20-YEAR-OLD US DEFENDER MATT MIAZGA HEADS FOR STAMFORD BRIDGE
Just weeks after Rising Star Jordon Morris had a chance at Europe opting to sign with Seattle Instead. Matt Miazga has that same chance as Chelsea F.C look to Sign the Wonder Kid Matt Miazga Spent last season with the New York Red Bulls making 38 apps for the Red Bulls scoring 1 goal during that time was one of the stand out stars in the MLS last season. Matt Miazga Had less than a year to run on his current contract with the Red Bulls, and given his desire to test himself overseas, New York was left with little choice but to sell now rather than lose him for nothing at the end of the 2016 MLS season. At only 20 years old Matt has a lot of potential. He is Expected to Join the London Giants on a very cheap bargain of $5 million transfer. Miazga also possesses a Polish passport, meaning he will not have to obtain a work permit.
Miazga had been in camp with the U.S. national team ahead of friendlies against Iceland on Jan. 31 and Canada on Feb. 5, but has already departed and is on his way to England where he will undergo a medical and then join up with his new club he is expect to arrive in London and Join his new Chelsea Teammates in the next few days. After lifting the Premier League Trophy one season ago largely due to a rock solid defense. The strong defense they had last season vanished in thin air Chelsea find themselves in 13th place on the league with 28pts but only5 points out of Europe. Despite being only 20 years old he should be able to help Chelsea’s fight to move into the top half of the table to try a reach they Europa league spot he was one of the best defenders in the MLS last season he should be able to make an impact in the premier league.
This move proves that there is hope the USA Development if the US wants to see success on the international level they need to have their best playing in Europe this is the exactly the right kind of move a young star such as Matt should be making now while Chelsea this season have been poor Chelsea F.C is a very very BIG club over the last 10 season Chelsea devolved into a power house having won 12 trophies since 2005 including 4 league titles 4 F.A Cups 3 League cups the Europa League as well as footballs highest honor capturing the Champions League in 2011 even though they have been very poor this season this is one of the biggest clubs in the world. Matt Miazga has been given a great opportunity to play not only in one of the biggest leagues in the world but in London on one of the biggest teams in the UK at 20 years old he hasn’t even tipped the iceberg of how good he could Potentially be. He will be making a statement for USA players on the European level very few amount of USA player play in Europe most of them come from the MLS. It is a great challenge for a youngster such as himself but unlike Morris he willing to take it. He may not be a big star right away but he will train hard and try to improve year day he will be going up against top class players in training such as Diego Costa Willian Oscar and Eden Hazard going up against guys like this will in the long run really help him become the best player he can possibly be. In games he will be up against the best in the world which also will help him make a name for himself in time. The best USA player need to be playing in top European leagues Matt is proof that the US can and will continue to develop in Europe. I think he could become a big star in the Premier League Someone I’m definitely going to keep my eye one. People will criticize Chelsea for making this move for an unknown but once he starts reaching into his potential this will be considered a great bargain in years to come
