Loads of choices, he's not a normal human 33yr old I don't think. His body was tested and measured to say he's physically about 26. That being said, it will start to change and he'll have to adapt but he's more than capable.

Italy is perfect for him for loads of reasons:
Slight slower pace - suits the fact he is going to be getting older, maybe helps him lengthen his career.
HUGE money
Juventus squad is unreal, they'll piss the league a few times more with him.
He'll win lots of silverware and probably break some new records.
HUGE money.

He's the next galactico, without doubt.

Spot on on both counts.

The Ronaldo deal is good for all- both clubs and player.

No changes at Tottenham yet which means we are in for a flurry of activity once people start coming back from the World Cup. I think this year the transfer market shuts before the first game??

Alderweireld, Dembele, Rose the 3 most mentioned to depart. Levy will be able to drive a cool 120+ million there. Add in the 50 million apparently available I expect some big moves.

We'll see.

Saints have spent over 50 million quid and it's not even August.

He's the BEST defender in the world. We're clearly holding him back though so I implore any club that can match his potential to put in a bid.

It probably means Liverpool are buying Fraser Forster for 100M.

So that carries on the trend of managers winning the league then leaving the year after. I hope Mike isn't too attached to Pep.
