Sheffield United Tactical Analysis News Opinion

According to a report that has been provided by The Sun, Willy Caballero could be about to make his way to the Championship and join Sheffield United.

The Blades will be looking to make an immediate return to the Premier League after suffering relegation last season, however life in England’s second-tier has gone far from swimmingly for the Yorkshire outfit.

Managed by Slavisa Jokanovic and one of the betting favourites for those who continue to follow the Championship live to return to the top flight, the club have been incredibly disappointing.

Sheffield United are yet to win a match this season and there has already been plenty of changes to key personnel.

The Bramall Lane outfit have already lost their main goalkeeper, with Aaron Ramsdale having sealed a move to struggling Arsenal, whilst there is also rumoured talk about the futures of Rhian Brewster and Oli Burke at the club.

It is evident that Jokanovic needs to continue to work with his squad and a move for a player who was done it all in the English game could well provide the perfect tonic.

Caballero is currently a free agent after leaving Chelsea at the end of the season and is thought to want to continue to test himself at the highest level possible, despite being 39.

The Argentine has helped Manchester City and Chelsea to major honours whilst being a part of their squads in recent seasons and it seems his availability has alerted Sheffield United.

It is claimed that a move for the experienced shot-stopper may have only arisen due to the Blades’ inability to sign Seny Dieng from Queens Park Rangers, with the ‘keeper thought to be too expensive.

QPR might feel that they are justified to place a high valuation upon his head as he has attracted interest from West Ham United and Crystal Palace in the past, whilst he has been instrumental in helping the Rs to be placed as high as they are in the Championship currently.

Cabellero would be an excellent option to try and sign instead as he will not cost a penny in transfer fees, although a player of his experience and ability might hurt Sheffield United financially in regards to the salary that he may demand.

However, it could be the difference between winning promotion or staying in the Championship for another season. With the money that arrived from the Ramsdale departure, it might just be worth investing it in the veteran.
