Finally, after much desperation and exaggerated claims amongst 9 months of zero competitive football, aspiring young starlet Jesse “Beanzzz” Lingard has been offered a contract (as a professional footballer, no less) at FC Seoul.

Apparently he’s keen to expand his off-field business interests in esports, fashion and a fledgling restaurant empire. A modern renaissance man indeed.

Clearly South Korea were keen to provide the masses with some uplifting news after the despair of their shock semi defeat in the Asia Cup.
It's a weird one as he seemingly gave up on being a serious footballer some time ago.  Maybe getting his foot in the door with FC Seoul is just a way to build a bit of a brand in South Korea.

I occasionally come across the irritating advert of David Beckham touting a place on his esports team.  That's got JLingz all over it.

I've seen one of his esports teams competing in the Apex Legends tournaments.  His teams are literally called JLingz.

How shit must him and De Gea be that they've been free agents for like 8/9 months and no Saudi team thought 'Yeah fuck it why not, they're sort of famous'

I know people have got to make a living and doing so by playing computer games is a more challenging way than most... but... I just don't think I could rock up covered in JLingz apparel.  It's very possible though that he's not seen as such a twerp in South Korea.

Lingard had an extended trial with Al Ettifaq end of last year but they declined to take it further.

Or De Gea might have an ounce of integrity about him and has turned down offers from Saudi?

A hell of a lot more players turn them down than go there.

I would be very surprised if he hasn't had offers. Not just from Saudi but all over Europe too. Maybe he's just not in a rush and enjoying his free time.

E-sports teams mostly lose money I think so just having someone covering the costs is probably enough motivation to join.

Loads of noise on Twitter that Tel at Bayern could be available in summer.

Very promising talent, they’d be mad to let him go. Their recruitment and decision making has been pretty shocking last few years. Usually a well oiled machine.

Well if we’re speculating at that level, how about Mbappe ending up at City, with Haaland ending up at R.M?

They should probably get a cool nickname. Because they're signing the best players in the galaxy, maybe they could be called the Galaxy boys or something. We can work on it.

Their first 'Galacticos' from 2000-2006 under Perez, won one La Liga and one Champions League. Rafas Valencia won more in the same time, so maybe we don't need to resign ourselves to them winning the CL for the next decade.

The first Galaticos was really about signing players at the end of their prime, this group of players are different.

Yeah, looks like they're making the right moves on paper with an already very successful side with lots of good young players. I think Davies will be a really good signing for them. Not sure if it's gone stale for him at Bayern or if he's the best they can do defensively but he'll offer loads for them going forward. Success of course not guaranteed but he's had a great career so far with a lot of football ahead of him.

Yeah I'm baffled by the Galacticos shout to be honest. They're just buying really, really, really fucking good players with the added benefit of them all being young and hungry to make a name for themselves. Mbappe lifts multiple UCL's there I would imagine.

Its just a bit of a casual way to describe them signing lots of big name players.

We'll see I guess. On paper its pretty fearsome. Mbappe, Vinicius, Rodrygo, Bellingham, Valverde, Tchouameni and Camavinga. Four central midfielders, two left wingers and a right winger. Not much in defence. Currently having to play Joselu as a central striker (the guy who played for Stoke). And then they might sign Alphonso Davies... a very attacking left back to go with their two big, big name left wingers.

Dont get me wrong, finding a way to get all those players into a functioning team is a nice problem to have...but its also not particularly easy. The age of the players isn't the point. That team of Zidane, Figo, Ronaldo, Raul, Carlos, Beckham etc should have been phenomenal regardless of their age. But it wasnt, because they couldnt gel those players together.

He's very unlikely to go to a club with limitless funds and even if he did, he'd be very unlikely to approach our players. We signed no one from Dortmund.

There's no club with limitless funds in Europe. That can only happen if he goes to Saudi.
