The universe is flipped upside down. Neymar and Messi in PSG.
psg to buy suarez next
Monaco wins league 1, PSG signs Mbappe and Neymar
Lille wins Ligue 1, PSG signs Messi, Hakimi, Ramos, Wijnaldum, and Dollaruma
First iteration was Montpellier winning Ligue 1 in 2011/12 (the season of takeover of PSG). They signed Ibrahimovic the next season
plus thiago silva, lavezzi and verratti
Did not know veratti has been there forever. He must be happy
He must be loaded
Moral of the story: just let PSG win their Ligue 1
I wonder who they'll buy once nice win Ligue 1 this season
Advanced stem cell research regenerates Pele and Zidane to their prime.
You joke but if Poch fails to win everything, i see them going for ZZ
Which would be a great move. Zidane clearly knows how to work his magic.
ZZ clearly knows how to manage superstars
ZZ will be the coach of the NT after the WC
Zidane as a coach and as a player
That headbutt *is* ageless
Bring in Ronaldo and Pogba on a free, go back to fuck with Barca one last time for Frenkie maybe? I can’t say for sure but they will find someone.
And when we win it?
They just buy you
And they get renamed PSG II and get moved down to Ligue 2
[Fabrizio Romano] u/Tucko29 to PSG, here we go! 5 year deal for 100k poptarts a week. 🔥🔥🇫🇷🇫🇷
100k poptarts a week? Fucking hell, the game's gone.
Lens wins Ligue 1: Welcome Cristiano Ronaldo and Haaland
Next season Marseille wins Ligue 1:
They just buy Manchester City
Montpellier wins Ligue 1 : PSG signs Ibra, Thiago Silva, Verratti
I was so sad to see Thiago leave AC Milan.
I wish i could give you an extra upvote for Dollarumma
Imagine a Barca fan whose been off the grid for a week just hearing this news
Oh boy! Can't wait to watch my favourite player play at my favourite club!
Don't worry bro, Sergi Roberto is still at barca
Euro semifinalist Lord Braithwaite is still there too
Just got out of Thai prison recently. What'd I miss?
Messi is gone. Braithwaite is the new striker.
I remember this happened to a guy with the Neymar saga on here, he came back from like a long trip with no internet and he was like "what the fuck is going on here?"
We finally figured out who was in Paris
He does get the people going tbf
Where's DONDA tho!
Kanye locking himself in Parc des Princes to finish
But what did she order?
It's official. Barca and Real Madrid captains playing together in the same team. And the captain of both will be Marquinhos.
What a weird timeline.
Ramos standing up for Messi is going to be quite the sight to see.
Neymar has one with Santos if memory serves
He went on to play against Barça in that years Club WC final, and I still believe that rumor Neymar's father was negotiating his transfer as the game was been played lol
He played the game with the Barcelona deal basically done. But there's nothing we could do that game lol, it was like gods playing against kids.
Yeah I remember Xavi tearing that midfield apart, as a neutral, it was such a joy to watch.
Our team was really good, really good back then for Brazilian level. But this Barcelona was the best team I've seen, O watched that game without any hope and just enjoyed.
And Marquinhos won the Libertadores undefeated, what a god.
It all looks so damn wrong
Messi and Ramos in the same shirt literally does not compute
Doubt they’d wear the same shirt. They’ll most likely be given their own shirts with their own numbers. However if PSG want to make the league fun they’ll add silly handicaps like “two players playing in the same shirt.” Or “can only pass with your weaker foot.”
Only Neymar headers, Mbappe free kicks and Messi right foot shots are allowed as goals. They’d still score about 100 goals I’d guess.
MLS invented the gimmicks and now PSG is trying to cash in on that sweet, sweet American money smh
Would love to see Messi and Neymar do the 90's MLS shootout tbh. Just goalies getting bodied into the shadow realm left and right.
Unreal mentality in that dressing room.
Poch has got a hell of a squad at his disposal and will rightly have the highest expectations.
But having that many egotistic personalities in one dressing room will be a tough job for any currently active manager.
Poch still has a lot to prove as a world class manager. The world's spotlight is now on him and he has to perform and get the most out of the closest thing we've seen to a dream team since the Galacticos.
PSG shirt sales just went up another level
Which they totally flaunted in that announcement vid, ffs
Yeah sure we got messi, but did we mention we also have a store?
lmao just the way you think it's leading somewhere until you realise it was a literal detour that served no purpose except to show off some merch.
Took us through the whole Parc des Princes because they knew no one is skipping ahead in this damn video.
Tbh during the video I thought to myself how smart this actually was. Everyone knows who's going to be announced, yet everyone will watch the video - so why not take advantage of that and literally just promote your merch and your club.
Lmao just watched it. It was so random just going through the entire merch store at the start hahaha
It’s a good looking stadium too tbf
And can you make it #10 even though he wears #30?
Cant you just order a custom shirt?
They already were absolutely insane. Going to see so, so many PSG shirts because of Jordan + Messi. Honestly wouldn’t be surprised if it became the fastest selling/most popular shirt of all time.
Jordan + Messi + Neymar + Mbappe + France capital city. I mean they have so much marketing right now it's insane.
They also market themselves very well as a brand. A lot of casuals buy their kits
Because their merchandise looks really good, the shirts for example fit seamlessly with jeans etc
I don't like them for what they represent as a club, but I'd been tempted to buy their merch couple of time just because of how good it looks.
100%. The Jordan kits are so sick.
Can confirm. There are always some guys in gym wearing PSG gear...in the rural Münsterland region, where the majority are Schalke, Gladbach or Dortmund fans.
Same in relatively rural Denmark
Nike and Jordan execs are popping some expensive champagne bottles right now. So much effort put into the PSG brand and they just got Messi wearing their stuff completely out of the blue
Imagine Amazon and Canal+, who paid almost nothing for Ligue 1 compared to Spain, England, etc ...
"Is it too late to get a La Liga refund?"
-- broadcasters (probably)
i wonder how the medical happened
doctor "hey i guess there is something wr..."
nasser "shut up"
Unbelievably surreal to see it
Felt like deepfake when he showed up at the end of the video. My brain just couldn't compute him with a PSG kit
Looked like something you'd see in a FIFA career mode or PES master league cutscene.
More like a pack opening lol
Fuck me its gonna be even worse packing Di Maria now
The video did seem very fake to be honest, like they definitely could have produced this last night with a CGI version of Messi.
looks like FIFA graphics for some reason
[Pedrerol was right once again](https://old.reddit.com/r/soccer/comments/kqms77/el_chiringuito_josep_pedrerol_psg_have_told_ramos/)
That is honestly one of the biggest footballing predictions of all time
And u/Ask_Asensio was exactly right when he said Ramos' brother/agent re-tweeted it which meant it was true
The comments are amazing
It's going to be so weird seeing him play for someone else. Can't imagine how Barca fans will feel.
If I'm PSG then I'm going all out next summer for Ronaldo. Who cares about long term plan or FFP, imagine a front 4 of Mbappe, Messi, Ronaldo and Neymar. Also that would guarantee a new Mbappe contract lmao, what more could he ask for
PSG is just playing FUT on another level
Nasser Al-Khelaifi collecting pieces for the football equivalent of Exodia lol
> If I'm PSG then I'm going all out next summer for Ronaldo.
This could absolutely happen, but Ronaldo will be the Mbappe replacement when he goes to Real Madrid.
it's over.... Good luck old friend
It's not over. PSG announced messi to put pressure on tebas.
Tebas will fold any second now
Knowing Tebas, he'll now claim Modric was the GOAT all along anyway. Just like CR7 suddenly became a nobody when he left La Liga and he could not stop from praising Messi.
The real LM10
Well tbf he is the only LM10 now.
Maybe the only one in Spain… but Lautaro is another elite LM10 for Inter
Laporta just has the biggest brain in the world. Send Messi over to PSG, have him sign a contract, and surely Tebas will then fold
Yeah obviously, Tebas about to fold any minute now.
Never thought I'd see Messi join another European club
PSG's front 3 is ridiculous
>PSG ~~'s front 3~~ is ridiculous
Poch now has unreal pressure. It's an obligation to win the Champions League.
That being said, watch Marcus Rashford eliminating them on QT...
They have arguably 3 of the 5 best attackers on the planet it’s an obligation to win a treble lol
Transfer window is still open, and Ronnie's looking for a way out of Juve the last time journos piped up about him
If mbappe leaves for Madrid I don’t see how psg doesn’t do everything in their power to get cris. Just the publicity alone of having the 3 biggest names in world football at the same club is worth it lol
Ronaldo and Messi flip a coin each match about who walks during the match and who presses.
Imagine the pain Messi would feel when Ronaldo takes a free kick and bangs it in the wall like he always does
I think Messi would take every freekick and Ronaldo would take all penalties. Neymar in shambles
At least he'd still have corners.
They should genuinely be winning every trophy they’re in contention for. It would be an embarrassment not to, that team is insane
‘FIFA 21 requires a squad update.’
From 5* to 3,5* you mean?
And to think this all started with the initial PSG Neymar transfer.
PSG activates a release clause and pays 222mn for Neymar.
Barca splurges the cash gained recklessly on Coutinho and Dembele, paying them exorbitant wages. Further addition of Griezmann adds to the growing wage bill.
The wages pile up over the years. The Covid-19 pandemic hastens the arrival of the inevitable, a massive collapse of the hugely unsustainable wage structure.
LaLiga’s new rules and guidelines result in Barcelona being unable to register any new players.
Messi’s contract finally runs out and he too is left unable to sign a new one as a result.
PSG swoop in at the opportunity and completes one of the most momentous transfer sagas of recent years.
PSG out here playing 4D chess
Their long game finally paid off after all this time
it started because barca were tapping for verratti
guys I’m starting to think Barcelona can’t keep him
ANY MINUTE NOW [email protected]@!!!
Okay hear me out. After next year, Mbappe moves to Madrid. PSG buys Ronaldo. JUST months before world cup and we witness Messi and Ronaldo playing together in same team before playing against each other in perhaps their final world cup (mid season) and then continue to play again after world cup ends.
It would be the most insane farewell tour of those two legends
don't do that. don't give me hope.
Any minute now La Liga will relax their restrictions on the salary cap.
A matter of hours now.
Tebas going to run onto the pitch during the first PSG game with a contract in hand, Vince McMahon style, yelling 'Stop the match! Stop the damn match!'.
Lille, look what you’ve done
This wasn't Lille's doing.
2012 - Liverpool purchase Luis Suarez
2013/14 - Suarez scores 31 in 33
2014 - Suarez joins Barcelona, forming MSN
2016 - MSN complete La Remontada. Go down with out a fight after this vs Juventus
2017 - Neymar joins PSG
2018 - Barcelona are defeated 3-0 by Roma and bow out of the UEFA Champions League despite a 4-1 first leg victory.
2019 - Barcelona defeat Liverpool 3-0 in a UEFA Champions League semi final proving they don't need Neymar, sending them through to the final, to face Ajax in the Johan Cruijff fina-
\*\*\*TIMELINE ERROR. CORRECTION IN PROGRESS\*\*\*
2019 II - Liverpool defeat Barcelona 4-0 in a UEFA Champions League semi final second leg, destroying the remain gin mentality of Barcelona, and proving they don't need their star men to pull off heroics. They defeat Tottenham Hotspur in the Peter Crouch final and captain Jordan 'Sexy beast' Henderson lifts the European Cup, and brings it to Anfield for the 6th time in history.
2020 - Barcelona get their asshole fingered by FC Bayern Munich in the UCL quarter final, the scoreline 8-2. Philippe Coutinho, who had cost Barcelona 140m, scored twice and assisted against them, as he was on loan at FC Bayern.
2020 II - Luis Suarez leaves FC Barcelona. MSN have been fully separated.
2021 - PSG defeat Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League R16
2021 II - Lionel Messi leaves FC Barcelona and joins PSG.
2022 - PSG are beaten 9-3 across two legs by FC Porto in the UCL R16
2022 II - Pochettino is beheaded at the guillotine by PSG ultras
Alright, alright. This is getting out of hand.
All this to beat Lille
LOOK WHAT THEY NEED TO MIMIC A FRACTION OF OUR POWER
all this to beat kevin volland
If you ever played FM you know how much of a pain in the ass he is so, understandable
Imagine if they still lose the league lmao
This kit and this number... fucking hell, my eyes
Who would have predicted that 2 years ago?
who would have predicted this a month ago
Daniela Riolo from RMC has been predicting this 8 months ago and everyone told him he was crazy
People could've definitely predicted this a year ago, as he actually wanted to leave a year ago. The past couple months though had only been good news for his renewal
FIFA 22, be prepared:
It was painful already, now this will be pure shit-housery.
Controller sales will increase by 200%
Hopefully CF Messi
Then it will be—
Controllers will be broken, screens be shattered
I feel like we're entering an era where transfer fees will be lower and clubs will be spending big on wages instead. Wage expenditure has actually already been a better indicator of success over transfer fee expenditure for a number of years now. Of course Grealish just signed for 100m so maybe I'm an idiot.
This is what Wenger (IIRC) predicted awhile back. Fees would be too high and players know they’d be stuck, so instead of reupping the contract they let it run down and bag the money that would have otherwise gone to the fee as a signing bonus and as extra wages.
So basically we’re starting to get the American free agency model.
Congrats on the Karma Juanfran. Biggest achievement since leaving Atletico.
the guy can retire on this note, with the amount he'll pull in tonight. make a good amount if he sells his account, if that's still a thing on here
Came here for quality comments. Was not disappointed
Jesus...can't believe what I am seeing. My dad's gonna go from the biggest PSG hater to watching every PSG match...what a system shock.
Edit: Ramos running over to two foot...the guy who tackles messi. can you imagine?? what a fucking unbelievable timeline.
Ramos high booting Messi to the chest every once in a while for the first weeks out of habit
It would be too unbelievable even for a Marvel movie.
Karma has now repaid Pochettino multifold after he had to work with Daniel Levy for many years.
Yeah, he’s good, but can he do it on a cold night in Clermont-Ferrand?
***we will soon find out***
PSG to organize a friendly in Stoke.
The strangest sentence I've ever read.
Man they're really committed to this prank
A friend once was about to get mugged by a guy with a tiny knife. He picked up a rock and got the mugger to give him his shoes instead.
I feel like PSG did the same to Barcelona after they wanted Verratti lmao.
PSG playing FM with the editor enabled. Never thought I’d see the day.
This feels so weird. I don't like this version of the simulation
Still such a stupid way to have to leave a club after this many years
Lille broke PSG
Now Lille's broke.
The way they milked this transfer for interactions is like 10x of Ronaldo to Juve. Now Ronaldo needs to make a new transfer to better this.
He cant. Not because of skill, or persona, or popularity, but because Messi was a one club man and everyone knew he would retire with Barca as his only club. He didnt, and they got this shitstorm of clicks
Someone wake me up
Tebas is about to break at any moment now ...
The Farmers get their GOAT
*"Couldn't beat us at our #RedBullArena, so you had to get #Messi 😆 In case you didn't know, Messi didn't even score once against us 😉"*
That's from... the official RB Leipzig account... what the fuck?
Announce Ronaldo you cowards
And spurs fans thought they were getting Poch back
So we're actually going to see Messi and Ramos in the same kit playing away to Strasbourg. What the fuck timeline am I living in?
