Ligue 1: Paris Saint-Germain Close In On Kylian Mbappe

When Paris Saint-Germain say they “Dream Bigger,” they mean it. Nasser Al-Khelaifi is not messing around when it comes to being the owner of the richest club in the French Republic. To this end, as FC Barcelona continue to wonder if they can actually put their Neymar cash to use in some way, shape or form, the Parisians will have chosen to stick it to AS Monaco by signing Kylian Mbappe.

Cue the evil comedic laughter in the background, scenes of disbelief in the other cities and towns and villages, especially Amiens, whose Unicorns of the Amiens Sporting Club can only consider themselves extremely fortunate—and we mean this folks, EXTREMELY fortunate—to not have been brought the woodshed a la 9-0, the scoreline that returned Ligue 1 lightweight ESTAC Troyes faced at their own house.

Depth, position competition, fresh bodies, all hands on deck for a grueling season is what manager Unai Emery and his staff is expecting. Let’s point out an important thing worth noting here: this news is coming from reports in Spain, from Marca (aligned to Real Madrid) and Sport (aligned to Barcelona). What is telling about these reports is that Le Parisien argues that nothing has taken place between Monaco and Paris.

As you already know, Mbappe wants to play for Real Madrid. That has been documented on the record by all the news agencies and all the journalists from the world over, of which we here at TST are a privileged part of. But at the age of 18, he would need some development before joining his dream team of Los Blanc and maybe finally playing with Cristiano Ronaldo, although he might be moving on by that point, especially with his tax evasion issues.. A worthy successor at 21? Sure, why not! But, but…tax evasion issues! Ouch.

Meanwhile, the devastated board room to Madrid’s northeast at Football Club Barcelona are trying to desperately use their handy dandy Neymar cash with bated breath to steal a March on the European continent and snap up Mbappe and outbid both Madrid and Paris before both teams leave the poor Blaugrana high and dry like a bird in the sky. As it stands, Mbappe is still with AS Monaco and should be fit for the Monegasques next match, an away trip to…Dijon. For fans of the Principality’s finest, it may be one of the last few times the boy wonder could be suiting up for this club.

So should young, dashing and handsome Kylian Mbappe, 18 years young, make the move to his home town in the end, the Paris Saint-Germain Football Club of the 16th arrondissement of France’s largest metropole will have taught the pretentious lawmakers of the Union of European Football Associations in Nyon, Switzerland a humbling and telling lesson.

Never EVER allow the possibility of loopholes when implementing Financial Fair Play. PSG’s battle hardened board room brouhahas will take that concept to the woodshed the same way its first team took the then-doomed and relegation-bound ESTAC Troyes to the woodshed on that fateful day in March 2016.
