Calling Silva a breakout star this season is an understatement. He’s been a borderline phenom, and his ceiling keeps rising. Well, my money’s on that ceiling rising all the way to Europe. That sounded way more clever in my head.  A quick midfielder whose as deadly from distance as he is from six yards out, Silva is amongst the best in MLS in what he does. He could easily be a future commodity in any European League, as well as on the US Men’s National Team.
