Cyle Larin

I was just reading on Twitter that he’s linked to a team in Germany. Apparently Zulte will buy him from Besiktas and move him to an unnamed German team. More info on the Canucks Abroad thread.

Some baseless speculation ...just for fun.

Perhaps the unnamed club is a 2.Bundesliga promotion candidate? 

  • Stuttgart
    • Japan international playing there on loan from Saint Truiden (Belgium).
    • Belgian player Orel Mangala plays there
    • Vice Captain Mario Gomez played for Besiktas back in 2015-16
  • Arminia Bielefeld 
    • no obvious link to Belgium or Turkey
  • Hamburg
    • no obvious link to Belgium or Turkey

Perhaps it is Stuttgart? 

I don't see the unnamed club being in the top flight. Possible, but I doubt it. And I also don't think any of the 2.Bundesliga clubs outside of the promotion race would be in the market for him.

Then Stuttgart makes the most sense

Interesting theory, maybe one of the lower level Bundesliga would consider him if the price is right. Lots of teams struggle for goals and might consider him. 

Sportsnet might be willing to show more Bundesliga matches on their “non-world” channel if more Canadians show up in the league with Phonzie.

Me I think Larin should stay in Belguim   maybe move to a bigger Club there like a Club Brugge or Anderlecht  just for the reason of more plating time and confidence

Though I don’t believe it, the links are really spreading 

 

I hope this doesn’t have any truth to it. I’m still hoping he ends up in Germany.

edit- I added a screenshot of the story.

Salary of 1.7 Euro??  I might move to Moscow for that.  

I watch quite a bit of RPL and it's decent quality football at the top half. They stream free matches on YouTube. I support Zenit but I follow most of the Russian teams in Europe as well. It wasn't a good year for Russian football in Europe but like I said the top half of the table has some quality squads

Cyle Larin to CSKA Moscow and playing in Russia is actually pretty damn good...Russian league football is actually pretty good...in fact it is just as good as German, Italian, French, Spanish or English football

No, it’s not.

A couple websites I looked up only show CSKA having 3 forwards. 2 of which are u20 academy players. They will more than likely be in the Europa league next season so there will be a lot of games to play. They also regularly make the championship league group stage.

Plus if he goes to CSKA he will at least get to experience Champions League football but even if he doesn't, he will get to experience Europa League football. Either way going to CSKA is a good move.

Yes, for sure.  But in addition to that, he'll also at least get Europa experience or, if everything goes well, Champions league experience!

But thinking about it, with going to the Russian Premier League also comes racism and given everything that has been going on in the world (ie. George Floyd...but also all other incidents) it has affected the football world. Footballers now are speaking out about this very, very serious issue and Larin going to a league like Russia...thinking about it I don't know if now going there really is the best idea.

Not following your logic here...

If anything there probably isn't a better time to go.  These events aren't galvanizing racists..

Yeah I noticed that too. Very lacking on forward depth for a club of that size. Quite surprising. Larin would seem to be the big forward signing for them, so that's a chance for him to be THE guy again, a challenge he'd probably relish. 

I don't watch Russian football that often, but based on what I know the big 5 or 6 are better than MLS, with the rest at a similar level. This would be a slight step up from Belgium.

The most valuable centre forward at CSKA is Fedor Chalov, two-time capped 22 year old Russian international. He only scored 5 league goals this year (plus 1 in Europa league), but won the Golden Boot the prior campaign with 15 goals. 

Both him and Larin have spent a bit of time as second forwards, so it would be interesting to see whether they'll be rivals or playing together. Considering their lack of forward depth I would bet on the latter.

CSKA is a pretty storied franchise in Russia and the level of play is pretty good.  He would be regularly playing in Champions League which is always good.

It’s weird that they’re going after him, seemed to come out of know where.

For that kind of salary- why not right?  I hope it works out.
