Mbappe has all the features of BBC

Mbappe has all the features of BBC

From a purely footballing point of view, the arrival of Kylian Mbappe to Real Madrid should not create problems of incompatibility, because the youngster has each of the attributes that BBC possesses.

It would be a problem of quantity, not quality.

Despite being just 18 years-old and still learning his trade, it seems that he would be able to totally harmonize with any of the BBC's components that, until proven otherwise, make up the offensive offensive line.

An analysis of his 2016/17 season allows us to deduce that he could alternate with all three of the trident without any apparent decrease in performance.

The positional evolution of Cristiano Ronaldo

In his short career, Mbappe has only known two positions.

At his first team, he was a pure center-forward in spite of his short stature.

Precisely because of his physical limitations, his coaches decided to play him on the left wing.

He would be glued to the line in the youth teams at Monaco and would cut inside or go down the line, beating his opponents at will.

In this sense, his trajectory in this short space of time is comparable to that of Cristiano Ronaldo, who from playing right wing at Manchester United because of the presence of Ryan Giggs on the other side, went on to play left-wing at Real.

Now he plays centrally and, apparently, his immediate future will be as a center-forward.

It was not until last season that Mbappe went on to play as the leading front man alongside Falcao in the 4-4-2 that Monaco deployed.

With Bernardo Silva on one side and Lemar on the other, Leonardo Jardim considered that his young star should play in more focused positions, near the area and near the goal - and he began to find himself there habitually.

That helped to ensure he would be the most expensive transfer in the history of football ... with permission from Neymar.

Watching Ronaldo and Mbappe exchanging positions in the 4-3-3 that Zidane likes so much would be more logical and would not create any problem for either player.

Nor is there a glimpse of a handicap between Mbappe and Benzema. Quite the opposite.

Besides the language, technically and tactically the two players are fully compatible.

They share the same understanding of the game and the spaces created by Karim with his movements are an invitation to be occupied by his compatriot, who likes to start from a deeper standpoint.

Direct competition with Bale ... if there are no surprises

The third member of the BBC, Bale, also has features in common with Mbappe, in particular his speed.

Now the Welshman has to recover the lost ground from last season before the presumed arrival of the Frenchman.

There's a pressure and a competitiveness that the Welshman may not be prepared for, opening the door for other clubs, such as Manchester United, that seem to have courted him in recent days.

Bartomeu: The players decide if they want to go

Leaving the door ajar for a potential move by Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, has suggested that the club's players will decide as and when they wish to leave.

Though he doesn't want Brazilian to go, his comment suggests it could be a possibility.

"Neymar is one of our best players and we don't want to lose him," Bartomeu said in an interview with the New York Times.

"We want him to continue with us, he still has four years left, but the players decide if they want to go so there's nothing more to say.

"We need him because, if we want to win [trophies], we need to have the best players."

Bartomeu also acknowledged that the El Clasico clash with Real Madrid on Saturday in Miami is "a good deal for both teams," and admitted that there may be more friendly matches between them in the coming years.

"Yes, we'll do it again in the future," he continued.

"Probably not next year, but in two more years, why not."

With new coach, Ernesto Valverde, having won two of two, the president is encouraged for the future.

"In the last two years, our rivals have learned a lot and now they know how to play against us," he explained.

"That's probably why we don't win everything.

"We know where the weak part of our game is and he [Valverde] will work on that."

Sergio Ramos returns to train with the group

Real Madrid can breathe a sign of relief after captain Sergio Ramos returned to training on Thursday.

The defender has recovered from the ear ailment that deprived him of playing the first two friendslies of 2017/18, and he rejoined his teammates for the morning session at UCLA.

Zinedine Zidane's side will soon travel to Miami to continue their pre-season with an El Clasico test against Barcelona.

Dybala: If an offer arrives for me then Juventus will decide

If Paulo Dybala is to leave Juventus then it would have to be with the Italian club's blessing, the player has revealed.

Speaking about what would happen if an offer were to be made for him, the Argentine said that the club would be the ones to consider it, before he would.

"I am happy in Turin, I feel good and I'm going to train to the maximum," he said after the match against Paris Saint-Germain, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"Am I going to stay 100 percent? I am fine here.

"If an offer arrives then it will first depend on Juventus and then on me."

Speaking about the match with the French side, which was won 3-2 by the Champions League runners-up, Dybala was pleased with the chance to work with new arrivals.

"It was a good match, which was useful to train and get used to the new teammates who have arrived for this season," he said.

Next up for Juventus is a pre-season clash with Roma.

Inter swat aside Ancelotti's Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich fell to a 2-0 defeat against Inter in a pre-season friendly in Singapore, with Martins Eder netting two first-half headers.

The two goals came from two crosses - one from the right in the ninth minute and the other from the left on the half hour mark - and were the result of suspect positioning from Mats Hummels and Felix Gotze.

New arrival James Rodriguez was another player under the microscope and one who coach Carlo Ancelotti will have been watching closely, but he failed to stamp his authority on the match in the same way he had done in previous pre-season outings.

The Colombian played the first 45 minutes, but the best he could conjure up was a free kick in the 35th minute, which needed saved.

Thomas Muller replaced the former Real Madrid man at the break and had slightly more impact, but Inter promised well and guarded their lead.

One final concern for Ancelotti to take away from this one will be the fact that Franck Ribery had to leave the pitch as the result of a knock to his ankle.

Cazorla: I have no strength in my tendon or any muscle mass due to injury

The injury is ideal for Arsenal playmaker Santi Cazorla has been continuing and the player revealed the extent to which he is struggling with the problem.

He hasn't played a first-team game since featuring for the Gunners in a 6-0 win over Ludogorets in the Champions League on October 19, 2016.

Problems with the Achilles tendon and sole of his right foot have resulted in the Spaniard undergoing eight separate operations in an attempt to correct the issue.

"I don't know how long it will take, but I'm satisfied that I'll be back soon," he told Onda Cero's 'El Transistor' program.

"Every time I leave the operating theater, I think everything will be fine and I'll be back again.

"The doctors have told me that a case like mine is one that they probably won't see again for a long time as it is unusual for an athlete.

"I had no strength in my tendon or muscle mass.

"Every day my son asks me if I will play again because he really wants to see me out on the pitch again and I really hope that it will happen soon."

Cazorla revealed that he is also taking inspiration in his fight for fitness from Sergio Asenjo, who has caught back time and time again from continuous cruciate ligament injuries.

"I was surprised by how well he was doing when I saw him," he added.

"He is an example to everyone.

"There is no better man to mirror myself on than him."
