Every Madridista’s nightmare, the FIFA Break is back. Fans will be somewhat looking forward to watching their favourite players represent their home countries... but more than anything, they won’t be looking forward to praying to Melitele that no player gets injured like usual.
Mbappe Saga: The Final Chapter (for now)
Today is the deadline day set by Real Madrid to the much-talked-about club from Paris, regarding the answer to their second bid. The man himself is travelling to represent his nation and still doesn’t have any idea where he will be plying his trade at in two weeks time. The window is closing and the two clubs are playing a mixture of chess and teen drama. Let us hope that the situation is resolved so that we know if we should celebrate, or at the very least, not have to listen to childish rants for a while. Keep in mind that there’s a very good chance our offer just bites the dust at the last possible moment after long hard sessions of thought by the other side.
Kylian Mbappe feels he is being kept at Paris Saint-Germain against his will amid bids from Real Madrid.— Sky Sports News (@SkySportsNews) August 29, 2021
Held against his will huh? Who would have thought. At least either way he’s gonna make a lot of money and, if he stays in Paris, he’ll be playing in an overpowered squad (Will be interesting to see who the game goes through, though I think we can all agree on who the safe bet is on)
Remember this baller?
Yeah, it has indeed been that long.
