Who Is Alex Alcalá? The Mexican Kid Who Destroyed Manchester United's U17 Defense

He plays for the LA Galaxy, but not for long.

You have probably already seen videos online of Alex Alcalá collecting Manchester United U17 players' souls. The 16-year-old Mexican kid was one of the biggest sensations in the last 2022 Generation adidas Cup, and we cannot stop watching his highlights.

In case you missed his talent, you don't need to be worried. Here it is:

Very impressive, don't you think? No wonder he has been called the "Mexican Messi" in the past.

Who is Alex Alcalá?

Alcalá is part of the U17 LA Galaxy squad, and despite his youth, he already has a professional contract with LA Galaxy and is also a recurrent member of the LA Galaxy II team. 

The winger has been called up to the U15 and U17 Mexican national teams on several occasions, but since he was born in the United States, he still could switch his international allegiance. 

When he was even younger, Alcalá trained with Barcelona and Manchester City. And this is not a minor detail in his resumé because the Premier League club was able to work a nifty agreement with the player, in which they can call dibs on Alcalá as soon as he turns 18 years old. 

Definetely, a name to keep in the books.
