Fredua Koranteng "Freddy" Adu (born 2 June 1989 in Tema, Ghana) is a Ghanaian-American soccer striker and attacking midfielder. He most recently played for the United States U-20 national team and Real Salt Lake of Major League Soccer, and has now signed to play for Portuguese side S.L. Benfica.

At the age of 14, Adu became the youngest American athlete in over 100 years to sign a major league pro contract - in any team sport - when he was chosen by DC United as the number one overall pick in the 2004 MLS SuperDraft, and won the MLS Cup title with them that year.

Prior to the 2007 MLS season, he was traded to Real Salt Lake, and was also captain of the U-20 United States men's national team in the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup. After the conclusion of that tournament, Benfica of the Portugal first division secured Adu's rights from MLS for a transfer fee of $2 million USD. On 31 July, the signing was completed and he trained with the team in Lisbon. Personal information
