Dzeko better off staying at Roma

Perhaps it’s time Edin Dzeko accepts his fate is to remain at Roma and Lee Bushe believes it’s a better outcome for all concerned.

Losing Koulibaly would take Napoli backwards

Selling Kalidou Koulibaly would be a smart move financially for Napoli, but a devastating and unforced error on the sporting plane, argues Lee Bushe.

Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis spoke of his willingness to sell Kalidou Koulibaly this transfer window, stating that for the right price, another club was free to take him. That price is reported to be in the region of €75m, with Manchester City the forerunners for quite some time now.
