PSG’s Downfall? 😬

“Galacticos didn’t win the Champions League, so it’s part of it…” -Neymar

What started as a Big Three is now a Big Zero according to the latest soccer news. After months of rumors, Kylian Mbappe has made the news of his PSG exit official, at least internally, per The Athletic’s David Ornstein.

After a very public spat, the two sides were able to patch things up for Mbappe to play this season. Yet, the star has informed the club that he is throwing up the deuces at season’s end. This has become the biggest soccer news since Jurgen Klopp announced his eventual exit from Liverpool.

Mbappe has yet to announce his next stop but rumors are swirling about a potential move to Real Madrid. The news now marks the end of what was once a hopeful era featuring Mbappe, Messi, and Neymar.

Mbappe’s stats did not disappoint notching 31 goals in 30 total competitions for PSG this season.

 

How Did the PSG Big Three End With a Big Zero Champions League Trophies?

An era that underachieved with no Champions League trophy to show for all that spending. It feels like a prudent moment to revisit Neymar’s comments on the team’s failings during a July 2023 interview with the YouTube channel “Que Papinho.”

Football stuff,” Neymar said at the time, per PSGTalk.com. “Galacticos didn’t win the Champions League, so it’s part of it. We had a very strong team. Me, Messi, and Mbappé are three guys who are the best in the world

“We know that, but unfortunately, it didn’t fit. It wasn’t good for us. Obviously, we wanted to win everything, [and] we were close in the locker room, but sometimes football is not right [or] fair. It’s not like a cake recipe.

Figurative trophies were replaced by moving trucks and infinite bags of cash. Messi left PSG to become the face of the MLS with a deal that included kickbacks from Adidas and Apple.

Months later, Neymar left PSG for the money printing press known as Al-Hilal. Mbappe finishes up the sad trifecta for PSG supporters but his next club is TBD.

 

Mbappe Continues to Mostly be Linked to Real Madrid

It may not be official but it would be a major upset if Mbappe is not playing soccer games for Real Madrid next season. ESPN’s Julien Laurens reported that Mbappe’s decision is “paving the way” for a move to Spain. Yet, the soccer insider also added that Real Madrid is awaiting confirmation on the team’s long-standing offer.

ESPN reported on Feb. 3 that Mbappé decided to join Madrid this summer — finally ending the Spanish club’s yearslong pursuit of the France international — although he had yet to inform either club of his decision,” Laurens wrote on February 15.

Sources at Madrid insist that the player has still not responded to the offer reported by ESPN weeks ago, although they hope Mbappé will reply soon, believing they have done all they can to convince him to join.

As an Orlando Magic fan, the trio’s PSG exit reminds me of how Magic fans often discuss not winning an NBA championship With Shaquille O’Neal and Penny Hardaway. Time will tell if this next era of PSG football will be better than the last, but it surely won’t be as disappointing.

We shall see if next season’s Real Madrid schedule will feature Mbappe.
