While Atlanta United didn't win the CONCACAF Champions League and move on to face the best teams in the world, that hasn't slowed down Europe's powerhouse clubs from paying attention to United.

Atlanta United Analyst Jason Longhsore explains that of all the clubs in MLS, because of what United has done the past two seasons and because of some of the incredibly talented prospects currently on the team (Barco), they are the one MLS team that most international clubs are focusing on.

"It just continues growing the reputation internationally. Barco goes to U20 World Cup and is most talked about, and Almiron in Copa America is being linked to Real Madrid," Longshore states. "Atlanta United is THE club in the United States that's getting talked about internationally more than anyone else."
