Monaco and Man Utd to compete for Golovin

Aleksandr Golovin became the apple of discord on the transfer market for clubs, wanting to strengthen their midfield line. CSKA player spent a well-balanced season, helped the Army Men qualify to the Champions League, thus causing interest of foreign club.

Manchester United are being called the first contenders on Golovin by British media. Jose Mourinho is looking for a replacement for Juan Mata, who fell out of favor with the Portuguese, being Chelsea player. The Special One came to observe Golovin on a friendly match between Austria and Russia, in which the Austrians got a minimal victory. Nevertheless, Morinho is ready to risk and pay 15 million pounds for the playmaker.

Golovin will have hard times in the EPL if the transfer takes place. A big role will be played by competition for a place in the line-up of the title claimant in England as well as a hard adaptation. Another issue is the footballer’s salary, which will be much higher after the move than the one Aleksandr gets in CSKA.

A similar situation is with other contenders in the person of Chelsea and Arsenal. The only option, where it would be easier for Golovin to play and adapt is Monaco. The princely club is managed by the Russian entrepreneur Dmitry Rybolovlev with controlling stake in his hands.

The Monegasques let Fabinho go to Liverpool in the summer and are risking not to keep Sidibe.Therefore the team requires squad strengthening. Monaco went by making money, as Porto previously did. The Frenchmen purchase young players, develop them, and then sell them to eminent giants for several dozen million.

 Once in environment with players like himself, Golovin would realize his potential and adapt in one of the five best championship in Europe. Whereas Aleksandr would have an opportunity to express himself in the Champions League, where Monaco has advanced for the past five seasons.
