Sharp denial of the Parisian club after the post on social media with a photomontage that has been around the world, and Madrid dreams of Mbappé’s arrival
Khalifah Bin Hamad Al Thani is not part of the family of the owners of Paris Saint Germain: he is in fact a former manager of the Al Arabi club in Doha who has no direct connection with the Al Thani of PSG. His tweet, which portrayed Cristiano Ronaldo in a photomontage with the Parisian club shirt alongside Leo Messi, had sparked market rumors, as well as provoking Lapo Elkann’s anger. “CR7 is a Juventus FC player. It is disrespectful to keep putting other shirts on him as if he were a sticker”, his message in response to Al Thani’s tweet.
The odds of the bookmakers
The Cr7 bench against Udinese has triggered the rumors of the transfer market again, leaving PSG and Manchester City hypotheses open: for the Sisal Matchpoint experts, the French goal remains the most likely in the event of a farewell to Juventus, offered to 4 , 50. More difficult, but not impossible, that CR7, as Agipronews points out, approaches the court of Pep Guardiola at an altitude of 6. However, the umpteenth season in Turin is almost obvious for bookies, especially because there are a few days left from the end of the market with the stay at the court of Massimiliano Allegri which is worth 1.12 times the stake. The bookies, however, do not even exclude a nostalgic return to Real Madrid by Carlo Ancelotti, who pays 16 times the stakes, while the second adventure in Manchester (United side) settles at 25 in this transfer window.
Mbappé relaunches his candidacy for Real
Ligue 1? No thanks. Kylian Mbappé relaunches his candidacy for a future in Real Madrid with yet another sibylline interview that suggests a farewell to Paris Saint-Germain. Speaking about Ligue 1, the young transalpine ace was clear to Esquire magazine: «The French one is not the best league in the world, but I have always felt the responsibility as an emblematic player to help the tournament grow». Mbappé’s words traveled around Spain and ended up on the front pages of sports newspapers: from As a Marca, from Mundo Deportivo to Sport. The fans of the ‘blancos’ have begun to daydream.
On his own vision of football, Mbappé added in the interview that “a team is not a group of friends”. “Just like a baker does not get along with all bakers – he stressed -. You don’t have to go to dinner every night with your teammates to win ». Mbappé then emphasized his employment on the pitch, admitting that «few change positions like me. First there was a number nine, or a number seven. With all humility, I don’t think everyone is capable of changing positions like this every year and delivering great performance at the highest level. Am I a star? I think so. Being a star is a status, but it doesn’t make me a better person than others. “
The possible transfer of Mbappé from the ‘Ville Lumiére’ and from PSG to Madrid would trigger a kind of domino effect that would involve Cristiano Ronaldo in particular, whose farewell to Juve at that point would become probable. The only club, also in light of the proceeds from the sale of Mbappé, able to cover the cost of the Portuguese’s card and salary is currently PSG, with Manchester City at the window. Mbappé himself spoke of Ronaldo and Messi. “If you say to yourself that you will do better than them, you go beyond ego or determination: it is lack of conscience – the words of the French -. They are incomparable players, who have demolished every statistic, who have had an extraordinary 10-15 years. In your sport you always compare yourself to the best and I think other players watch me. It is a way to improve and I believe that Messi’s presence served Ronaldo just as Ronaldo served Messi ». And on Neymar: «After winning the 2018 World Cup I told him that I would not ‘invade’ his territory, and that I was a candidate for the Ballon d’Or, because he was not». Finally, also a joke about Haaland: «It’s his second year, it’s at the beginning. I am happy for him and for what he is doing ».
