I’ve followed this account for a while, and when I say ‘a while’, I mean, some years. And it’s been correct 70-80% of the time.
Arsenal is the preferred destination but the Twitter account says other clubs in China are interested.
Medhi Benatia, 31, whose current value is pegged at £13.5m is currently surplus requirements to the ‘Old Lady’ Juventus. The French-Morrocan joined Juventus from Bayern Münich in 2017 for around £14m and has only featured for the Italian giants six (6) times this season.
Laurent Koscielny’s back and seems ahead of Mustafi in the pecking order. And, the Koscielny – Sokratis partnership seems to work better than the Sokratis – Mustafi one.
Do you think we need Benatia now?
And if we do, can we afford him?
