Arsenal struggle to sell unwanted players

It’s a very important summer for Arsenal manager Unai Emery as he attempts to fix his squad ahead of the next season. Following a rather disappointing end to the last season, the pressure is on the Spaniard and his dealings this summer could go a long way in deciding his future at the club.

But it doesn’t look…

Have Real Madrid found a solution for Gareth Bale?

Gareth Bale has become a problematic figure at Real Madrid this summer. Following a turbulent season, the Welshman has fallen out of favour with fans, and he also doesn’t figure in the plans of head-coach Zinedine Zidane. It is apparent that the La Liga giants want to offload the 29-year-old, who is currently on £350,000 wages after tax. However, Los Blancos might find it difficult to sell Bale on a permanent deal this summer.

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…
