Handling transfer offers for young players is old hat for Berhalter and the Black & Gold staff. Earlier this summer, Columbus received a reported $3.9 million offer from Bristol City for goalkeeper Zack Steffen. The club turned down that offer as well.
While Berhalter wants to help players achieve their dreams that sometimes include moving beyond Major League Soccer, he also understands the team can’t accept any deal that comes their way; it has to make sense for all parties involved.

Trapp signed with his hometown MLS club, Columbus Crew as a Homegrown Player. After missing the early part of his first season while on international duty, he made his professional debut for the Crew on July 7, 2013, starting and playing the full ninety minutes in a 1–0 victory against Portland Timbers; he was named as the club’s man of the match after completing 86 percent of his passes. Trapp started the final sixteen matches of the season for Columbus, earning a postseason nod as the club’s Breakout Performer of the Year.
He was named as the vice-captain for Columbus, serving as understudy to Michael Parkhurst’s absence against Portland. Trapp wore the captain’s armband for the first time on May 17, 2014, captaining the Crew in Parkhurst’s absence against Portland. He became the first Homegrown Player in MLS history to wear the captain’s armband in a league fixture, and at 21 years old was the youngest captain in league history.

His first serious injury with Columbus was suffered in April, a concussion that saw him miss thirteen total matches stretching through the end of June. Trapp was named as a 2016 MLS All-Star, the first Homegrown Player in Crew SC history to be named as an all-star. He made the 22-man game day roster, coming on as a halftime substitute for Giovani dos Santos in the 2–1 defeat to Arsenal. Outside of that honor, however, 2016 was mostly a season of disappointment for both Trapp and Crew SC.
