Football betting sites are so confident that Kylian Mbappe will join Real Madrid next summer that at the moment you can’t even bet on that result.
Betting on Mbappe’s future was until the end of the summer Transfer window of 2021 possible when only one team – Blancos – seemed ready and able to do business with Paris Saint-Germain and Madrid traded 2/5 as their next club.
Much to the horror of the Real President Florentino Pérez refused the French team to accept an incredible offer of 200 million euros for a player who is out of contract and will be available for free in the summer of 2022.
Perez has expressed his frustration that “state clubs “Refusing to do business when it makes good business sense and is likely to poach Mbappe for free next year, if the reports are to be believed.
But Mbappe is behind Madrid as stuck as we think? One of the reasons the Bernabeu team wanted to pay € 200m for him during the last transfer window was to let other interested parties, Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea, go ahead.
Madrid are still strong behind the wheel after showing intent with real offers over the summer, and Mbappe has publicly admitted he would be ready to leave if PSG had accepted any of their offers.
However, Real is no longer the force they are facing two or three years ago, and should they fail to make an impact in this year’s Champions League, Mbappe could easily turn the head of a number of Premier League clubs that are able to keep up with improving Madrid’s wage capacity.
If you look at the odds of the Champions League, it is expected that the Premier League clubs will dominate the final stages again this season.
Manchester City (7/2), Liverpool (6/1) and defending champion Chelsea (7/1) are all single-digit odds on the bets, while even Manchester United (14/1) can’t be excluded from the equation if you set a smart appointment to get Ole Gunnar Solskjaer To put those odds in perspective, Real Madrid are at 25/1 a longer chance of winning the Champions League this year than any of the English teams can wait for the club to be in better shape Aside from Real Madrid, much of the talk about Mbappe’s next move has actually centered on Liverpool – and the club’s record scorer Ian Rush has been pushing the Reds to bring him – but the reality is that the owners The club is likely to be deterred by Mbappe’s wage claims.
Given his talent, age and commercial value, Mbappe can expect reimbursements in the order of € 400,000 per week, we nn he signs for a club on a free transfer, which would mock Liverpool’s current salary structure.
So Manchester City seems a much more likely target than Mbappe’s next club as the oil-rich Premier League champions are in a much stronger position, taking financial risks as Liverpool.
However, Pep Guardiola is very meticulous about the role of a striker on his team and whether his preferred style of play would lead him to Mbappe is unclear.
In the meantime Manchester United is not afraid of throwing money into trouble and you can be sure that there have been discussions in the boardrooms about whether or not to offer Mbappe a deal next year. It would certainly be the kind of signature to allay the growing unrest with the support of Old Trafford.
Incredibly, Newcastle is now one of the richest clubs in the world and after Saudi Arabia’s takeover of the Public Investment Fund (PIF) can be classified as one of the “state-owned clubs” that have annoyed Florentino Pérez so much in recent years.
They are currently in a relegation battle in the Premier League, but hope to buy their way out of troubles in the January transfer window before they build something special on Tyneside.
Making Mbappe the highest paid player in the world would certainly signal Newcastle’s intention to the European top dogs, but is it just wishful thinking and paper speeches?
“We’ll see what happened to Newcastle United – there have been rumors and you never know what will happen at the end of the day, things can turn very easily and very quickly.
“There is a great connection with Real Madrid and I know that as a kid he dreamed of playing for clubs like this because of the stars they have there and the history of the club.
” I think he was frustrated and tired from the situation at PSG last year. We saw some problems on the pitch between Paris Saint-Germain players and the national team, which was reflected in his game and mood.
“Maybe he’s interested in Real Madrid because he’s tired of what is here happened in France. I think he sometimes feels like he doesn’t get the same recognition as players like [Lionel] Messi or Neymar.
“Messi, before he came here, was the king of Barcelona. But for me the King of Paris Saint-Germain is Mbappe, not Messi or Neymar. With all the respect I have for Messi, Mbappe is still number one. ”
Mbappe has scored seven goals and seven assists in 13 Ligue 1 games this season, not to mention five assists in four Champions League games.
His form is all the more impressive when he went public with his desire to leave Ligue 1 for La Liga and felt the anger of the opposing fans who believed that the 22-year-old has grown a little too big for his boots in his home country.
“For me he has been the best player at PSG since the beginning of the season and still has a little time for his contract,” said Petit.
“At the beginning of the season he was whistled in every single stadium in France because the press was talking about his move to Real Madrid and he doesn’t want to sign a new contract with Paris Saint-Germain.” .
“But from the first minute of the season he was their best player, he took on that responsibility and showed real character. To be honest, what he does at his age makes me speechless. The next few months will be crucial for his career and I expect him to reach an even higher level. ”
Petit is overwhelmed by how well Mbappe can handle himself at the age of 22. The young Frenchman is extremely eloquent to the Paris media.
He said: “He was amazing in terms of goals and assists, but the way he developed on and off the pitch, how he did with the The press communicates and how he speaks. The maturity he shows is impressive for his age – especially with the pressure he gets in every single game.
“He has so much ambition and he also has so much quality. The fight is still young and it’s showing so much maturity on the pitch and he’s mentally improved since leaving Monaco for Paris Saint-Germain. ”
It has been suggested that Mbappe’s rampant form this season was on his Frustration over the bad European Championship for France and its young striker can be attributed on a personal level.
France were the absolute favorites in the European Championship betting, but were eliminated from the tournament on penalties in Switzerland, with Mbappe missing the decisive kick.
The French camp weren’t happy during the summer, but Petit believes the differences have been put aside and with Mbappe firing again – he scored four goals in a game against Kazakhstan during his international break last week – sees France in good shape Constitution to defend the World Cup next year.
“So what happened on and off the pitch at the European Championships has been clarified between the players, I think. And if you look at the last games they won you can see that.
“Okay, with all due respect to Kazakhstan, they weren’t the best teams in the world, but France did a very good job and above all, they seem to have fun on the pitch, which is the most important thing for me. ” It’s the best message you can send to the fans and to the people.
“During the European Championship you could see that they weren’t happy on the pitch, but they found their joy in each other again. For me this is the most important thing. We qualified for the World Cup and I think the way they did it was very good too, it was the best response to the critics. ”
France is currently 7/1 on the direct bets in Qatar in 2022, while Brazil is the favorite with 11/2.
