Mexico’s future players are already gathering attention from some of the big European clubs, such as Marcelo Flores, who is one step away from debuting with Arsenal’s senior team and who is said to be in Xavi Hernández’s watch, as the Barcelona coach tries to build a team full of young bright stars.
But this player has yet to join a European club, although it’s said that he already has an agreement with Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, who is waiting for him to turn 18 to sign him to the Academy teams. For now, he belongs to LA Galaxy, where he joined the Academy when he was just a kid.
16-year-old Alex Alcalá has blown people’s minds with his technique and skills on the pitch, conditions that could easily earn him Mexico National Team’s number 10 in the near future. And although he already debuted with LA Galaxy II, LA Galaxy’s USL reserves team, he’s waiting for his chance to prove the world what he’s capable of.
Who is Alex Alcalá?
Born in Stockon, California, in 2005, Alcalá holds both Mexican and American nationalities, but he’s been open about wanting to defend Mexico National Team, as he even has been part of the U-15 and U-16 squads.
