His last match was in 2013. He is only one of the few people that have been recalled. The England manager, Gareth Southgate, is completely changing the squad that Roy Hodgson used.

WILL WENGER LEAVE ARSENAL?

Many rumours suggests that Arsene Wenger will leave Arsenal after almost 21 years of success at the club. The fans want him to go. They believe that he is not good enough. Idir stated, “Arsenal lost 3-1 to Liverpool. That is all I need to say.” If this carries on, Wenger could get Arsenal forgotten. He is upsetting the club and is in fear of losing their most important players; Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil. They are not be willing to extend their contracts. Some people say that he needs to leave now with his head held high. Others say that he should stay and carry on. The Arsenal board are looking to replace Wenger and have found possibilities. Their main target to replace Wenger is Massimiliano Allegri.

Chelsea are weighing up a summer bid to sign Everton stars Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley in a deal that will be worth about £100m.

Chelsea are analysing how the two Everton duo stars are playing as they are deciding if they would want to buy the two players in the summer break in the transfer window. The manager for Everton is still considering with this as if they do not have these two best players they might not do as well as this season. However the manager is still considering the offer as with all that money they are planning to buy a really good player in the premier league.

If this transfers works then the Chelsea manager is planning to offer Cesc Fabregas to Ac Milan. Not only that they might also put matic to Man utd.This is because matic is not needed but however man utd rally need him.

The Lure of the Chinese Super League

Carlos Tevez, Hulk and Oscar have all be lured to the Chinese Super League. Didier Drogba, the legend himself, was once lured to the Chinese Super League. The league now rivals the MLS. The question is, what makes the CSL so popular.

My first theory is the money. Real Madrid was recently offered  £256million for Cristiano Ronaldo to transfer to an unnamed Chinese club of which he’d get  £85million in wages per year and a portion of the transfer fee itself (from the signing-on fee). Furthermore, reports say that Carlos Tevez is the world’s most paid player after his move to Shanghai Shenhua earning an annual salary of £32.7million. This eclipses Ronaldo’s current wage of £26.9million per year, with which he is the official highest paid footballer in the world. Many other players have been given high wages when moving to the CSL, including Graziano Pelle who is now the sixth most paid player in the world after leaving Southampton for the CSL.

My second theory is that the Chinese Government are using it as a propaganda tool. Many people’s faith in a state relies in their faith for the (national) football team(s). The Chinese Government have noticed this. They have also noticed that their national football team is absolutely rubbish. Therefore, they Chinese Government have given a lot of money to their football teams to sign players. However, due to China’s overpopulation crisis, the Chinese Football Association has limited clubs to having only three non-Chinese players per game. Kind of a problem for the Chinese Government Propaganda Plan.

My third and final theory is that the players are just bored. European football has ruled over the world for eons. In Brazil, European football is loved so much that from the moment a child is born they are involved with football. Two new sports (foot volley and futsal) have sprung out from football in Brazil. Instead of saying footballers, people in the UK say play
ers. It is every boys’ (and some girls’) dream to play for a European club. Football in Europe basically rules the world. Therefore, it is quite obvious that some people would be bored and tired of the one thing everybody talks about. After all, when something rules the world, you probably will be tempted to resist.

All in all, the CSL is a rising superpower in the world of football and soon will have a large effect on European football. However, due to the vast amount of money being spent for players in the Chinese Super League, there is a high risk that the clubs in the CSL could go bankrupt.
