MLS - Ricardo Pepi on move to European club: That time will come
While international and domestic supporters alike are interested in Ricardo Pepi's future, particularly when he could leave FC Dallas for a European club, the 18-year-old homegrown striker is now focused on MLS play.
The rising American international, who made his Concacaf debut in September's World Cup qualifiers, spent the winter training with Bundesliga heavyweights Bayern Munich, taking advantage of the two clubs' close connection. According to famous transfer writer Fabrizio Romano, he's also been extensively connected with Serie A clubs.
"Whenever that decision comes, thinking about the future and Europe, that time will come. But right now I am focused on the moment and FC Dallas and the next few games," Pepi told Luis Miguel Echegaray, host of CBS Sports' Que Golazo! podcast.
Despite the fact that a move does not appear to be forthcoming, Pepi continues to dream big. And he gets a lot of his ideas from two players in Germany's top division.
