AS.com is reporting that Real Madrid are interested in signing New York Red Bulls forward Jozy Altidore in the winter transfer period.
Altidore has been known to MLS fans for a few years, but burst onto the international stage at the U-20 World Cup in Canada this summer. His considerable size, strength, and speed make him a formidable target for any team, and at just 18 years of age he could become the greatest striker the US has ever produced.
AS reporters are claiming that Altidore has a chance to be the next Freddie Kanoute, a striker whose aerial ability and daft footwork have brought him scoring and European titles most recently with Sevilla.
