    Here we go, again. Thank god its at the start of transfer window, not the end like previous time. Even if FP puts all money on Mbappe and deal still does not go through, we will have plenty of time for actuall reinforcements.

    This is just making Kane more expensive

    Benz said publicly, at an awards ceremony, to "not believe the internet", and then he left.

    Some of you are putting way too much weight on what Mbappe has just posted.

    Lmao PSG called his bluff and now he is back pedalling.

    I doubt he wants to give up on next season's wage even if he has ambitions to leave the year after. Looks like he and his team are shocked by PSG management.

    Hope Perez isn't counting on this guy this season and does not sabotage this summer on the hope he's available later. He's destined to move to highest bidder.

    Does PSG actually need to sell? It's not like they need the money.

    Oh yeah, the BREAKING and JUST IN tweets hold much more weight than tweets from the person involved, absolutely.

    I think its a threat. Mbappe doesn't want to move now.

    Only from a UEFA FFP perspective (for whatever it's worth), and there has been a lot of focus and attention on clubs abiding by FFP recently.

    Yeah, ok, sure, I agree with you 100%. Let's just assume that everything Mbappe, his mother and his entourage say is 100% gospel. Great thought process...

    I hope we fully appreciate how big the Bellingham signing is when it gets announced. Feels like it’s going to go under the radar because of all this drama

    To be fair to Kylian, PSG is playing the vintage blame shifting game. They first leaked the letter Mbappe sent informing them he won't renew beyond June 2024 and then the club painted the picture that he wants to leave to RM now. PSG's stance is renew now or be sold this summer; what Mbappe said is the obvious: I will honor my current contract and didn't ask to be sold now.

    Mbappe will be sold this summer imo, that said I don't think he'll end up at RM, he's a brilliant superstar but maybe somethings aren't meant to be.

    I hope Flo can work in parallel on other signings (e.g. Kane) without being sucked in too much in the Mbappe drama, missing out on Kane/or another top-tier ST after losing out on Haaland last summer because of Fayza will be unforgivable.

    It’s definitely going to be less hyped because of this drama. Hell, Brahim Diaz was presented today and I haven’t seen a post about it at all, lol.

    Dude, if he says he's staying, he's staying. All the tweets with 4D chess theories that arose a second later after his post are just from accounts desperate to keep the story alive.

    Florentino said he would sign him next year.

    I prefer to take their word over BREAKING TWEETS from Madrid Arabia Xtra or something.

    Nope. My theory in the other thread is the truth; PSG don't want to deal with Mbappe's mothers games and are trying to pressure them to sign the deal they have offered on the table.

    Either they sign the deal and take the enormous sum or they force him out early to take meager wages of the non-oil subsidized giant Real Madrid.

    Actually an interesting chess move.

    Mbappe has seemingly responded to take the heat placed on him off but him and his mother are cornered. They will accept the hundreds of millions but will miss out on the billion they probably are requesting

    Last season, Mbappe used us for a better deal, and screwed up our pursue of Haaland along the way. Because of his actions in the last 24 hours, we might lose out on Kane this summer. So instead waiting for Mbappe and PSG, let's use him to get us a better deal with Kane.

    As of yesterday, Kane seemed to be our only solution on our striker position. Levy of course knows that too. So he thinks that he has the upper hand on us, but he also knows that we might be Kane's only realistic buyer who can afford 100 million for him. But now, things have change. Levy might lose his most likely potential buyer, and Kane might walk free to another English club next summer. He might be panicking. If I were Perez, I won't be trusting Mbappe. I would just offer Levy 40 or 50 million plus Odriozola for Kane. Take it or leave it. And we will then go after Mbappe.

    Meanwhile, Kane went to bed last night thinking that the opportunity of playing for Real Madrid does not come easily, especially at the age of 30, but he has many other things to consider. He knows that he has time to think things over. Now, he suddenly realises that the Madrid ship might have sailed...... instead of playing for a CL contender, he is not even in the Conference League. What will he do now?

    I think Mbappe is playing this tremendously. I think it is for sure he will leave this season for a fee or next season for free. I think our legitimate competition is Man U if they are bought out by the Qataris, that delivers the platform that Mbappe is looking for.

    unlike other posters, I don’t think his recent tweet contradicts his letter. It’s a phenomenal move while still playing “nice.”

    Have you ever dated somebody you knew was terrible for you but you just couldn’t leave for whatever reason. That is Mbappe’s situation with PSG, just add billions and first world political pressure.

    Yeah except Figo had a contract signed, and he had a release clause, and he was not playing for a club with endless money and power.
