Rankings for the new season?

The 2021 MLS season came with its unforgettable share of excitement as the best players in the MLS for the 2021 season showed what they were made of.

For instance, Valentín Castellanos won the MLS Golden Boot as well as the MLS Cup trophy. Carles Gil also came out tops as the MLS MVP Award winner in 2021. Therefore, they’ll be expected to maintain consistency as many eyes would be on them.

The MLS has seen a good number of quality imports from Africa, Europe, North America, ad South America and this has passed a culture of dynamism to the league. We’ve seen some of the best players in Europe move to the MLS and produce fireworks in recent years.

Major League Soccer is gradually becoming one of the soccer leagues that parades some of the best footballers in the world and this is a big plus for fans of soccer in the United States and is also a good one for the development of the league.

Ahead of the 2022 Major League Soccer season, there are many players that fans would want to watch out for. For instance, the exciting Lorenzo Insigne from Serie A outfit Napoli was heavily linked with a move to Toronto FC   but the move didn’t materialize.

It appears we’d see another Sebastian Giovinco era in the MLS in 2022. Regardless, find below a list of the 30 best players to watch out for in the MLS in 2022.
