Adu and the MLS A little over a month ago the talks were extremely serious and seemed to close to official. People were discussing and Freddy's advisor even mentioned the MLS buying his contract to keep him in the States until he is 18 years old and is eligible to play over seas (Europe). Would you rather.... 1) Have Freddy play four years in the MLS, fill stadiums across the country and gain first team experience. 2) See Freddy move to England where he will be training and playing reserve footie until his 18th birthday. However, the training and practice competition will be much more experienced filled and he will be surrounded by some of the best players in the world, ultimately benefitting the USMNT in the future. This is a tough decision in my book because either way I think the kid is going to be the best USMNT player we've had by the time his career is over but at the same time I think he can accomplish this quicker if he trains with the best. But I'm also an MLS fanatic and think it would be AMAZINGLY positive for the league to have him showcasing in the states.
