The talent of Mexican-American player Cade Cowell at the San Jose Earthquakes has piqued the interest of European heavyweights, and it is likely that he will make his way across the Atlantic sooner or later. Reports from journalist Lizzy Becherano of 90 min state that Newcastle and Bayern Munich have shown interest in the 19-year-old, but Milan and Juventus are currently leading the race to sign him in the summer.

Cowell excites European heaveyweights

Despite the interest from the European clubs, however, Cowell’s departure from San Jose may not be straightforward. The club will make every effort to keep him for at least one more year, as he still has three years left on his contract with the option of an additional year after that. However, the Earthquakes’ recent struggles in the MLS could work in Cowell’s favor, as they may accept his desire to seek new opportunities and allow him to leave if the right offer comes along.

It is worth noting that Cowell has also shone brightly in the CONCACAF Under 17 World Cup with the USA.

US and Mexico attentive to the future of Cade Cowell

The future of the San Jose Earthquakes player is also being closely monitored by the US Soccer federation. As a 19-year-old, he is eligible to play for both the USMNT and Mexico, so if he signs with Milan, Juventus, Bayern, or Newcastle, a tug-of-war between the federations for his services would likely ensue ahead of the 2026 World Cup.

Cowell was recently included in the USMNT camp for their matches against Serbia and Colombia, giving the American team an advantage in potentially calling him up for the Nations League in March. We’ll be watching closely.
