USMNT abroad: Where are US players playing in the 2023/24 season?

As the United States tries to increase its profile in the world of soccer, more American players than ever are playing in the top leagues.

Here we run down where the USMNT’s top players are playing this season.

Christian Pulisic - AC Milan 

Many of the United States’ biggest stars have changed their club sides this summer and Christian Pulisic is no exception.

Captain America had four seasons at Chelsea, but after a number of changes at the Blues, he found his future lay elsewhere and transferred to Italian side AC Milan in June.

Pulisic scored 26 goals in 145 appearances in all competitions for Chelsea and got off the mark immediately at his new team Milan, finding the net in their 2-0 win over Bologna in their first game of the new Serie A season.

That goal made him the first American to score in three of Europe’s big five leagues after also netting in the Premier League and the Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund.

Weston McKennie - Juventus

Some of the United States’ squad endured disappointing seasons last time out, none more so than Weston McKennie.

The midfielder went on loan to Leeds from Juventus for the second half of the campaign, but the Whites were relegated from the Premier League to the Championship, with McKennie featuring in 20 games in total for the English club.

McKennie has returned from that spell to Juventus and came off the bench in their Serie A season opener, a 3-0 win against Udinese. 

Tyler Adams - Bournemouth

Tyler Adams was another American player that featured for Leeds last season as they were relegated to the Championship, first under Jesse Marsch and then Sam Allardyce.

The former RB Leipzig man played 26 times in all competitions for the Whites, but crucially was injured for the end of the season so was unable to contribute as the Yorkshire team lost their battle against the drop into the Championship.

Adams’ performances clearly caught the attention of other clubs and he seemed to be on the verge of moving to Chelsea this summer before that deal collapsed.

Bournemouth were able to take advantage of the situation and signed the 24-year-old on a five-year contract, keeping him in the Premier League.

Folarin Balogun - AS Monaco

One of the newest additions to the USMNT is Folarin Balogun, who despite being eligible to play for England and Nigeria, pledged allegiance to the country of his birth in May.

The 22-year-old scored 22 league goals on loan at Ligue 1 side Reims last season but found his options limited back at his parent club Arsenal, with Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah further up the pecking order.

A summer move away from the Gunners was always on the cards, and Ligue 1's AS Monaco forked over around $48.5 million to secure Balogun's services.

The American forward returns to where he had his most successful season and will be supplied by experienced playmakers including former Liverpool man Takumi Minamino.

Timothy Weah - Juventus

Timothy Weah’s father George had a storied history in Italian soccer, winning the Ballon D’Or when playing for Milan in 1995.

Now his son is aiming to follow in his footsteps after a summer move to Juventus from Lille.

The younger Weah scored six league goals in 89 appearances for Lille and that was enough to catch the eye of Italian giants Juve, as he joined Weston McKennie in their ranks.

Weah is one of a number of American stars plying their trade in Serie A this season, which will be a hotbed for USMNT talent.

Yunus Musah - AC Milan

One of many United States players to have changed clubs in the summer is Yunus Musah, who transferred from Spanish outfit Valencia to Serie A side AC Milan in August.

The 20-year-old from New York caught the eye with some strong performances at last year’s World Cup and after 94 league appearances and two goals for Valencia, has made the move to one of the biggest clubs in Italy.

There Musah will play alongside national team captain Christian Pulisic and he may also line up against compatriots Weston McKennie and Timothy Weah of Juventus in what are sure to be eagerly-anticipated fixtures on both sides of the Atlantic

Matt Turner - Nottingham Forest

The USMNT's starting goalkeeper moved from a backup role with Arsenal to take the No. 1 shirt at Nottingham Forest.

Turner made seven appearances in his one season at Arsenal.

He will be tasked with helping last season's 16th-placed team avoid a relegation battle this time around.

Auston Trusty - Sheffield United

Another American to move away from Arsenal, Trusty did so without making a competitive appearance for the Gunners.

The former Philadelphia Union and Colorado Rapids center back did not make the USMNT's 2022 World Cup squad, but working his way into a Premier League club's starting lineup would certainly get him on head coach Gregg Berhalter's radar.

Trusty signed for Arsenal in the summer of 2022 and spent the 2022/23 season on loan at Birmingham in the English Championship.

Brenden Aaronson - Union Berlin

One of the three Americans relegated from the Premier League with Leeds United last season, attacking midfielder Brenden Aaronson will not be plying his trade in England's second tier.

The former Philadelphia Union player was loaned out to a different Union: the German Bundesliga's Union Berlin.

Aaronson returns to the UEFA Champions League, where he will play for the first time since leaving RB Salzburg in the summer of 2022.

Antonee Robinson - Fulham

Nicknamed 'Jedi,' Robinson was one of the USMNT's most consistent players leading up to and during the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

The left back controlled his side of the pitch, providing width and verticality going forward.

He helped then-newly-promoted Fulham to a 10th-place finish in the Premier League last season, and he started 35 of the team's 38 matches.
