Atlanta United is back in action as players reported to the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Training ground on Monday morning. The players will undergo physicals before taking the practice field on Tuesday.

The club also introduced new head coach Frank de Boer in a press conference on Monday.

The big question on everyone's mind following the MLS Cup winning season is the latest on Miguel Almiron, and whether he'll be with the team on the opening game roster. 

Vice President and Technical Director Carlos Bocanegra joined the Morning Show with John and Hugh on Monday to provide an update.

"Things come in, things change. We have to evaluate the situation at all times but at the moment he's here, and he's on our team."

Club president Darren Eales said back in October that they wouldn't consider a transfer fee for Almiron below $33 million.

What about new faces to the club? Bocanegra said they are hoping to bring in one fresh face before training really gets underway.

"We hope to bring in at least one more new face to the club. Ideally it would be sooner than later because we want to start the preseason preparations together leading into the CONCACAF Champions League; first game in February."
