Four European Clubs Who Should Resist Selling Players This Summer

It’s almost accepted in football that ‘smaller’ clubs who have seen a bit of success will get raided during the summer months, forcing them to rebuild all over again. In a way, it’s a bit of shame. Who knows, for example, how far the Monaco team that won Ligue 1 in 2016/17 could have gone if they hadn’t been stripped down and sold for parts after that triumph? You can make an argument for reinvestment and renewal, like Ajax might do this summer, but often, they never catch the same…

The Gunners’ suspect backline was moved about at will by Hazard and co in…
