He wouldn't come here but why on earth wouldn't we want him here? He's one of the best attackers on the planet. He'd be an amazing addition to our team.
Because his attitude looks pretty unsavoury, and if we think Ronaldo needs everything his own way, this guy is even worse.

We've all seen that clip of him just sulking off in another direction while an attack was happening.

The idea he'd not suit ETHs style or fit us is pretty weird. It's like saying a young Ronaldo or Messi wouldn't suit. They suit anyone and everyone. Mbappe isn't just world class, he's in the absolute top bracket. If you can't work with that as a manager you're in the wrong job.

It's never happening mind.

Someone that is comfortable attacking from the left side isn`t exactly a top 10 priority for us. But he might be talented enough however! Still only 23 somehow, feels like he has been around for a long time now.

Was already scoring goals for Monaco in the CL at age 17.

There’s no doubting Mbappe is a world class talent BUT he’s fallen out with PSG over the fact he wants to be a support striker with a free role and for France he plays from the left where we have Rashford, Garnacho and Sancho already.

Personally I’d much rather we went with someone who wants to play centrally, who can link play, hold the ball up and has pace to run in behind rather than Mbappe who’d also cost a fecking fortune and we still need a midfielder, a centre back and maybe a keeper as well as a striker.

No need to worry; there is no way he even considers joining us at the moment and probably not ever.

Been reported a lot. Mbappe wants a central 9 as a focal point because it opens up space for him coming from behind or cutting in.

Similar to Firminos role for Salah, Higuain/Benzema for Ronaldo, Suarez for Messi or Mandzukic for Robben.

Right now he is forced to play 9 in PSG due to Messi and Neymar being more of 10/11 so he can't come from behind with full speed for PSG like he can with Giroud on the pitch.

There's been a lot reported about Mbappe, hardly any of it to be true. He definitely prefers to have a target man to work off of, but hardly enough to request to leave the club. Mbappe's been the most misreported footballer for the past year, especially once he decided to turn down a certain Spanish club.

Don't shoot the messenger. I think Mbappe is a great player that has been better than Messi and Ronaldo for 4 years now. His only competition is Haaland and Neymar in the offensive positions, the old legends have been on a decline for a while. I wouldn't be surprised if Mbappe manages to equal Pele and win 3 world cups.

I'm not shooting you down, I'm shooting the garbage media, I don't blame you for listening to them, but they've been completely off-the-mark with him, from him joining Madrid, to him wanting Neymar out, to now wanting out of PSG and feeling 'betrayed', to repeating the story again after he denied it himself. It's just been nonsense after nonsense, stories coming out of Spain left and right because they can't get over the fact he didn't come. Nothing against you, I promise.

I feel both his levels of brilliance and laziness are high. Does hardly track back and does not put a shift in too often, but then he has his moments of brilliance. But getting him is anyhow not realistic for us but if (hypothetically), I'd have some reservations. We don't need another ego boosted individual

Cnuts win you trophies, I don't understand this building a winning team with a bunch of nice guys who like to run.
If I ever need to choose Mbappe or ETH, I'd go with Mbappe.

And we’d be back in the shit when he goes to madrid in a few years. Let ETH build the team the way he wants, in a sustainable way. He will get us to the good times

Still 7 months to the summer. Things can change quickly in football. A CL qualification and the club getting sold to an ambitious owner willing to invest primarily in football success...

Mbappe in Premier League would be an ultimate cheat code.
But i think he'll finish at Madrid, even fan are pissed he rejected them last summer. I'll bet you everything will be forget next summer after a huge season from him.
