The MLS academy teams, as well as the programs they usually have to boost the careers of the youth teams have helped several promising players to move to Europe at an early age, some of them to top teams but mostly to teams at the middle or bottom of the table.

But the fact that European teams are turning their heads to acquire talented players from a League that hasn’t characterized from being an exporter has made the Mexican Football Federation follow closely the Mexican American players.

It’s true that some of them, like Ricardo Pepi, have chosen to play for the Stars and Stripes instead of representing El Tri, but there’s other cases, like Julián Araujo, who already debuted with the Mexican national team, opening the doors for the players behind him to see that they can succeed in El Tri even if they weren’t formed in Mexico.

Bayern Munich is after the next Alphonso Davies

One of the most active leagues that pursue the addition of MLS academy team players is Bundesliga, as in the last few years they’ve acquired several players, including Ricardo Pepi, Tyler Adams, Joe Scally, Kevin Paredes, George Bello, Justin Che, and Alphonso Davies.

The next player on the list is Cruz Medina, a 15-year-old striker that currently plays for the Academy of San Jose Earthquakes. Even if he hasn’t signed a homegrown contract with the Quakes, he’s already playing with the U-17 squad.

His talent didn’t go unnoticed, and Bayern Munich invited him earlier this year to tryout with the Bavarians according to soccer journalist Grant Wahl, although Bayern is not the only interested team in him, as he’s been closely followed by RB Leipzig and Mainz 05.

Can he play for El Tri?

Even if Medina Cruz was born in the United States, he’s been raised on a Mexican household as his parents and grandparents were born in Mexico. Medina Cruz has been part of some USYNT U-17 camps although he hasn’t decided yet for which country he wants to play for.
