New York City's moves of this week

Most notable move this week: NYCFC spent a huge figure, reportedly $8.5 million, to sign Romanian international attacker Alexandru Mitrita as the club's third DP. 

Biggest move so far: If Mitrita plays up to his fee, he'll be a huge success in the Bronx. The 23-year-old had 12 goals and four assists in 16 league matches in Romania before joining NYCFC.

Biggest question / hole: What formation will Dome Torrent play? How will he spread minutes around the midfield with so many deserving players? Will Mitrita (or Jesus Medina? Or Maxi Moralez?) excel at the false nine position, with no natural striker on the roster?

Rumors have it: The club have been linked with Spanish striker Carlitos, who led the Polish league in goals last season.

Projected starting XI (4-3-3 right to left): GK Sean Johnson – Anton Tinnerholm, Maxime Chanot, Alexander Callens, Ben Sweat – Alexander Ring, Keaton Parks, Maxi Moralez – Jesus Medina, Alexandru Mitrita, Ismael Tajouri-Shradi
