Former MLS Superdraft 17th overall pick by New York Red Bulls is now playing for Villareal CF in Spain. On June 2008 Villareal bought Altidore for â‚¬6.4 million, a record transfer fee for an American football player.
Real Madrid was first reported interested in signing the kid. According to rumors he turned it down because Jozy is a big Barcelona fan. Anyone could verify this?
Altidore is full of promises, he may surpass Donovan or McBride in popularity and numbers.
