Mailbag: Vieira at Sampdoria, Cagliari's Barella and Lille's strong start

Happy Saturday everyone! The Mailbag is back with Marcus Speller teeing up James Horncastle and Julien Laurens to hit your European football questions out of the park.

In this edition of the Mailbag James explains why Serie A is a good destination for young English talent in light of Ronaldo Vieira’s move to Sampdoria. James also has time to speak highly of Cagliari’s Nicolo Barella, while Julien talks us through Lille’s strong and surprising start to the season. And back in Paris, Julien gives reasons why Red Star FC might not be bothering PSG’s dominance of the city anytime soon.
