The soon-to-be RB Leipzig midfielder talked to Christian Pulisic and Weston McKennie before he decided his move

19-year-old midfielder Tyler Adams will join RB Leipzig in the German Bundesliga this January.

But before signing for his new team, he talked to his fellow Americans: Christian Pulisic and Weston McKennie.

“I spoke to Christian Pulisic and Weston McKennie about the league while we were with the national team,” he was quoted by the Bundesliga website.

“They’re both good friends of mine. It won’t be easy to adapt, but the Bundesliga is well known for giving young players a chance.”

“I was able to train here when I was 16 and even played against Bayern Munich with the youth team. From that moment on I knew I wanted to come here,” he remembered his time in Germany in the past.

“I’ve been learning German for five months. It’s very difficult but when I’m in Leipzig I want to speak it as well as possible.”
