Report: Tyler Adams could be headed to RB Leipzig

New York Red Bulls midfielder Tyler Adams, considered the top young American in MLS, could make a move to the Red Bulls' sister club, RB Leipzig, this year, sources told Metro New York's Kristian Dyer.

Adams, 19, is the only player who has started all three games for the USA since its rebuilding work began after it failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup. He was also instrumental in the Red Bulls' run to the semifinals of the Concacaf Champions League.

Adams tied with Red Bulls II at the age of 16 in late 2015 and made his MLS debut in 2016. He played 24 MLS games in 2017, missing time for the 2017 Under-20 World Cup, where the USA reached the quarterfinals.

The Austrian energy drink company Red Bull owns the MLS team, RB Leipzig -- RB for "RasenBallsport" -- and Austrian team Red Bull Salzburg, among others. The Metro reported that Adams might by loaned by RB Leipzig to Salzburg, which reached the semifinals of the 2018 Europa League.

The only question was during which transfer window Adams would move -- during the summer or after the MLS season ends.

    Better there than MLS for Adams.

    If he has any chance of becoming a talented, top notch player, he has to get to Europe.

    So is this technically just a loan to Salzburg from MLS or an actual transfer out of MLS? Big difference....
