Today’s USMNT news includes Tyler Adams being linked with Manchester United. Yunus Musah has supported Vinicius Junior after the Brazilian suffered terrible racist abuse in La Liga. Also, Gio Reyna could become a Bundesliga champion this weekend if his Borussia Dortmund side defeats Mainz.
USMNT news: Tyler Adams to Manchester United
Tyler Adams’ Leeds United will be relegated this weekend unless they beat Tottenham Hotspur and other results go their way. Unfortunately, the USMNT midfielder will not be able to help his teammates as he has been injured since March.
If Leeds do go down then they will be forced to sell many of their best players. According to Football Insider, “Man United are among the teams keeping tabs on Adams, whose dynamism and energy in midfield has impressed their recruitment team.”
It would not be a popular move for the fans at Elland Road if Adams does move to Old Trafford. Leeds has a fierce rivalry with the Red Devils which dates back to the War of the Roses.
Adams has also been linked with Arsenal, Newcastle United and Atletico Madrid. It is a credit to the player that so many teams that will play in the Champions League next season are after him.
He has not played in European soccer’s premier competition since he was at RB Leipzig but if the rumors are true then Adams could make a dream transfer this summer.
USMNT news: Yunus Musah supports Vinicius Junior
Yunus Musah played for Valencia in their match against Real Madrid in which Vinicius Junior was targeted by racists. The American has shown his support for the Brazilian by posting on his Instagram account, “My support to Vinicius Junior and all the people who have been and are going through this in their lives. IF YOU’RE RACIST TO HIM YOU ARE RACIST TO ME!”
Valencia play their last home game of the season this weekend. However, the Mario Kempes stand will be shut as a punishment for their supporters’ appalling behaviour in the Real Madrid game. The section of the stadium will be closed for five games.
This could be Musah’s last home game for Valencia as teams including West Ham United are interested in signing the midfielder.
USMNT news: Gio Reyna to become German champion
Gio Reyna could win the Bundesliga if his Borussia Dortmund side beat Mainz at Signal Iduna Park tomorrow. It would be a huge victory if Dortmund can put an end to Bayern Munich’s dominance in the league which they have defended for 10 consecutive seasons.
The USMNT player has often been used as a super-sub by Edin Terzic. However, he has played his part by scoring seven goals in 21 Bundesliga matches.
It has been a mixed season for Reyna which included going to the World Cup. However, he was then caught in the middle of a scandal involving his parents and the then-USA head coach Gregg Berhalter. Winning the Bundesliga would be a perfect way to finish what would have been a tough campaign for Reyna.
