Kylian Mbappé may be the best goalscorer in Ligue 1, but he’s still getting his hip heated by the Canadian. She feels Jonathan David’s warm breath on her neck and can even recite David’s name in front of her on weekends.
The French striker was the top scorer of the World Cup with eight free kicks. He also leads the scorer rating in France with 13 successes after 19 games.
But Jonathan David is not ringing the bell with 12 goals in the north of the country. So, as one commentator pointed out, he could overtake Mbappe at the weekend.
Both forwards will appear on Sunday. David and Lille (6th, 10-5-4) will be in Nice’s side, while Mbappe and Paris Saint-Germain (1st, 15-2-2) host Reims at the Parc des Princes.
In both cases, the problem is almost the same, as Nice (6-6-7) is 10th with 25 points, followed by Reims (5-4-10).
David is therefore just behind Mbappe with 12 goals, which puts him level with Lorient’s Terem Moffi.
However, what should make the Ottawan a little velvety is noting that he is ahead of a certain Neymar in the scoring charts.
Mbappe’s teammate has scored 11 times this season, tied with Monaco’s Wissam Ben Yedder and Lyon’s Alexandre Lacazette.
If we look a few lines below, we see Lionel Messi’s name in 11th place with eight goals.
The youngster David from Ottawa, let’s remember, has been delighting Lille fans since he arrived there in 2020.
Last weekend’s performance against Troyes allowed him to become the first foreign player to reach the 40-goal mark in Ligue 1 for Lille.
Let’s just say it’s a nice gift to himself as he turns 23 on Saturday, the day before this latest 5-1 win.
Since joining David Lill, he has been a regular as a metronome. In the 2020-21 season, he scored 13 goals and scored another 15 last season. With 12 wins already and half a season to play, he is sure to have the best year of his career.
David is lethal around the opposition goal, not just when he’s unleashing one of his powerful shots.
He also knows how to be dangerous on the ball to set the stage for his teammates.
He also provided four assists, which puts him alone with Mbappe in an exclusive group of players who have scored at least 15 goals in the past three seasons.
Based on these wonderful statistics, we advise Lille to take advantage of David while he is there, as he could migrate to a more prestigious club in the near future for an indecent fee.
When talking about a prestigious club, it’s hard to find a better one than Manchester United, where almost all the big names have passed through at one day or the other.
It seems that the “red devils” are dying to get their hands on him. The English club really likes prolific and high-profile strikers. David is also quite slim, his physique seems tailor-made for the Premier League.
The main interested party said that he no longer knows if he “sees himself anywhere but the Premier League”.
According to various sources, “Lille” will agree to part with the star player for 50 million euros (72.7 million Canadian dollars).

Former Montreal Impact coach Jesse Marsh is in turmoil at Leeds United. His side sit just two points above the Premier League relegation zone and there are rumors of a mutiny among his players. All is not bleak as Leeds beat Cardiff 5-2 on Wednesday to win their first FA Cup in six. Despite everything, doubts remain, but Marsh will fight them with the determination with which he is known. “My team is united, but I know it’s hard for everyone to be patient and if we don’t get results, I’m in the hot seat,” Marsh said after the game. “The rumors that the players are turning on me is terrible porridge for cats. »
Manchester City is strong
“Manchester City” is effective not only on the field. The English club is the first financial power in Europe with a turnover of 731 million euros (1.064 billion turnover), according to Deloitte. Also in the top 5 are Real Madrid (€713.8 million / $1.04 billion), Liverpool (€701.7 million / $1.023 billion), Manchester United (€688.6 million / $1.004 billion) and there is also a trio of English clubs. Paris Saint-Germain (€654.2 million/C$953.3 million). We see the dominance of the Premier League, which occupies 11 of the first 20 places. Chelsea (8th), Tottenham (9th), Arsenal (10th), West Ham United (15th), Leicester (17th) in the top 20 , “Leeds United” (18th), “Everton” (19th) and “Newcastle United” (20th).
Memphis between Barcelona and Madrid
This is about Memphis Depay, who had to relocate shortly after the FC Barcelona forward left for Atletico Madrid. Indeed, there was an agreement in principle between the two clubs earlier this week. A transfer fee of three million euros is rumored to be a bargain for a player like Depay, but Barça were in no position as he was out of contract in six months. It appears that the Dutchman, who scored 14 goals in 42 games for Barcelona, will sign a two-and-a-half-year contract with Atletico, which will therefore run until the end of the 2025 season.

Former member of the Italian national team Dino Baggio After the death of Sinisha Mihajlovic (leukemia) and Gianluca Vialli (pancreatic cancer), he threw a stone into the pond. He claims that the culprit of these premature deaths will be the widespread doping system in the 1990s. On the TV7 channel. I don’t know why, but there was always doping. We never accepted weird stuff because there was a percentage you had to respect. But over time you have to see if certain substances are good, can be eliminated or remain inside the body. I’m afraid it happens to a lot of players too. There was a lot of doping in my years. »

According to French media, bids are coming from abroad as well, as West Ham United are willing to shell out €25 million (C$36.4 million) to acquire his services.
