I mean ... that would be star USWNT player for star USWNT, so by definition it's fair. Plus, from the Courage's point of view, Horan is one of the few midfielders in NWSL that's pretty much a like for like replacement for Sam Mewis. Honestly, it's the only one for one swap that makes sense.
It will probably end up as allocation money and picks. And Paul Riley has rubbished Goff’s “sources” regarding the trade.
