The United States continues to prepare for what could be a busy summer for them with the Concacaf Nations League and the Gold Cup mainly, however, they look more to the future and young people who aspire to become stars continue to emerge. The last one who's called to triumph and soon reach the Old Continent's the center-forward Cade Cowell, who has captured the attention in the MLS, and that even his own coach, Matías Almeyda, knows that he might not have it for a long time with them.

Cowell had already attracted attention with his quality, earning a place in Matías Almeyda's squad, but the last goal he scored against DC United was the greatest proof that the player could be ready at 17 to follow in Christian Pulisic and Giovanni Reyna footsteps.

The great level that he has shown has caused him to begin to be linked with Barcelona, however, Cowell does not want to go crazy and in an interview with 'Goal' he assured that at the moment a transfer to the Old Continent is not going through his head.

And it's that despite the fact that in San José, many point out that the footballer is being followed by viewers of the Spanish team, it's something that for the moment he does not want to take into account, as long as there's no formal offer. "I never think about that. I will think about that when the time comes. If a real offer comes from a European club, it will change things and we will begin to analyze, for now I focused on San Jose" acknowledged Cowell.

Almeyda dreams of Cowell aspiring to play in Europe and has even tried to be a teacher for the 17-year-old, who according to the Argentine "still has a lot to learn." The former Chivas coach shows him videos of the legendary Argentine player Claudio Paul Caniggia in training at the institution.

However, he hasn't been the only teacher of him, Chris Wondolowski has also been Cowell's mentor. "He's always helping me in training. He mentions every detail to me, if I do something right, if I do something wrong. He tells me that timing is very important in everything."
