Sorry to be the bearer of bad news

Napoli’s team will be broken up. Nigerian frontman Victor Osimhen will be leaving, it’s not a case of if, but rather when. English giants Manchester United and Chelsea are the teams said to be vying for his signature.

Georgia winger Khvicha Kvaratskhelia has been in devastating form since joining the Naples club in the summer. South Korean centre-back Kim Min-Jae who replaced club legend Kalidou Koullibally has settled into life in Italy very well.

It has happened with the Italian side in the past when they have lost players like Edison Cavani to name some and even Maurizio Sarri their manager at the time too.

Other good teams fall apart too, for example, Benfica who have been all-conquering in the Primera Liga have lost their talismanic midfielder, Enzo Fernandez.

In the case of the Portuguese giants, this is something that has happened time and time again. Darwin Nunez, Victor Lindelof, Angel Di Maria, Ederson, Ruben Diaz and they’re so many more.

Fierce rivals are the same. Liverpool’s Luis Diaz and Diaz’s countryman Radamel Falcao also left Portugal for with the greatest respect a bigger club. It must be hard for the fans to know that a player they have fallen in love with, is almost certain to leave if the price is right.

The Dutch league, (the Eredivisie) sides such as Feyenoord, PSV Eindhoven and Ajax to have to adopt this method which sees a big turnover of players, players sold to English clubs. The 2019 side that Ajax had which has been seen as one of the best, was duly broken up.

Players such as Frekkie De Jong, Donny Van De Beek as well as Matthijs de Ligt were all sold for healthy transfer fees.

Such is the power of the Premier League can you blame them? The TV deals the sponsorships that clubs like Man United and Chelsea, give them an advantage over other clubs in Europe.

Brazilian star Anthony was sold by the Amsterdam giants Ajax to Manchester United, for a fee in the region of £90 million.

The blunt reality is that no club outside of England can afford that kind of money. Maybe Real Madrid and Bayern Munich can, but these days both opt for more conservative transfer strategies.

English clubs such as Leicester have had to adopt this model of high player turn over too. The Foxes’ 2016 Premier League winning team has moved as they’ve been sold.
