According to reports by ESPN, the U16 Mexico player will currently partake in session with LA Galaxy’s academy upon completing the move.
Who is Alex Alcala?
Having being earmarked by both Barcelona and Manchester City with both the clubs calling him over for training session previously, Alex’s move to LA Galaxy would entail a buyout clause, one which City have first preference to. The Premier League club can trigger the clause once Alcala turns 18.
The move to LA Galaxy would be Alcala’s first professional contract as a player, one which could act as a watershed moment for his development. He’ll be under the tutelage of Juan Carlos Ortega, a coach known for developing players and transforming them into complete products.
Alcala who currently plays locally in California burst onto the stage owing to his searing speed and guile. The young player has an innate ability to work his way past tight spaces and beat players along with possessing a lethal left foot.

The move would come as sort of solace of LA Galaxy’s ardent supports after enduring a howler of 2020-21 sojourn in the MLS. The club ended up languishing in 10th spot in the Western Conference, offering absolutely nothing of substance all season long to subsequently lose out on the playoffs spot.
