New York Red Bull coach Juan Carlos Osorio admits he expects to soon lose star striker Jozy Altidore to Europe.

Reading made an approach for the USA international last month and Real Madrid have also expressed interest.

"I've worked in the past with players like Jozy," the former Manchester City assistant Osorio told Sports Illustrated. "Shaun Wright-Phillips, Micah Richards, Steve Ireland... I think I can manage those situations." "Hopefully, he'll see we are doing something good here, and he'll want to stay for at least one season."
