U.S. men's national team 20-year-old center back Matt Miazga appears on his way to Chelsea, capping a big week of player movement news for American soccer.

SI's Grant Wahl joined SI Now to discuss the development, which will reportedly cost $5 million (75% of which will go to the New York Red Bulls) in transfer fees for the reigning Premier League champion. What does it mean for the player and for U.S. Soccer as a whole? In a surprising development going the other way, reports suggest that Tim Howard will be leaving Everton at season's end and returning to where his career started–MLS. Why, why Colorado and why now?

Wahl also takes aim at the game of the weekend in Europe: Barcelona vs. Atletico Madrid. How much of an impact will this result, even in January, have on the final standings in La Liga?

Watch the full interview in the video above.
