Inspired by the recent American success in Europe, we want to check in with our Academy graduates and see how these alums are doing across the pond.
There may be a few players that you never knew were once a hoop.
Still killing it at Juve, Weston Mckennie seems to be getting better and better for Andre Pirlo’s Juventus side. Since our last article, Weston has permanently signed to Juventus from Schalke for a reported fee of around $20 million.
On the season, Mckennie has 5 goals and 2 assists in 35 games. Some say he is the best in-form American out there currently, do you agree?
Recently loaned to TSG Hoffenheim from Bayern Munich, Richards hasn’t missed a beat since joining the midtable German side. Richards has slid into a starting role for Hoffenheim and has played the majority of minutes available since January.
Chris Richards looks to be the hottest USMNT center-back prospect right now and has recently been called up to the national team for the March friendlies.
Is he in Bayern’s future plans? Is there a permanent transfer on the horizon for Chris? Should be a fun one to watch for FCD and USMNT fans alike.
Good morning, ??!

Ah, Reggie. Still destroying the Portuguese league like last time we spoke.
Cannon is still an essential player for Boavista and has even registered an assist. He’ll be with the US national team this week as well.
A left-back for QPR in the English Championship. 21 appearances on the season.
Funes Mori Brothers
Rogelio currently has 14 goals and 4 assists in 27 games for Monterrey.
His brother, Romiro, has 15 appearances for Villareal this season.
1 goal in 22 appearances in the Portuguese second division for Porto B.

Shaft Brewer Jr
With Fram Larvik, a third division side in Norway
QPR in England. Charlie has made a few last-minute appearances as of late.
Jonathan Tomkinson, a player who may not be on everyone’s radar, has been going the distance for Norwich’s U23 team in the Premier League 2.
Playing most minutes available at CB for the team, will we see a step up into the big leagues for Tomkinson soon?
Starting outside back role for second-division Spanish side Tenerife
Oh BBB. Since we last spoke, Bryan Reynolds completed his record-breaking move to AS Roma in Italy, as I’m sure everyone has heard by now. Bryan has since made his first appearance in Serie A against Parma, coming on in the 60th minute.
BR19 lives on with Reynolds snagging the #19 jersey at Roma! Every FCD fan should be keeping an eye on the Roma games.
Bryan is currently with the USMNT for their March friendlies.
Taking those first steps… ?
Congratulations to Bryan Reynolds on making his debut for the club at the weekend! ?

Since loaned out to SKN St. Polten in the Austrian first division, Brandon has appeared three times for the club (starting twice). In a stacked FCD midfield this season, it was no surprise to see the young midfielder give it a go in Europe.
The latest player to profit off of the FC Dallas-Bayern Munich partnership, Justin Che is on loan at their U19 team. Similar to Chris Richards in many ways, Justin looks to be the next player to complete a transfer to Germany.
And the list grows every transfer window.
Does anyone surprise you?
