For a while now, I’ve been fascinated by Monchi. The Sevilla Director of Football is one of football’s best dealers – buying some of the world’s best talents for low prices and selling them for a high profit. Dani Alves, Ivan Rakitic, Grzegorz Krychowiak and Sergio Ramos are just a few of the stars who have passed through Sevilla, earning the club a major profit.
It’s a model that is often used in the stock market – buy low, sell high, but Monchi has applied it to football.
This summer, he is off to Roma, where it will be interesting to see how he will transfer his methods.
