Minnesota United’s 2022 season came to a crashing end last night, with the Loons losing a penalty shootout to FC Dallas in the first round of the playoffs. Next season is a long time away, but still, it’s time to think about the offseason - and it starts with knowing who’ll be back next year.

Here’s a snapshot of the Loons’ roster situation for 2023. I’ve compiled this list from various sources, and will update if more information comes out.
