@yamkeliano it might look like they are but they are not its the crazy price tag in the market these days It's a good deal either way. Dembele is 20. Plenty of years to come good. Mbappe cost a whopping €180million coutinho 160million and real spent 75 million for Morata who warmed da bench its time we accept the crazy price tags in the market
