Union Academy Player Chris Gomez Set For Trials With Malaga, Sevilla

The youth player tweeted about his opportunities with two La Liga clubs in the next month.

A member of the Philadelphia Union academy system has lined up two huge opportunities for himself in February. Chris Gomez, who has played for New Jersey's Player Development Academy, tweeted about heading to Spain next month in order to take advantage of trials with two La Liga Clubs.

The under-15 United States Men's Youth National Team defender was extended offers from both Malaga CF and Sevilla FC to trial with the clubs. He sent a happy message out to his twitter followers about the chance to possibly sign with two of the top teams in Spain - although Sevilla has started off poorly this year and sits in 12th place, unlike Malaga, which has held a Europa League spot for most of the season.

As of the writing of this article, the Brotherly Game could not confirm or deny Gomez's status as a Home Grown Player prospect. Major League Soccer rules stipulate that any player who plays for a youth national team prior to participating in a club's academy system for at least a year, among other qualifiers.
