One of the USMNT’s brightest prospects could be headed to Germany.

According to Kristian Dyer of Metro New York, Tyler Adams is on the verge of joining RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga.

Dyer’s report states that Adams would transfer from the New York Red Bulls to their sister club, RB Leipzig, as early as this summer and no later than after the current MLS season ends in the winter.

The 19-year-old burst onto the scene last season in MLS where he locked down a spot in the Red Bulls lineup and earned a handful of call-ups to the national team. Along with his few successful outings for the USMNT, he also represented the U.S. at the most recent U-20 World Cup last year.

Red Bull’s network of clubs all over the world tends to allow for these types of deals. RB Leipzig is the most popular of them all and for Adams to move their signifies that they feel he has the potential to net them a future transfer fee.

Dyer’s sources tell him that Adams may not stick with the Bundesliga side upon his arrival. A loan is possible with another Red Bull sister club, Red Bull Salzburg, being listed as potential destination.

What do you think of this possible move? Do you think it’s a good move for the youngster or would you rather him get out from under the Red Bull umbrella?

Update:

Sam Stejskal of MLSSoccer.com is reporting that Tyler Adams will join Jesse Marsch at RB Leipzig on a deal worth $5 million. According to Stejskal, Adams will be loaned back to the New York Red Bulls to complete the MLS season and join the Bundesliga club once New York finishes its season.
