Bernardo Silva to Manchester City: A Good Fit

Bernardo Silva to Manchester City: A Good Fit

The overhaul at Manchester City has begun and it is not an incoming transfer that is reflective of this. It is the number, quality, and age of the City players whose contract comes to an end at the end of June, which signal the change that Pep Guardiola is ushering in.

There are other teams far worse off but there is something incredibly amusing about watching Arsenal flatter to deceive and then ultimately stumble and fall continuously.
