Realistically we all would have taken the bag in Mbappe’s shoes over joining our dream club and being in a relevant league. Even Fabrizio said just said as recently as Tuesday he was convinced Mbappe was going to RM, so let’s stop acting like this was all just in the imagination of RM fans taken on a ride by the media. Mbappe got an offer he couldn’t refuse at the 11th hour.
He also gets to potentially work his hustle again in 3 years too by getting PSG into another bidding war and possibly finessing another ridiculous re-signing bonus out of them.
All that said, I appreciate maximal pettiness from Madridistas. It’s understandable, but we also did get ****ed. Didn’t court Haaland aggressively or start making contacts with any other attackers.
There are lowkey underlying racist implications in wanting the owner out but tbf he has done a terrible job there. Valencia essentially became a feeder club. Also had Neville in charge briefly for what seems like only a few weeks at a point
Mans fleeced Barca and Arsenal with Gomes and Mustafi and really didn't spend on anyone including the money we paid for Ferran Torres too. I can barely recognize that squad.
