Mbappé: Real Madrid want to save PSG

Like any footballer under 25, Kylian Mbappé settles his accounts via digital. And on this Saturday, October 8, 2022, the Frenchman did not miss the opportunity to deliver his risky message: #pivotgang . 

After a draw conceded in Reims (0-0), Mbappé indeed displayed his dissatisfaction with the position of number 9 that Christophe Galtier demanded of him. A reaction that can obviously make you smile at the sight of the statistics displayed by the interested party season after season, but which questions his real positioning, especially at a time when Real Madrid is only asking to make him their new top scorer .

The wing or the tip?

In his athletic characteristics, Kylian Mbappé obviously remains a winger whose qualities are only expressed by starting quickly and far in depth. Problem, at Santiago Bernabéu, this data is already the property of Vinícius Júnior. Because if he is more messy than the Habs in front of goal, the Brazilian has been able to broaden his offensive palette since the arrival of Carlo Ancelotti, thus becoming this fashionable hybrid, alternating lane play, on the right or on the left, and scoring role. The almost exact copy of Mbappé in the irremovable 4-3-3 of Real Madrid. And on the other side, hardly more luck.

Less explosive than his compatriot but much more intelligent in construction, Rodrygo has also turned into an essential pawn of Madrid's latest successes, both off the bench and as a versatile starter. It is thus to him that the keys to the attack were entrusted in the absence of Karim Benzema, chronically injured during this last 2022-2023 campaign. “  We have the impression that the arrival of Kylian Mbappé is one or two years late , underlines Jorge López Marco, said Tote, former second knife of Ronaldo, Raúl and Fernando Morientes Galactic period. It is obvious that his best position is left winger, but with the emergence of Vinícius Júnior and Rodrygo, it is difficult not to put him anywhere but in the axis.  »Therefore, what solution to avoid a "  pivot gate  " at each underperformance?

Find the compromise

"  Real Madrid could do as in previous years with Benzema and Ronaldo. By aligning one or the other at a point, then swapping them during the game. Vinícius Júnior can hardly do it because he relies exclusively on speed, but with Rodrygo, given his much less athletic profile and his game intelligence, it could work well  ”, continues the elder of the house. This scheme, the people of Madrid had also considered it for a time, before the Mbappé rumor returned. Thus, Kai Havertz had been the first surveyed. Appreciated by Ancelotti, the German, aligned as a false attacker at Chelsea and in selection – with a little less success – was to constitute a valid alternative to the departure of Karim Benzema, in his ability to participate actively in the game. Subsequently, c t is the name of Harry Kane that has been checked off the White House shortlist. Without any real need to describe it, the Englishman was then the most credible track to fulfill this role of goalscorer, able to free these wings from discord. The chosen one will ultimately be Joselu


Surprising from a distance, because less sexy than a flocked “  Mbappé  ” jersey, the arrival of the Spanish giant actually solves part of the problem for Real Madrid
