I'm still upset Roma couldn't match PSG's offer for him. Prandelli's diatribe about letting him out of Serie A is a bit overblown considering the salary/transfer PSG paid and that the interest was there from other clubs. Also, with Ancellotti/Allegri, it seems that most Italian players are considering PSG about like a Serie A north club right now. It was common this summer to hear lists of possible destinations from players like Balzaretti etc that were the Italian bigs + PSG added.
Another player from that Pescara squad that's impressing is Lorenzo Insigne. It's still early, but he too, has stepped right in at 20 years old into Lavezzi's spot for Napoli and they haven't missed a beat.
Not a specific player, but all
the young Brazilians (Alex Teixeira, Fernandinho, Willian etc) for Shaktar looked very, very good along with Henrikh Mkhitaryan against Juventus in the CL. Both Juve and Chelsea will have their hands full in that group.
