Inter mustn't let Godin go so easily

Letting Diego Godin go to Cagliari practically for free after just one year at San Siro could be a mistake for Inter, insists Richard Hall.

Even at 34 years of age, Diego Godin has a lot to offer. When Cagliari confirmed they were in negotiations for the Uruguayan, there were no protests at Inter’s training ground. It has been generally accepted that, at his age and with his excessive salary, the natural thing to do it so let him move on, yet there is a nagging doubt that Inter should either kept him for one more year, or at least try to renegotiate his contract. He was an important feature in the latter half of the season and perhaps his influence was underrated.

Suarez a sideways step for Juventus

Luis Suarez still has plenty to offer Juventus, although a waning physical capacity is a hindrance at the highest level, argues Owen Diana.

The times they are a-changin’ at the top of European football, but Juventus seem content to sit still. Even though The Old Lady have advanced in their efforts to revitalize an aging squad with the summer acquisitions of Arthur Melo and Weston McKennie, those promising midfield pickups will all be for naught if they finalize a deal for Barcelona forward Luis Suarez. While there can be no doubting the Uruguayan’s quality, his incorporation brings the Turin titans no closer to a long-awaited third Champions League title.
