Carlton set to land McGovern, Fasolo

SEN Time On host Sam McClure says Carlton will secure the services of Adelaide’s Mitch McGovern and Collingwood’s Alex Fasolo during the upcoming trade period.

The Crows forward recently requested a trade from the club, while the out-of-contract Fasolo looks set to find a new home.

McClure explained how the deal involving McGovern and the Blues could take a little longer than expected to finalise.


“Mitch McGovern is going to be playing for Carlton next year, barring a catastrophe,” McClure told SEN’s Time On.

“The fact that Carlton didn’t get a priority pick has thrown a spanner in the works, but given the Blues have A) two picks in the 20s, and B) they’ve allowed to on-trade these pre-selections of mature-age picks.

“They will get the deal done, but it will take longer than first thought.

“Alex Fasolo will join Mitch McGovern at Carlton.

“He’s out of contract, he’s a free agent and he will join Carlton on a three-year deal.”
