Atlanta United midfielder Ezequiel Barco is away on national team duty for Argentina as he is participating in the U-20 World Cup. He's having quite a tournament already with two goals, a free-kick assist, and possibly the strike of the tournament.

Unfortunately for Atlanta United fans, there is some thought that if his quality at the tournament remains high, some European teams could come calling for him quicker than expected.

Jon Chuckery and Hugh Douglas discuss the idea that Barco may have played his last game for United.

Hugh opens the discussion by explaining why it could be a positive for United and the MLS..

"That gives more credibility to American soccer," said Douglas. "If someone comes in and gives you that offer you can't refuse, you gotta take it."

Chuckery agrees and also feels that it's a good business move.

"Part of the reason you bring these guys in is to make money off them and use that money to invest in other guys," said Chuckery.
