Vinicius would fit in, he would also miss 10 chances per game

Mbappe is receiving 20m net and 50m signing bonus. Not that expensive tbh.
+ Alfonso Davies they'll be CL winners for years to come. So poor for football monopoly.
+Hakimi as well. Damn...

I suspect they're gonna run it back at least one more year with Carvajal after the resurgence he's had this year, but with Hakimi being a 2026 expiring contract, it wouldn't surprise me in any way at all if Hakimi is to next year what Davies was this year...a player Madrid target as a summer signing with one year remaining before they're out of contract. There's every chance I could be wrong, but I've always felt that Hakimi returning to Madrid is one of those things that's been bound to happen, the timing just wasn't good enough for him coming out of the academy.

Now, I would've rather them also pursued a reunion as well with Theo, but I guess the market opportunity with Davies was too good to pass up, as well as Davies being three years younger. But they're gonna be banking on Davies becoming the player that Theo already is, and for all the talk about being able to combine with Vini and be pace for days down the left flank...Vini often uses the overlapping runs as space creation for himself rather than sometimes playing the pass.

I think it was more about Zidane not rating Hakimi in a back 4 due to his defensive weaknesses (same as Theo).
