This guy would want to earn millions per month (which we don't have) and he wouldn't be a starter so whats the point?

I heard that Benzema also have some problems with Saudis and maybe will quit. I don't know about his salary, but he should be better than Arnautivic and Taremi. I don't follow him closely though.
Guess, he doesn't have any blackmail material to end the contract.

Clubs chomping to take on 172m p/year contract what a steal.

This image format is pretty slick and nice, thanks man! Somehow the twitter integration is slow af (it's not about internet connection, the integration/embedding is just slow)

Kylian Mbappe is reportedly demanding €70m per year and a transfer bonus of €125m in order to sign for Real Madrid.

Real Madrid are ready to make Mbappe their next ‘Galactico’, but personal terms are proving difficult to agree.

According to Bild, that is because one of the very best in the business is asking for twice as much as they are willing to pay.

Real are said to have a €35m annual offer on the table, but that is nowhere near what Mbappe is reportedly demanding.

Real Madrid are looking for “written guarantees” from the Frenchman if a compromise on terms is reached, with a protracted saga continuing to drag on.

Part of the problem is that PSG are refusing to give up on Mbappe, with the reigning Ligue 1 champions ready to offer Mbappe €100m per year to stay put.

Extremely disappointed in Mbappe if he continues to be such a money whore after making tens of well over hundred million playing in PSG. Playing just there doesn't prove him to be the best.

I'm strongly asking how and why the German media would have the scoop on a French player on a French team and a potential move to a Spanish team.

When a veteran player leaves Madrid, they never cycle back on them for a future return. Even if Benzema still has qualities to offer for Madrid, I think they've moved on and I'd be shocked to see him play there again.

(They're strict about that, but in regards to pursuing a player who has turned them down every summer for the last six years, on that one they gladly open their legs. I dunno, inconsistencies and whatever I guess.)

Seems a bit naive to not see it for what it is and what PSG have cultivated - money driven

Mbappe is more interested in media & financial successed than sporting success. Not a competitor for titles or love of the game but a commodity looking to exploit it as much as possible

PSG cultivated that? Have you seen the Premier League?

Zola and Vialli moved there for the money in the 1996 and everyone was calling out their lack of ambition.

Money talks. And players don't care about their status or glory or whatever. They'll be loved where they're headed anyway if they're respectful towards fans and management.

Who are these EPL stars who have cultivated a money first attitude vs club & sporting success? PSG changed the game with Neymar & Mbappe - it is without precedent

PSG won 9 out of 11 league titles, 6 cups, 6 league cups and they reached a CL final.


80% of the PL is money first now. There all businesses and not many clubs care enough about winning.

Look at Arsenal. Oh, we need to stop investing at the club to win titles, we are saving to build a stadium.

Chelsea at least started throwing money to win shit with Abramovich's questionable funding.
Same with City.
Manchester United on the other hand is a proper business ever since Ferguson left.
Tottenham as well.

Again, you are deflecting - moreover, PSG winning in France is not the barometer of sporting success

Silly money began with PSG, not EPL

I see no scenario where Barça cash in on Faye until he’s had a shot with the senior team, a lot of expectations on him and has lived up to his pre-acquisition hype with B team thus far but rapid emergence of Cubarsi may have impact
