bruuuh, I spit my tea


josedyp

OP’s translation is wrong. Melchor didn’t say that the decision was made, he actually said that IF Mbappe signs with Madrid then those are the two likely scenarios.


zinewire

This is correct and important to note.


naruto2omer

And rather useless, it's the same thing as all the posts before, nothing has changed no?


Fulify

5 posts per hour on this topic for weeks now with always the same content. This kind of journalism is so pathetic, I don't know how they could reach a new low. Can't they just wait for him to communicate facts instead of writing useless news out of nothing?


LondonNoodles

Common modern journalism, Newspaper A starts posting a hypothetical article, Newspaper B cites this article making the title slightly ambiguous, Newspapers C, D, E, F... cite article B with their own interpretation, Newspaper A can now cite any newspaper to make it look like the situation has changed.


kostajepaosmosta

That's 2 highly reliable sources confirming it. Finally its over


Thhunderwing

What tier is Melchor Ruiz?


VDV23

T1 alongside Arancha and JLS. They're basically club mouthpieces so if he has been given that info/allowed to post it publicaly then it has to be a done deal.


TeaAndCrumpetGhoul

My heart won't beat again, it's killing me.


hokagesamatobirama

He’s the most reliable journalist for Madrid, basically a mouthpiece for the club.


GokuSanIchi

You don't need any source to be honest. I'm surprised no one talked about it but Mbappé told himself to journalists at UNFP that he was gonna give his decision before 28th may when our NT assemble. So it's pretty obvious he will announce it before PSG last match.


LaundryMann

That was a top post on this sub.


GokuSanIchi

About his decision to announce it before the NT reunion? Okay my bad then, I missed that \^\^.


iredcoat7

Meanwhile Sky Sports are reporting “Mbappe to Liverpool” lmao


josedyp

OP’s translation is wrong. Melchor didn’t say that the decision was made, he actually said that IF Mbappe signs with Madrid then those are the two likely scenarios.


okktavia

Glad he chooses his dream club over money.


_Sylph_

Well, he got a buttload of money from us anyways if the rumour payout is true. It's not like we are underpaying him.


koltzito

yea im sure he is gonna play for a bag of chips


ThePr1d3

He's really going isn't he ? :(


LeCowboySolitaire

Even as a Lyon fan it's bothering me so fucking much. I was hoping he could stay at PSG and build his legend there., in France. I can't stand Real Madrid, souless club with bandwagoners as fans.


Revolutionis_Myname

Yeah, as opposed to PSG, real club with real fans


LeCowboySolitaire

Yup


elburrito1

Psg have loads of real fans. They did exist before 2011 you know.


No-Assumption8024

As opposed to Real Madrid, the club famously founded in 2011.


elburrito1

Oh, my bad, I didnt read the full parent comment


Kaamelott

To be very fair, in that case, Madrid does too. (And I'm of fan of neither)


KOKO69BISHES

ok hear me out, i dont think plastics go to psg simply because they play in Ligue 1 and are called soulless. Plastics tend to go for teams with history so they feel better about themselves, and dont wanna support a Ligue 1 club because with respect, nobody bar frenchmen cares about Ligue 1. Real definitely has way more "actual" fans than PSG, but they also for sure have way more plastics


zikaa_sosa

Soulless club? 😭😭😭


Otenus

He’s joking


celigodtko

What if he isnt joking?


LeCowboySolitaire

I'm not


anupamkumar47

Who is the other one?


kostajepaosmosta

Ornstein


vqvq

PSG will be hunting for Mbappe's replacement, this summer transfer window will be wild.


Mrmoi356

They can take Nketiah for 200


Superb-Confidence-44

So you can invest those in more Elneny's and Xhaka's


Mrmoi356

That's at least 20 Xhaka's. If you include our current Xhaka, we're only 1 short off a team of Xhakas.


StarlordPunk

11 to play one week, 11 to play the next when the first team are all suspended


mehrabrym

Benzema to PSG Here we go. Alternatively, Cristiano Ronaldo to join PSG and finally have a teamup with Messi.


vqvq

Found a daily mail reporter.


Minsteliser123

Don't think either would wanna play with the other, and as a front line they wouldn't work


gruka_45

Ronaldo or maybe Salah/Mane?


CataclysmClive

Lewa is keen to leave Bayern...


Legendarybbc15

Mo Salah, here we go


Jolly-Literature1226

Yes please


jcald60

Dembele on a massive contract coming up. Should have signed ronaldo and appointed zidane maybe that would have convinced mbappe


manualbackscratcher

Tic Tac Tic Tac


downfallndirtydeeds

I vote for the one that ends this saga the soonest


ParisLake2

Announce it before Saturday so we get it over with. Ffs man.


Mane_Firmino_Salah

On the + side. You might be able to bring in a number of players, instead of a direct replacement.


mehrabrym

PSG to bring in Benzema in an uno reverse move.


Yo-SwiggitySwag

1 billion release clause. PAGA


mehrabrym

And FIFA22 tells me $1 billion release clause is unrealistic.


Narretz

It's not too late to come to Besiktas


TedEBagwell

Besiktas in 2025 via Sligo Rovers until then.


BILLY2SAM

>It's not too late to come to Besiktas HAHA Did you flip a r/Soccer coin between this and a 'Big Sam' joke? Downvote away, 13 year olds


theglasscase

This exchange is a chilling reminder of how many times 'Mboopi' is going to be used in the 'Mbappe joins Real Madrid' thread.


Narretz

Since Big Sam isn't managing we can't make this joke. However, I can substitute with a "r/soccer let's buy Mbappe, I throw in tree fiddy and bag of crisps" what do you think?


BILLY2SAM

>what do you think? I think no one in the real world will ever call you funny


Narretz

This isn't the real world


wutend159

wish him good luck there


Mr_XemiReR

Somebody claimed that he would announce his decision to leave PSG this week, but would say that he's joining Madrid only after we have made it official which will happen after the UCL final.


neandertales

I feel he needs to say a proper goodbye to PSG.. I think players should do that as much as possible, both for themselves and for the fans.


studgebro

Waiting till after the CL final to see if Liverpool win it and chooses to join us for thirty quid a week. Fair play, Kylian.


RickThiCisbih

Tchouameni will make a nice consolation prize for only half the salary.


zmajxd

Tbf I think Tchouameni might just join the winner.


studgebro

I can get on board with this deal. See you in Paris 🤝


TedEBagwell

After the final in case Real Madrid lose. It will be a huge morale boost for the club.


codespyder

Otherwise known as “pulling a Haaland”


dave1992

"We haven't agreed on personal terms with the player but we'll announce it anyway" type of deal?


codespyder

All hopes and no guarantees that’s just how we roll babyyyyy


kpensis

Thats not the mentality


SoccerSummary

Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe said on Sunday that he has "almost" made a decision on his future, but refused to reveal any details. Mbappé is in Paris, having received an award from the French Footballers' Association, and is already preparing for Saturday's final Ligue 1 match against Metz at the Parc des Princes. There will be plenty of speculation this weekend as to whether Mbappé will make his decision public. Real Madrid, as reported by Melchor Ruiz, are hoping that it will be the player himself who makes his decision public and if he finally decides to play for Real Madrid, two scenarios are being considered. The first is that he makes his decision before the match against Metz so that he can say goodbye to his fans at the Parc des Princes. The other option being considered is after the Champions League final against Liverpool in Paris on 28 May. As already advanced last February, if everything works out satisfactorily for Real Madrid, it will be presented at the beginning of July. ?? Reports @MelchorRuizCope on @partidazoCOPE? Realmadrid have not met with @KMbappe today and have no plans to meet him in the coming days? Real Madrid are expected to announce the signing of the Frenchman in the first week of July https://t.co/Fm3zngpjRa Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappé confessed that the decision on his future, with the option of going to Real Madrid, is "almost" made and will be announced in the coming days, fuelling widespread rumours of a possible transfer this summer. "I made the mistake three years ago of monopolising the ceremony. This is neither the place nor the time. I came to thank everyone. I will give my decision very soon, it's almost done. My choice is almost made," said the French striker on Sunday. --- *translated by deepl*


JournaIist

So if Mbappe goes to real, what's the lineup?


Mane_Firmino_Salah

I feel they won't be done with just him and Rudiger. They might bring one more in.


celigodtko

So far our plan seems like: Mbappe,Rüdiger,Tchouaméni,Fran Garcia.


AbleFig

Tchouaméni


leroyyyyyjenkinsssss

we could splurge on a CDM to help out when Casemiro needs rest, camavinga and fede valverde are good backup CM’s for Kroos and Modric but we have no true CDM besides casemiro. Kante wouldn’t be a bad shout, he’s aging, his contract is running down, he can probably still put in some good shifts with adequate rest, just seems he’s been run to death. If we use him as a super-sub CDM I think he would do well.


dave1992

10 attackers, why need to defend?


HungryDavid

Why, we are quite balanced when it comes to the squad. Probably one of the Hazard-Asensio due will be likely to leave, a lot also depends of who will be back-up for Karim for the next season. Mariano probably won't be leaving, he didn't agree for it last two summers, he won't probably this one so he may be the third choice for ST position. Vini-Benz-Mbappe, with the backup of Hazard-xxx(+Mariano)-Rodrygo seems to be the most likely version from what I could have seen with articles related to us and supporters' feelings.


dave1992

It's more fun that way


Yo-SwiggitySwag

Thank fuck Mariano's contract expires next year


kpensis

It worked 8 times this season for them


RexorFWT

Announce early for Real morale boost


Bigmanbravodelta

“Well we’re here at the CL final and seeing Madrid win yet another amazing comeback against the mighty Liverpool tonight, surely nothing can top this…” *Mbappe comes walking on to the pitch with Florentino Perez* “BY GAWD ITS KYLIAN MBAPPES MUSIC AND HES COMING OUT WITH FLORENTINO PEREZ”


auctus10

Tier 1 baby!!


PrancingRam007

All excitement about this has been completely drained, no one cares anymore


Daybreak_99

Looks like this it it, my bets are on after UCL is done.


ThefamousHenk

Surely the first option is the correct one? What reason is there not to announce it before cl final if its basically public knowledge by now?


Nyushi

I'm so happy this saga is over. But fuck me, he's going to be lethal at Madrid.


BlaizeV

You go to Madrid, it's not even a question.


stpstrt

I’m supposed to be excited about this but with the media coverage and constant non stories I just want it to be over and done with at this point.


whayeveridc

Hope he does good enough to attract eyes and money to la Liga and bad enough to not score in a Classico.


dave1992

He's gonna announce that he will join the CL winner, joining them, enjoying good success with that team but can't seem to win CL somehow, and leaving for 100m when he's 29 years old. Right after he leaves, that club won CL again.


jcald60

We fucked psg in the champions league and now we take their best player on a free transfer. Viking raid


WhyAlwaysMe1991

I hate everything about this. It’s like a really disliked new drama series’s


Extension_Hunt1782

He is joining Manchester City


themfeelswhen

Is there a bigger diva in this sport. Fucking hell so much drama just for the sake of it..


Superb-Confidence-44

It's not him though. He has been consistent the entire time.


themfeelswhen

>He has been consistent the entire time. Consistent at making a huge deal about his "next" move. He has been simply delaying the decision forever. Like seriously announce and get it over with.


Superb-Confidence-44

He always said he was still making his decision which seems to have been the truth given the fact there was no agreement on his image rights. Without a decision, he cant announce shit. That's not so difficult to understand, right?


themfeelswhen

I have never seen any player negotiate for a whole year. He is obviously aware of the public battle and playing Real-PSG off each other to get more money. So it's only on him for dragging this deal out forever. Which is fine but not for this fucking long. It's become a EGO battle for Perez & Nasser otherwise I'm fairly sure they would have asked Mbappe to fuck off a long time ago.


Moon_Man_00

It’s one of the biggest transfers in world football we will likely see for years. If you ever thought it wasn’t going to be turned into an endless media clickbait party for maximum profits then you are a fool. He has every right to take as long as he needs to make his decision and doesn’t owe the public anything just to stop the media from being clowns. Blaming the current state of bottom tier football journalism on him “being a diva” is incredibly stupid. He’s a player taking his time to make a decision that might be one of the most important in his career and he’s been rather professional about it the whole time. He doesn’t owe you shit and your anger should be directed at the people who make a living turning these basic news pieces into year long sagas.
