True Rivals that we may play twice a year? Uhh, I think you're just projecting what you want to project unless you can predict the future which if so then what are you doing here? You're also completely ignoring the actual worst case scenario of PSG setting a new market for what top end talent can ask for in wages/bonus.

That market has already been set when they signed Neymar and Messi. And like Neymar and Messi, Mbappe will be getting most of his money through "ambassadorial" and "consultancy" deals with the state of Qatar. You certainly don't think that the €100 million signing-on fee for Mbappe will appear on PSG's books?

Why wouldn't it? What would PSG be afraid of when they run the ECA and are on the UEFA board while already having won in court vs. UEFA? I get that you just type what you feel but at some point reality should hit. They don't need to hide anything. Further Neymar and Messi's wages are no where near this right now. We're talking €2m a week gross basically if I understand the French tax system correctly.

Yeah, you're still wrong. Even if they add more money on top Messi is at €1.2m/week and Neymar is on €1.08m/week. Mbappe's new deal would almost double that. All to make sure he's wearing PSG colors for the World Cup marketing push. This has no relation to anything real and again exacerbates the wage market for players. But focus on Real Madrid's basically immaterial rivalry to us, whatever....

Ofcourse it will. Ive seen some justify it by saying his value to PSG goes up to 150mil instead of a free but theres no justifying that.

Using some Swiss Ramble numbers from 2019/20 there were 3 other clubs in the entire league that paid wages in excess of Mbappe's reported 100m a year gross. They were Marseille at 118, Monaco at 121 and Lyon at 132. Massive and historic clubs like Marseille paying just in excess of 1 player is enough to make you throw up.

Also was talking about Madrid. I don't believe he'll stay at PSG.

This is the ONE thing I like about City. Their penchant for pretending to want players associated with Man U to force them into offering stupid wages to a player who'll cause them massive problems or is just sh!t. First Sanchez, then Fred, then Ron now Carlton Pogba. It's genius.

Small sample size but Nketiah is putting up really legit numbers

Be interesting to see what happens to him this summer, if Arsenal are really going to let him go a smart club will probably take a punt on him... Birghton, Leicester?

Haaland to City done deal

https://twitter.com/david_ornstein/status/1523555889600286720?s=21&t=AyQ04GnSOolaEXk18VGnYQ

Few others interesting bits from him in his column. Says Pogba has turned down City, despite them offering an excellent package. Sounds like he’ll go to either PSG, Madrid or Juve.

Tielemans is Arsenal’s top midfield target, and they’re offering Elneny a new deal.

And Olise is in talks to extend his Palace contract by a further year, not with a salary boost but in order to raise his release clause to the £50m plus mark.

He’d be excellent at Brighton, though arsenal would be mad not to try everything to extend his deal.

They still need another forward (probably 2) but it’s clear there is a good player there.

Palace were close to getting him in January, good thing that fell through over a couple of millions. He ll end up there or at west ham in my opinion.

Id like him to stay, but he wont be first choice so only if hes happy to be a back up. The problem we have now is one striker that does everything but score in Lacazette, and one that scores but does very little else in Nketiah. I think its more likely they both leave, Jesus to come in + 1 more.

So you’ll have watched him more than me but his numbers don’t look like a striker that scores and does nothing else - looks like he looks after the ball, creates a decent amount and his defensive numbers are really good … but small sample size so maybe they’re not sustainable (and sub effects)
One thing that is true - if he could sustain these numbers it would be really tough / expensive to replicate in the market

He was a striker that scored and done little else, couldn't hold it up, couldn't play off him, couldn't play runners in or that. But, he has improved with this latest run, he's understanding the role more and its showing in his performances. Obviously confidence and an actual run of games has helped with this.

I was happy with losing him and Laca this summer & replacing them with 2 players. However, his form has made me think twice. Could we get away with signing 1 striker and giving Eddie more time, would he be happy to stay if we did so, is it too much of a gamble and better to get a more senior player with a different skill set? All depends on budget as well I suppose.

you honestly don’t think he gave that a seconds thought I am sure! Just a couple years ago Gundogan wore a t-shirt when with the German squad making a stand againgst human rights abusers.

Majority of footballers are ignorant and have zero self awareness. They don’t even get that what they are doing is utterly hypocritical. Same for Guardiola and his public stance for Catalan prisoners while taking millions in payment every year from am emirate state that jails gay people.

I hope Pogback goes to Madrid. That should leave us with a clear run at Tchouameni.
