It's difficult, in this corporate age, to play the clairvoyant and look into the lives of professional footballers.

However, this is what this article will try to do. To look into the mind of a professional footballer as best it can and then evaluate the club most suitable for that footballer. In this case, it will be a small case of make believe, imagining myself as a professional.
