Mbappe wants to be on a team where he will be the center of all things from taking all the free-kicks, penalties and all attacking plays running through him. At the end of last season, he came out and said that he wants more responsibilities and PSG have gone and done the complete opposite by getting a man (Messi) that will take all those responsibilities from him and even Neymar. Leaving him to just be a coasting goalscorer. Whilst PSG have greatly strengthened themselves, Mbappe no longer sees himself as important in this squad and has repeatedly turned down more yearly salary than Messi & Neymar have received according to PSG sporting Director, Leonardo.
It’s funny that we might even get a Communicado Official before Kanye West drops DONDA and Drake drops CLB. Alot of Tic Tac Emoji journalists are praying this move falls through because their little credibility and unscrupulous career hinges on this. Mbappe will be leaving a team with a clear sporting project in place, a club president that isn’t posing as a sporting director, a team stacked with neymar, Messi, verrati, marquinhos, hakimi and other elite level players (not named Kipembe & dalot) all around him to come here and suffer trails and tribulations not seen since the time of the 11 apostles after the ascension of Jesus Christ to heaven.
Mbappe is on the verge of being paired with Vinicius, Benzema, bale, Walmart great value hazard etc. Not bad but he’s walking away from much, much better. This is the stuff of legends and in these last 6 days of august, Uncle Flo better make it rain on our defense and midfield so that going forward, Mbappe will always have adequate support.
Despite all that, THIS is where it begins for him. The beginning of his football legacy at Real Madrid.
WHO WANTS TO BE A TOTTENHAM LEGEND?
It was incredible to see the reception from the Spurs fans on Sunday and to read some of the messages of support I've had in the last few weeks. ⚽— Harry Kane (@HKane) August 25, 2021
I will be staying at Tottenham this summer and will be 100% focused on helping the team achieve success. #COYS pic.twitter.com/uTN78tHlk1
What a load of PR horse radish. This reads more like a cry for help. The most prolific English striker in the Premier league for the past 7 seasons, averaging no more than 25-30+ goals a season. Yet can’t seem to get out of the black hole hole that is Tottenham Hotspurs, thanks to Captain Levy of the survey corps playing hardball. At 28, and only with a CL finals runner-up medal to his name, which doesn’t count for anything. Harry Kane needs to win a trophy before father time calls back all his gifts. Unfortunately for him, there’s no club enthusiastic enough to pry him away from spurs. Not even City.
