The Saudi Pro League has taken the world by storm, Cristiano Ronaldo went there and said this league would attract the best talent, and now they’re attracting the best player in the world; Kylian Mbappe.

French captain Mbappe is now looking to leave Paris Saint-German (again) and this time they cannot throw the money at him. Kylian wants out of the French team he’s been at for the past six years and that could be due to several reasons.

It could be due to the revolving door of managers with Galtier, Pochettino, Tuchel, Ancelotti, and Emery coming and going from PSG, not lifting the Holy Grail of European football, the Champions League.

It could be the clash of egos between him and other players such as Leo Messi, Neymar, Marco Verratti, and Sergio Ramos, all of who have left or been put on the transfer list.

The big thing is that Mbappe wants a new challenge, a new experience to prove he is the best in the world. Unbelievable that people still have doubts after him scoring a hat trick in a world cup final and suffering from chronic back pains from carrying PSG in the Champions League.

The club he wants is Real Madrid, and they want him too, but the owners of PSG don’t have the greatest relationship with Real Madrid, because they want their best player of course. The only problem with the interest is that PSG will try anything to not sell Mbappe to the Santiago Bernabeu, even sell him to Saudi Arabia.

The biggest news of the day in sports was the offer that Saudi League side Al-Hilal made for Kylian Mbappe; a world record fee of €300 million. That’s just the tip of the iceberg. If he accepts, which is unlikely, his contract would be 1 year €700 million! The best part is that he can leave after one year and go to his dream club Real Madrid for nothing.

Saudi Arabia is taking over the world of sports with the PIF taking over Newcastle United, splurging on the Saudi Pro League, and taking over reigns at the PGA Golf Tour. For me, it is just the Saudis making the rest of this world richer, and with inflation where it is now, you can’t blame some of us for taking that money.

Kylian Mbappe, the world’s best player heading to a league freshly developed and becoming a billionaire by the end of his contract. Does this hurt the sport in the long run or does it open more opportunities? Players who are not good enough for the top five leagues heading to Saudi Arabia to earn for their families and make it a better league. It’s their world the Saudis, we’re just living in it.



I was planning an article for the NBA finals and to sum up the season on a whole, Denver winning their first title, Miami’s Cinderella story, blah, blah, blah, but the news of Porzingis to the Celtics really got me fuming. Don’t get me wrong, Kristaps is a decent player, but decent is not good enough for a team the calibre of the Boston Celtics.

The unicorn has his positives, but he is not what Boston needed, immediately anyway. Yes Al Horford is aging and may retire and Robert Williams is physically unable to play two games in a row consistently, but the obvious acquisition should have been a Point Guard. The ridiculousness of this trade is that Boston could have waited a couple more hours and gotten him as a free agent. A center could have waited until deeper into the offseason.

The part of this deal that has me fuming is the trade of Marcus Smart. I mean come on, he may not put up 30-10-5, but he was essential to the success in the last two seasons. The best defensive guard in the entirety of the NBA being traded to Memphis is probably the most “head in the sand move” ever. I genuinely worry about anyone who can say “this is a good deal for Boston.” Yeah sure Ja Morant is suspended for a month or two but what happens when he’s back? They are going to be a force to reckon with.

Look, Memphis have one of the better rosters in the Western Conference and they have only gotten better. This deal is like when Arsenal sold Cesc Fabregas to Chelsea and then witnessed him become a champion before challenging properly for a title, a travesty.

In my opinion, Memphis are definitely one of the favourites to rep the West in the NBA finals next season as Phoenix have no bench, Denver hasn’t made any moves yet (even though they don’t need to) Chris Paul just went to Golden State but it’s basically one man down because of injuries.

Can I say as well the absolutely imbecilic job that Brad Stevens is doing as a GM? My theory; jealousy. Jealousy of Ime Udoka. Jealousy that Ime did in 10 months what Brad couldn’t do in six years, and lets be honest, fired him for having sex. The Celtics clearly needed a guard as first priority after witnessing a possibly historic comeback from 3-0 down get wiped out due to Jaylen Brown taking threes like it was a Black Friday sale and turning the ball over like a snowball down Mt. Everest.

But no, lets trade the ONLY competent ball handler in the team. Now that Beal is gone, Lillard is seemingly going to the 76ers, who will the Celtics get?

Inter Miami’s preparations for Lionel Messi’s highly anticipated debut have taken an extreme turn as they expand their temporary stadium.

Inter Miami’s preparations for Lionel Messi’s highly anticipated debut have taken an extreme turn as they expand their temporary stadium.

The iconic Argentine, who recently arrived in Fort Lauderdale after a vacation in the Caribbean with his family, is set to embark on a new chapter in Major League Soccer (MLS) following his illustrious career in Europe with Barcelona and PSG.

In anticipation of Messi’s unveiling, Inter Miami has planned an official welcoming ceremony on July 16 at DRV PNK Stadium. The event promises to be a grand spectacle featuring performances from renowned entertainers, with reports suggesting that pop superstar Shakira and rapper Bad Bunny are being lined up to perform.

To accommodate the expected surge in attendance, the club’s owners have taken measures to increase the seating capacity by adding bleachers to the corners of the stadium. This addition will allow approximately 3,000 more fans to witness the historic moment.

Goalkeeper Nick Marsman, however, has expressed concerns about the temporary nature of the stadium and its ability to handle the influx of fans drawn by Messi’s star power. Marsman revealed worries about the lack of infrastructure, such as gates and proper security, as well as the potential for unauthorized access to the pitch. He believes that the club is not adequately prepared for Messi’s arrival.

In a resourceful move, NBC Miami reports that the new stands were sourced from an F1 facility at Hard Rock Stadium in nearby Miami Gardens. While Inter Miami has plans to eventually relocate to a state-of-the-art facility, the completion of this ambitious project is expected for the 2025 MLS season.

The frenzy surrounding Messi’s move to Inter Miami has reached a fever pitch nationwide, sparking what has been dubbed “Messi Mania.” The announcement of his transfer decision, which snubbed a return to Barcelona and the lucrative Saudi Pro League, has captivated fans across the country. Tickets to see Messi in action for his new team sold out within a day of the announcement, and resale prices on platforms like StubHub have soared to as high as $20,000 (£16,000).

The highly anticipated debut of Messi, along with fellow incoming superstar Sergio Busquets, is expected to take place later this month in a Leagues Cup clash against Mexican club Cruz Azul at DRV PNK Stadium.
