It’s going to be a case of a cash offer to make his current club Red Bull Leipzig, the Bundesliga surprise, who holds the rights to him for this upcoming season to allow him to leave. Twellman pointed to Boyd taking a tour of Red Bull Park as confirmation.
Boyd has accumulated 14 caps for the USMT since 2012 and at 25 is the type of young veteran any club would covet. After a 28-goal season for Austrian team Rapid Vienna, Leipzig acquired him. As one of many German-Americans, the result of U.S Servicemen stationed there, it was an easy call since Terrance, who was born in Bremen, Germany. In limited action, he tallied five goals for the RB Leipzig II team, one of the reasons he may be looking at a fellow Red Bull-owned team at this time.
Binks confirmed this as a possibility as she mentions choices to be decided on of which cash is the tiebreaker to convince anyone to let anyone out of a contract.
Since Leipzig has not utilized him much and Jurgen Klinsmann no longer coaching the U.S. National team, Boyd may see this as the best option in convincing Bruce Arena to bring him on and expand his use. This he can accomplish in MLS in New York City where the spotlight is the hottest.
