So if you're a supporter of Southampton the last 15 years you've got to see elite talent and....the knowledge you'll never win anything and will be fighting relegation every now and then. Kinda sucks doesn't it?
In a North American market (i.e. franchise system), they would probably have been excluded from the market and have their best talent taken/lured away without commensurate compensation. The odds may be stacked against them in England/Europe but they are not completely excluded and have an identifiable path on which they can take their supporters on journeys. Furthermore, they can take this path much further than they could in North America.

I admire your appreciation for the game and ability to do so without having to anchor your ship to a port. It's also entertaining when someone cannot deflect attention from their inability to rationally defend their team's shortcomings by attacking your favourite team.

“Like I’ve always said, Real Madrid is a dream for anyone, it’s one of the biggest clubs in the world,” said Pogba, speaking before France’s Euro 2020 qualifiers against Moldova and Iceland. “There is also Zidane as a coach and it’s a dream for anybody who likes football. For now, I’m at Manchester. We don't know what the future holds. I'm at Manchester and I’m happy.”
that's why I always cringe when fans suggest he's a leader and captain material. Is it really that hard to just shut up and do your job? Completely unnecessary can of worms right there, but I'm sure he's earned a nice pat on the back from Raiola.

When are the Saudis just going to buy Raiola his own team?

He can own it, manage it and represent all the players.

Or...I'd like to negotiate a new contract.
