On paper Monaco should look like more of a sinking ship than Arsenal. They’re shipping out first team players left and right and it looks like they were willing to lose Lemar without replacing him.
I said the same about Mbappe. These guys all went on the journey of a lifetime last season with their title win and exceptional CL run. There’s no way after that high they decide to go and try to get 4th place and no CL at a club where the fans boo the manager.
You can understand why Bakayoko, Mendy, Mbappe, Silva all went where they did but Arsenal in 2017 isn’t somewhere I’d want to be tied to for the next 4-5 years.
I wonder what he’d have done if it was United offering big money for him.
