Arsenal legend Thierry Henry is eyeing the prospect of seeing arguably three current world-beaters in one team, Vinicius, Mbappe and Haaland.
Henry said: “Viní Jr on the left, Mbappé & Haaland as forwards… someone please put them together in one team.”
Henry, who was an excellent attacker during his playing days, highly regards these three star attackers of the modern game.
He sees these three players (Vinicius, Mbappe and Haaland) as the “top-top” players of the present game irrespective of whatever level you place them personally.
Vinicius Junior has been impressive since kicking into form after his first season with Los Blancos, his first season wasn’t really wonderful but he has been monstrous afterwards.
The Brazilian was instrumental in Real Madrid winning the 2021/22 Spanish La Liga title alongside the 2021/22 UEFA Champions League.
The former Flamengo attacker has scored 60 goals for the Spanish capital based club and he has cemented a place in the starting XI of the side.
Vinicius contract details and salary
Vinicius penned a six-year contract with Real Madrid and he earns €3.2 million yearly in wages, which could increase to a total of €4 million if incentives are added.
Vinicius Jr market value
According to Transfermkt, Vinicius Jr market value is estimated at £120 million.
Fans definitely would want to see the “Vinicius Jr on the left, Mbappe and Haaland as forwards” supposedly deadly trio in view but it’s left to see which club would fork out a staggering amount to acquire all three players.
Kylian Mbappe rose to stardom after a monstrous 2016/17 season with AS Monaco. In that season, the Frenchman won the Ligue 1 and made it to the UEFA Champions League semi-final; he also received his first call to the senior national team of France.
He afterwards made a move to Paris Saint Germain, firstly signing on loan before penning a four-year contract after the end of the loan deal.
He has won the Ligue 1 five different times, once with Monaco and four times so far with Paris Saint Germain.
The former AS Monaco attacker has also won three Coupe de France titles, two Coupe De La Ligue alongside two Trophee Des Champions.
Mbappe has also won the biggest honor in men’s football winning the FIFA World Cup in 2018 and coming runners up with France in 2022.
Kylian Mbappe’s stats and salary
The Frenchman has scored 238 goals in 328 games in his career and he earns a staggering £73m yearly.
Kylian Mbappe’s market value and contract details
His market value is £180 million and his current deal with PSG expires in 2025 after he signed a 3-year extension with the club in 2022.
Straight away to Erling Haaland, the Norwegian has been sublime for Manchester City scoring 51 goals in 47 games.
Haaland joined Manchester City from Borussia Dortmund for a reported £51.2 in the summer of 2022 and he has slotted seamlessly into the side.
The former Molde man has been relatively successful in his career winning the Austrain Bundesliga on two occasions alongside one Austrian cup and one DFP-Pokal with Dortmund.
Erling Haaland has scored 206 goals in 247 games in his career so far and he looks like he won’t stop anytime soon.
Erling Haaland’s salary and market value
Haaland earns a mouthwatering £20 million yearly and Haaland’s market value is £160 million.
Vinicius, Mbappe and Haaland trio combined market value
Cummulatively, the Vinicius, Mbappe and Haaland trio which Thierry Henry is eyeing have a massive market value of £460 million and that might be a burden on any side.
However, teams like Real Madrid, Manchester City, Paris Saint Germain and maybe, Newcastle United who have a fat pocket can aquire the trident but with Financial Fair Play rules in mind, it would be hard to pull it off.
In terms of their goal contributions, the Vinicius, Mbappe and Haaland trio also has a combine goal contributions of 502 goals scored which definitely is astonishing.
