When has he ever shown that he can succeed at the international level? This is all conjecture.


Really?

Hopefully this is a blessing in disguise...the EPL has a HORRIBLE track record of developing players compared to other European leagues. Almost all of the best players in the Premier League were developed elsewhere and came to England as established products. Also, I think it's too competitive for Juan...he's not quite good enough (yet). I'd like to see him play in Holland or France. Well, ideally, he would go to Argentina or Brazil, which are arguably the best leagues in the world for player development and fit his style very well. But it's hard to convince a kid to turn down European money.

@Navi8132

are you serious? Agudelo has shown every time he has worn the USMNT shirt. He isn't yet 21, I guarantee he will have plenty of offers. His combination of skill, vision, and finishing ability is rare for a US player. Be patient my son, Agudelo will come good for the USMNT

I think Holland would be a great transition league for him to start to establish his European credentials.

I think there might have been a chance of Agudelo going to Stoke if Klinsmann had called up Agudelo for these recent november frendlies. However if you have a guy who hasnt been called up since January and hasnt been called up for any of the friendlies or WCQ's then its no suprise the home office ruled against Agudelo. I think its a blessing in disguise. I am not sure if it would have been a good idea for him to go to england in the first place. I think holland would have been a good place to develop he is still not an unfinished product.

More details coming out: Kenny Dalglish, Klinsmann, and Hughes were there to argue in his favor.

I still think A German club will swoop in for him. Hertha Berlin, Nurnberg, Schalke all need a striker.

He's definitely worthy of going to Europe. Whenever and wherever he goes, it'll be great to watch him grow as a player.

So many options for him.

I am all for Bundesliga. I would love for more Americans to get involved in that league. I also wouldn't mind seeing more go to Spain but that is not likely to happen right now.

After seen Bradley develop in Italy I wouldnt mind if our Midfielder went to Italy.
Young Goal Scorer to Holland.
Technical player with skill sets to Spain.
How would players like Agudelo and Iceman fair in Spain?

The criteria stated that they must be competitive matches...if he had played in most of the Gold Cup matches, he'd have been in.

Valencia is interesting but I don't know if he can unseat they're current strikers.

Also says they face competition from Holland, Portugal, and France.

Agudelo has the talent to prevail in several top teams in europe. Is amazing how Ne revolution are much better than many clubs that want him in europe but then again the $ and competition is what matters. So many examples, diskerud, Lijah, chandler, fabian, Johansson, altidore, beasley, cameron ext.. ,amy of the teams they play at are around the level of top mls teams or below, But of course the competition is higher and the $ is better.

Interest in Agudelo heating up. Stay tuned for the next few weeks.

Teams from Spain, Portugal, Holland, and France are all showing a high interest.
