In the NEW episode, number 255, Kyle Fansler chats with ESPN’s Janusz Michallik and Kartik Krishnaiyer on the topic of the strength of American players in the transfer market.

Former player and current ESPN analyst Janusz Michallik dives into several topics with Kartik including:

• How MLS is changing the pendulum by selling major players to Europe but signing big stars to come back to the States,
• Americans that missed out on playing in Europe because MLS held them back,
• How the US is sitting on a goldmine of young talent,
• Whether MLS is selling players under the market rate,
• Will MLS ever be at the level that NASL was in its prime,
• Can Lorenzo Insigne still play for Italy while in MLS,
• How Insigne will help the US Men’s National Team players.
