One of the key names of the past summer transfer market was, without a doubt, Eerling Haaland. The young Norwegian star has become one of the most coveted players on the football planet.

Today there are many teams that have been interested in getting his services. However, Borussia Dortmund has flatly refused to let him out… at least for now. One of the teams that asked about Haaland was Paris Saint-Germain. Leonardo, the Sporting Director of the Parisians, has a good relationship with Mino Raiola, Eerling’s agent among many others. Until now, the figures for the possible transfer were not entirely clear, but according to ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport’, Raiola would have asked for a salary of 50 million euros a year.

This situation, however, has several aspects that must be taken into account. First, the cost of the transfer. According to various specialists, the market value of Haaland is approximately 120 million euros. On the other hand, according to sources, his termination clause is between 75 and 90 million, a figure much lower than the aforementioned market value.

According to the Italian newspaper, Raiola would have assured that the total amount of the operation is lower than said market value. Thus, the agent would have justified in this way the high emoluments of the player. Let us remember, in the same way, that Mino Raiola already spoke with the club about the signing of Gigio Donnarumma. In fact, the goalkeeper reached cost 0 upon termination of his contract with his former team. This could have been, among others, the moment when he would have had the conversation for Haaland.

The second name in contention in this whole affair, according to ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport’, is Kylian Mbappe. Throughout the summer it was rumored with the signing of him by Real Madrid. In this way, the departure of Mbappe would be key for Haaland to be able to join the Parisian club. In fact, there they would see him as the perfect substitute for French. Consequently, if Kylian finally lands at the Santiago Bernabeu, the best-positioned team to take Erling would be Paris Saint-Germain.

In the end we would be talking about a chip exchange between some of the most powerful clubs on the old continent. While it is true that there is still nothing official, it would fit a lot with the market situation and in the interests of all clubs… except, perhaps, Borussia.

Mbappe does not work with Messi and Neymar?

The arrival of Messi and the permanence of Mbappé offered Pochettino the possibility of aligning a dream trident. However, the first appearances of the three stars have not offered the expected result.

City will be the third team to test the effectiveness of the Parisian attack. Mbappé, along with Neymar and Messi, is less Mbappé. That feeling comes off after the two games in which the three coincided on the field. Against Bruges and against Lyon, Messi, Neymar and Kylian started. In this last Ligue 1 match, the French forward barely came into contact with the ball on 28 occasions, playing the entire match. He hadn’t offered such a low record in a season and a half.

More comfortable on the band In those two games in which the three have been on the field, Mbappé has not scored a goal but has given two assists. Curiously, those two goal passes came from the wing, a position where Kylian is most comfortable and that he must sacrifice when Neymar and Messi are on the field. Pochettino has already dropped that the trident, and especially Mbappé, go through a logical period of adaptation.

First they have to get to know each other on the field and assimilate certain movements that their teammates make. And this will not be easy. In fact, the first frictions with Mbappé’s controversial statements on the PSG bench in the last engagement of the Parisian team have already come to light.

To get those three figures of such depth to coexist and understand each other is not an easy task for Pochettino. Mbappé, for the moment, seems to be the most affected.

One of the best football players in the world, Lionel Messi (33), is a new PSG player, the French club confirmed on social media.

Messi arrived in Paris today for medical examinations and signing a contract. The transfer was also confirmed by PSG in a video, announcing that the attack of the most trophy-winning French club will be intensified by the legendary Messi.

Although the financial details of the contract have not been announced, L’Equipe previously revealed that Messi has agreed on a two-year cooperation, with the possibility of extending it for another year, and the Argentine will receive around 35 million euros per season. The same source stated that Messi refused to take the number 10 from Neymar and that he was ready to play in the number 19 jersey, and he joined the ranks of the Parisians as a free agent after the expiration of his contract with Barcelona.

By bringing in Messi, PSG formed perhaps the deadliest attack we have had the opportunity to watch in the world of football. In addition to the Argentine, the fantastic trio will also include Kylian Mbappe and Neymar, and when we add the other stars, it is clear that the Parisians have created the strongest team, at least “on paper”. Already this summer, Achraf Hakimi, Georginio Wijnaldum, Sergio Ramos and Gianluigi Donnarumma were brought in, and Danilo Pereira from Porto was bought out, so PSG fans could not have imagined a better transfer window.

Messi arrived in the youth categories of Barcelona in 2000 from Newell’s Old Boys, and has spent his entire professional career in the Catalans’ jersey. He scored 672 goals and 305 assists for Barca in 778 appearances, and since July 1 this year, he has been a free agent. In the Barcelona jersey, he won as many as 34 trophies, the most important of which are ten Spanish championship titles and four Champions Leagues, and a record six times he won the Golden Ball – recognition for the best footballer in the world. The official contract signing ceremony will take place soon.

Jerome Rothen has called on Kylian Mbappe to supply clarity on his contract situation at Paris Saint-Germain, with ongoing reports of interest from Real Madrid considered to possess turned the top of a World Cup winner.

Transfer speculation is nothing new for one among the foremost sought-after players in world football, but a talented 22-year-old is doing little to silence the rumours as he continues to delay the signing of fresh terms at Parc des Princes. Rothen isn’t convinced that a fearsome frontman wants to remain put, but is keen to means that nobody player is greater than the Ligue 1 title holders and that they will still thrive with or without Mbappe.

Rothen: “Is he convinced to stay at PSG? I don’t think so, since otherwise his contract would have already been extended. I think he felt that his future lay elsewhere. It is not a criticism, he has the right to think like that. I have the impression that he sometimes hides certain truths.”

“It feels like he’s not being direct and I don’t like that very much. Because it means that you are an opportunist, that your goal was to go to Real Madrid, but given the financial context of Madrid, you can’t anymore. That’s not very honest.”

“My message to him is ‘be clearer’. The club will continue with or without him.”

The France international, who has hit 116 goals for PSG through 157 appearances, has continued to play cards on the brink of his chest when it involves big future calls. He has been reluctant to be drawn into a debate regarding a replacement deal in Paris, despite his current contract being thanks to expire within the summer of 2022.

Others at Parc des Princes have stated a desire for a definitive decision to be made, with sporting director Leonardo trying to find a distracting saga to be delivered to an in depth .

Mbappe isn’t the sole superstar performer to be approaching the ultimate 12 months of his current contract. Brazilian forward Neymar is during a similar situation, but Leonardo has stated his belief that two notable deals are going to be done.
