Villarreal sign 18-year-old American ace

Spanish club Villarreal, who finished second in La Liga last season, have agreed to sign New York Red Bulls ace, Jozy Altidore, according to SkySports. The reported transfer fee is said to be $8million.

The Spanish outfit beat a host of top clubs for his signature that included the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Real Madrid.

“I’m just excited about a new challenge,” Altidore told the New York Times.

“And whether I stay with Villarreal or get loaned out, I’m excited to be going to play at a higher level.

“I’d like to play in the Olympics, but if the club might say no, but then again, that’s in the future.”

Villarreal already have one American in their team, former Manchester United player Giuseppe Rossi, 21.

US Soccer gets the transfer fee.

Red Bulls get nothing!

The Us is the only country in the world where the club does not get the transfer fee.

Wonder why our soccer development has struggled?

No incentive for clubs to produce players.
