Nnekaddict

I genuinely believe, had M'Bappé won the CL with PSG, he'd have signed with Real Madrid. Like... I think non-French people don't realize how big it'd be for him to succeed in doing so. Even I, a Parisian born who doesn't support PSG, would suck his D even harder than I've already been since 2018. Don't forget, only Marseille won the CL in France, once... Legacy-wise, nothing, NOTHING, can beat this after the WC for M'Bappé, a French man born in Paris. Even if, PSG is an oil club.


Seismic_Jeopardy

Why are you spelling him like that? Is it how he wrties his name in French?


Nnekaddict

Ha it might just be a bad habit for me, many African names starting with a M are written like this.


Seismic_Jeopardy

Yeah, understood - so he's just Mbappe as he has always been.


Trailer_Park_Jihad

Yeah I actually agree with you. Obviously the money offered by PSG played a big part but I am surprised how many people try to downplay the fact that Mbappe is a Parisian who could deliver PSG their first UCL if he stays. It would definitely factor into his decision.


Rigelmeister

Did Tondela really make it all the way to the final in Portuguese cup without meeting a single club from Primeira? Wow

> Are Liverpool's owners trying to buy AC Milan? They own 11% of Liverpool. Hardly 'The City Group' are they?


X-V-W

>Are Liverpool's owners trying to buy AC Milan? Well, the answer to that is no so you should probably do a little more research before victimising yourself


DyrusforPresident

i blame Lebron James


Carthagu

Many Madrid fans are behaving incredibly strangely Yeah, it hurts not having a player who liked your club and was vocally interested in a move fail to transfer, but it’s fucking football. He didn’t murder your parents and beat you to a pulp. Acting as though this is some heinous crime. The lad was practically offered the fucking club, not bizarre to see why he’d take it especially if his entire family is urging him to. There’s a lot of weight when not only your family but seemingly an entire country is pressuring you to make a decision. “He will never come here. He made his choice. Fuck Mbappe.” This isn’t Game of Thrones, calm down.


AdObjective4017

Real Madrid fans (at least the ones who post on reddit) are entitled prats. Hilarious seeing them get knocked down a peg or 12.


Lyrical_Forklift

The ones in this sub are genuinely the better ones.

Just let us be dramatic

Some player renewed in Ligue 1, big shit. Should focus on getting La Liga more visibility.

Nkunku might be better than de Bruyne was at Wolfsburg


Re-noire

Hm, strange to read but I concur. He is outstanding.


kdball

That is a high praise for Nkunku. Might have to watch some compilations, haha


Time-Ad-4302

Real Madrid should have just gotten Rashford I'm pretty sure he can write a diss track against Mbappe


OttaBenga

fucking hell those Mbappe goals clips the football looks as intense as a state championship game here in Brazil

Man's committement to his job is commendable.

He refuses to backtrack. Is he crazy, or arrogant.

TenGraves

What’s stopping City spending the same amount as PSG do? FFP is nowhere and City clearly aren’t short of money, dunno why they don’t just press the fuck it button tbh


AdObjective4017

They pretty much have a £50mil player at every position, plus some on the bench.


No-Enthusiasm-6016

Spending smartly > spending for the hell of it I don't like City, but their sporting project has been handled very well. They do spend a lot, but the decisions are left to football people


lagaryes

Their goal is to win football matches cohesively, not throw a bunch of egomaniacal stars together and hope it works. They’re just being smarter about it


msf97

They already press the fuck it button. It’s just that their recruitment and back room are significantly better than PSGs. Also, I believe they nearly got done for it and got off on a technicality. That wouldn’t be good PR.

Tebas will sue PSG and get madrid Mbappe and bring us Messi back. The great fold is finally happening.


DyrusforPresident

All this so Perez and Laporta accept the CVC deal


PumpedUpMatic

TIL that Sérgio Conceição (FC Porto’s manager) lost his dad when he was 16 and his mom when he was 18 Fucking hell, I never liked him (for obvious reasons) but I’ve always respected him as a manager and person, and this makes me respect him even more


butters-chaos

Wow that's sad and super strong for him. RIP to his parents.


LemureTheMonkey

Yeah, he always dedicates the titles he wins to his parents.


PumpedUpMatic

I had no idea honestly, going through that when so young is unthinkable really


Superb-Barracuda-924

Mbappe just scored a hattrick for PSG, MF announcing it in style

I’m just glad Tebas has someone else to moan about, other than City. Feels good.

[No question for me Bale is the greatest British player of this century and maybe all time](https://twitter.com/PrivCarrick/status/1527756760789950465)


JohnnyKossacks

I think Bale will have the most insane post career glow up. The man was absent half his time at Real Madrid but no one will care cause he won 4 champion leagues. Tbf to him he had scored lots of memorable moments and was on par with Neymar’s talent almost in his first two years at Real Madrid


avolcando

Great compilation and great take, why did the use the censored version of the song though


msf97

Greatest British player of all time? There isn’t even the slightest hope. Salah will retire better than him. And Gerrard was better than Salah, just to name one player. Likes of Charlton, Dalglish, Bobby Moore, Denis Law, Souness, George Best are all easily better.


_Garou

>Salah will retire better than him. At what


kdball

Didn't know salah was british?


AyanC

Salah, the quintessential Britisher.


msf97

I was using him as a point of comparison


VeryBadflower

he never said Salah was British, he was comparing him to a similar player who was British.


_LebronsHairline_

Mate Salah is definitely not better than Bale.


Pleasant_Opening2675

The shit you read on this sub..


msf97

He’s currently having what would be Bales best creative season by a long shot. I’m not sure Bale scored more than 20 league goals in his career. Salahs an all time great already.


_LebronsHairline_

In 12/13 he had 21 and 4 in a Spurs side that only scored 66. In 15/16 he had 19 and 10 in 23 matches. In that season he had 0.32xA per 90, Salah rn has 0.19xA per 90. He also had .15 pre assists per 90, Salah currently has .09. Salah is absolutely an all time great but Bale was different. He is definitely one of the best British players ever.


alx69

Bale looks better on compilation videos, but I'd much rather have Salah on my team


Luis_Carlos_Almeida

Greatest winger definitely, but I still think Rooney was better all time. (Biased)


ugotbaited

Garry Cahill is a free agent, reckon Perez could convince him to come here?


xaviernoodlebrain

Why would you want him when Joe Rodon is available?


AnnieIWillKnow

Cahill knows how to win trophies


DeadFinger

Vini will win ballon d'or before mbappe 😊


VeryBadflower

aye, PSG buying him next year and having him and Mbappe lead them to a CL would probably net him a Ballon D'or


TheGamezSmith

We might lose dembele too because of PSG. Pass me some of that copium.


AyanC

[Sure, mate.](https://i.imgur.com/c1wceJ6.jpg)

narutosama77

OP is obviously joking but to give some context, Vini at 21- 41 G/A (1 match to go) Mbappe at 21- 48G/A Its not an outlandish opinion.


JohnnyKossacks

I like Vini but he was basically Robinho 2.0 until this season. Mbappe’s been world class for years.


narutosama77

As I said OP is joking but its not a terrible take.


narutosama77

Objectively true.


Mr_XemiReR

>🚨| Leaked audio of Florentino Perez in 2006: "Players are selfish. **You can't count on them for anything**. I have a horrible image of footballers, horrible, horrible. I've seen lots of things in my life, but I've never see anything like footballers, man." @elconfidencial #rmalive Pérez's mistake turned out to be counting on a player. He didn't follow his philosophy and everything went to shit. One thing I'm sure of, no more counting on verbal agreements.


DyrusforPresident

He is getting soft in his old age


deadassynwa

I understand Liverpool fans get a bad wrap but genuinely I take a peek at r/realmadrid and I dont think theres any debate on the least knowledgable, most plastic fanbase in the world And I dont mean it in that they are delusional or arrogant or self entitled (all fanbases are) but just on a pure footballing knowledge - I dont think these fans actually watch football aside from Real Madrid highlights. I'm seeing fans that are rating Dominic Berardi?!?!?! Federico Chiesa!?!?! Gnabry??!?!? As their Mbappe replacement? Talking bout how they are going to sign Reece James?


Murrderer

I haven’t gone on there all day. Frankly the complete turnaround and dissing on Mbappe the last two days both there and on socials is just so embarrassing. There’s been a lot more younger users joining there in the past year or so and I just get downvoted if I try to talk sense then whatever the jerk going on there is


Shaggay1

Chiesa and an inform Gnabry would be an incredible replacement for Asensio (can’t speak on Berardi)


narutosama77

lmao you started out so well then made a fool of yourself in last paragraph.


GJXN1990

No offence but when I was reading "least knowledgeable, most plastic, etc" in his comment. It was you who I was thinking of. But I'll be honest, my very very low opinion of you mostly stems from you spoiling The Batman in a FTF post.


Murrderer

Wtf, respect Narutosama. He’s one of the more level headed guys on there and actually talks sense too


narutosama77

To be the next Messi or Ronaldo, is impossible. But Mbappe sure is an incredible player who has the potential to be one of the best players of all time.

If there was a world cup final between England and Qatar who would you want to win

Qatar because Boris would use the win as justification for the systematic eradication of the welfare state, the privatisation of our national health service and the enabling of right-wing populist dogma.

Tebas must be seething. They've lost Neymar, Messi and now Mboopi to PSG.


el_rompe_toyotas-19

If Tebas actually manages to succesfully appeal to UEFA and gets them a UCL/transfer ban i will write a marriage proposal to him.


ProMarcoMug

Who is madder right now Perez or Tebas?


Klondikejar

Tebas. Perez sure is mad but he still has a form of damage control by signing other players. Tebas is just mad because he missed a big opportunity to make Laliga more commercially attractive.


_LebronsHairline_

Perez is probably shooting orphans in a most dangerous game type scenario to release his anger.


b0xel

If the CL final goes to Penalties I will actually go hide under my bed until it’s over. Every penalty shootout this year ended with the team I wanted to win losing out


[deleted]

It's funny to see the outrage over Mbappe staying with PSG and Haaland to City when they are two of very few world class players who actually have ties to the clubs and aren't just there for money


Editmypicplease

as if the "ties" really made a difference in these cases


[deleted]

If it didn't they would've gone to clubs that have won the CL in their history


X-V-W

Haven't seen any outrage around Haaland to City, if I'm being honest. It makes sense from all perspectives.


GJXN1990

Yeah like, Haaland's dad literally played for us. He spent his childhood in England. Yet Madrid fans are **absolutely certain** that his ultimate ambition is to play for them. Same with Mbappe, simply because he idolised Cristiano Ronaldo when he was younger. A player they tossed on the scrap heap as soon as it was convenient for them.


_Garou

Are you like a paid shill? Or unpaid


kdball

Wtf are you talking about? He is a shill because he has an opinion?


_Garou

Nothing wrong with opinions except bad ones.


kdball

It wasn't a bad one. Even if it was, does that make him a shill? Stop throwing words around.


_Garou

It was and yes

AshkenaziTwink

they aren’t **just** there for money though are they? Haaland’s dad played for City and PSG is Mbappe’s local.


[deleted]

Do yourself a favor and look up what "just" means before taking another hit of the blunt


SnooHamsters8590

Lets not kid ourselves here. Sure if you wanna go to the nitty gritty yes they're not *just* there for money. But like all career moves it's definitely the primary motivation. Lets not pretend that romanticism has more pull than money


Luis_Carlos_Almeida

Amad Diallo is the closest thing we will ever get to generational talent Bernardo Silva. Manchester United need to do whatever they can to ensure he fulfills his potential.


LemureTheMonkey

Scottish fans in here say he is shit tho.


GJXN1990

Yeah, Rangers prefer to play Fashion Sakala over him. Diallo just looks like a player that has absolutely zero chemistry with the players round about him. Maybe that's just because it's a loan in Scotland but they ended up Europa League finalists, he had every opportunity to impress.


Luis_Carlos_Almeida

They were right about him being bad for most of this season (was only there for 6 months tbf), but he showed me glimpses of what he can be when he regained some confidence. He had a good debut, but then the match against Celtic was too big for him and ruined his confidence. He has been better lately. If a manager gets a hold of him and develops him I think he can be as good as Bernardo Silva.


AyanC

Scottish fans don't know ball though.

He's too young for that. Money is a big factor but you don't get to Mbappes level without professional drive and a desire to actually win. He can phone it in when he has a CL.

JS569123

Maybe I’m just completely crazy and detached from reality or something, who knows, but Mbappe (in my opinion) just isn’t good enough for such a big fuss from both La Liga and PSG. Messi, Ronaldo Nazario, Cristiano, Cruyff, Maradona, Ronaldinho, Zico, Zidane. None of these players got anywhere what we’re seeing (with PSG offering Mbappe literal control over transfers within the club and the actual association of La Liga taking them to court over this). Don’t get me wrong, Mbappe is great and absolutely one of the best forwards right now in 2022, but… yeah, I just don’t see it. Don’t get why both PSG and Madrid/La Liga are seemingly so desperate about this. There are other great young forwards out there and I’m sure some who none of us yet know about.


_Garou

Madrid needs star power tbf, the galacticos was their signature. But unironically developing vini and rodrygo will be more soulful.


JS569123

I understand that I’m not Florentino Perez, and maybe the fact I’m sitting here talking on Reddit whilst he’s president of Madrid shows what I’m missing, but… I think it makes much more sense for Madrid to invest in a few players rather than just Mbappe. Especially when, as you say, they have Vinicius and Rodrygo (who have shone brighter than Mbappe in the Champion’s League this season)


_Garou

True but Perez likes shiny things
