Age: 24

Contract Expires: 2022

Moutinho is far and away the most likely departure for Orlando City this season, and that's a difficult blow for this current roster. In August, MLSSoccer.com's Tom Bogert reported that Moutinho had significant European interest and the Portuguese defender could be on his way across the Atlantic this winter.

The former No. 1 overall SuperDraft pick's contract expires this winter and Orlando has been unable to sign its left back to an extension. Unless things change dramatically soon, the best left back in club history will almost certainly be plying his trade elsewhere in 2023.
