Now that he has left Torino after a season-long loan, Joe Hart may now sign for Arsenal now that Arsene Wenger has agreed to stay. I think that is a good fit. I said Kasper Schmeichel, but I feel Joe Hart is a better choice.
Props to Wenger for not being swayed by those who wanted him to leave. After 21 years at the helm nobody would have criticised him for saying enough is enough. He has signed a new two year contract and I am sure he will see it out. Has he a cheeky eye on Ferguson’s Man Utd tenure record? I think he has!
At 26, Riyhad Mahrez will, probably for the first time in his career, notice 30 approaching and after being loyal to Leicester and staying for a year after their historic win, he wants to move on. He has 4 – 6 years to make enough money to set him and his family up for life. He will do, but he has to move now. Practicality has a place in Football too, even for the big stars.
Chelsea youngster Dominic Solanke has joined Liverpool. At £3 million (estimated tribunal fee) this could be an amazing steal. He is one to watch. He was well thought of by Chelsea who did not want him to leave, but from Solanke’s point of view, how many Chelsea youngsters make the grade? Ask Reuben Loftus-Cheek. I think he is right to move.
