USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter has confirmed that Bayern Munich want to sign on-loan teenager Justin Che to a permanent deal.
Justin has incredible potential and made such a great impression at Sabener Strasse that Munich want to keep him,"
Berhalter told Sport Bild.
"Bayern are a great club and it is a great sign when those in charge believe in this young player and plan for the future with him.
"It's a great honour for Justin and a strong symbol for us as a U.S. team. If Justin continues to play at Bayern, it will help him develop and improve the quality of our national team."
In addition to Che, Schalke striker Matthew Hoppe was called up to the national team for the first time.
Hoppe shone well this season, scoring six goals, although his side were relegated to the second division.
Matthew just played a strong season for a young player,
" Berhalter said of the 20-year-old. "
I really like his development
