Sound Of Football Podcast 379 - The €126million kid


It takes more than a couple of months without any games to stop the juggernaut that is professional football. With marquee names like Eden Hazard and Antoine Griezmann going to new clubs, who would have predicted that a Portugese teenager would eclipse them as the most headline-grabbing transfer of the summer? While an undoubted talent, is the €126million that Atleti have paid Benfica for rookie Joao Felix a worthwhile investment when they've lost so many players in key positions.

Meanwhile, online sports news outlet, The Athletic, has been hoovering up journalistic talent in the UK as they look to make football writing pay. Will they succeed?

For lively debate on all this and more, join us for the start of the 11th season of your favourite football podcast.
