After a long Xmas break, the Onefootball Podcast is back. On this week's episode Ian McCourt is joined by Matthew Frohlich, Alex Mott and Francesco Porzio. First up: Transfer madness. Zlatan Ibrahimovic madness. Erling Braut Haaland sanity. And why Ashley Young moving to Inter actually makes sense. After that. The last few weeks have throw up 1,000 talking points from the Premier League – yes, 1,000, we counted them all – but we have boiled them down to the most important 5 – or is it 6, or 7...
