Real Madrid have a unique prestige

PSG have dominated Ligue 1 since Qatar’s ownership took over, but they have yet to win a Champions League title. As last season’s appearance in the final showed us, they are getting close now that they have Kylian Mbappe and Neymar. But before letting Cristiano Ronaldo go to Juventus, Los Blancos were the kings of Europe and had three straight Champions League titles to boast. It was an unprecedented feat.

In total, Real have won 13 Champions League titles, which is nearly double the club that is in second place, Milan with seven. Not to mention, Los Blancos have won 34 league titles in a scene that is now hotly-contested with Atletico Madrid and traditional title rivals Barcelona. PSG are finally in a real title fight this season against Lille and Lyon, but that honestly speaks to how disappointing they have been in the league this season. Neither Lille nor Lyon had any real European football success this season.

Real have the most social media followers of any club. They have the most Champions League and La Liga titles. There is no club that can measure up to them. They are the measuring stick by which every other big club is compared to, which is why opposing fanbases do everything they can to compare themselves with Real Madrid, to the point of ridiculousness.

If Kylian Mbappe wants to be known as one of the biggest legends to grace the game, Real have the credibility that PSG have been unable to purchase. They have the lineage, and it’s to a level that no other club in the world can match. And that’s probably why they are seen as the only real challenger for Mbappe’s signature. Aside from cash, PSG have little else to offer.
