    Still feel like he can end up in a Neymar situation where he could have been considered the greatest along side Ronaldo and Messi, but would be more thought of as a great player to purchase on the latest FIFA game.

    How does that make sense when the career path is the complete opposite, moving from a CL-winning La Liga club to the Ligue 1 oil club in his prime?

    It is perfect timing. Nacho looks to be gone. Alaba will probably not be available to start the year, and only has one more year after that. He can break into the squad over the next couple of years with basically no pressure.

    A volume scorer was the missing piece of the team to take it to a dominant level. As long as team chemistry remains good, sky is the limit.

    I'm very excited about this...despite all the crap that happened. I don't think people understand the magnitude of this transfer if it pans out. We've just added the most lethal player on the planet to Vini who is the best overall attacker right now.

    He's coming without a Champions league or a Ballon d'Or which are clearly big targets for him.

    Dude will try to be on some historic sh*t lol...

    Welcome Kyks de Bondy.

    Yeah, he’s joining Real Madrid.

    Mbappé, Endrick and Yoro would be a fantastic summer transfer window. I’d keep Mendy and Fran Garcia at left-back and keep the Miguel Guttierez option open for next summer. Davies hasn’t convinced for a couple of seasons now and would demand high wages. Next summer we should prioritize a new right-back to take over from Dani in a couple of years.

    He really should’ve come 2 summers ago, the timing was perfect. I’m not hyped right now, it’ll change eventually.

    I'm glad we won the league and CL, this way nobody can say we're defending on him to save us.

    We have a very good thing that's working, if he wants to come and help make it better great but that includes work off the ball.

    Winning this one was very important. Like you said, we don’t need a savior. Thank goodness.

    I'm actually happy in a way that he is coming now. We have massively matured and developed as a team over the last 2-3 seasons, building a lot of character and fortitude. He can come now, and enhance our productivity, building on an already strong foundation and core squad.

    I think money has always been his family's (and his by extension) main priority.

    But I also think he didn't expect to come into Real Madrid with the squad coming off a double that has a winger now seen as better than him by many people.

    His stock has fallen a bit these past few yrs and his accomplishments in Ligue 1 are not as respected as they would have been had it been in any other league.

    I also agree with @temesgen. I'd be shocked if he stays more than 5 yrs at Madrid.

    I know he'll probably have the Arda role this year but I'm much more hype for Endrick and I was someone who didn't even think he'd be that good when we first were rumored to go for him.

    The Mbappe transfer excitement ran out last summer.
