The board of directors of the Parisian team showed their annoyance at the talks that the white club had with the French star for months
The Paris Saint Germain (PSG), through its sports director, Leonardo, harshly criticized the ways in which Real Madrid seeks the signing of Kylian Mbappé, qualifying the attitude of the club as “unacceptable”, seeing the offer made (less than 160 million euros, according to reports) as a way to put pressure on the Spanish to appear that they sought the signing of the attacker.
“This proposal seven days before the end of the market seems like a Real Madrid strategy to get a no from us and then say that they have tried everything to have the player. It is far from what can be considered a sufficient value, far from what we pay for the same player with 18 years “, has pointed out that the PSG had to give to Monaco 180 million euros to sign him. Mbappe He is currently 22 years old and was a world champion at 19.
This is the message from his sports director, who in a conference call with various media this Wednesday has charged against the attitude of Real Madrid, who did not reveal the figure he received from Madrid to sign Mbappé, but hinted that he considers this as a strategy of the ‘White House’ to take the Frenchman for free next year.
“Verbally we have said no to Madrid. And we have not received another offer from Madrid. We have never wanted him to leave, nor have we imagined it, and we have made a very important offer and an even better second for him to renew. The player gave his word. Besides that he would not leave PSG free but the strategy seems at the end that it was that, that he left free.
“We have seen a lot of information that they had no money, that there were debts in Madrid. I cannot confirm it but it is what has been said,” he said..
Leonardo assured that Mbbape He is free to leave the club, but he indicated that the Frenchman will leave under the conditions established by the institution and one of them is not to leave for less than what he paid the PSG for their services to Monaco.
“Kylian is the center of the project, but he is not above it. But if he stays or leaves, it will always be with our conditions. We cannot change the plan one week after the market closes. If a player wants to leave, he leaves , but under our conditions. The position of the club – he repeated – has always been to stay with Kylian and renew the contract. There have been several meetings for that and it remains our goal. We have made a proposal to Kylian at the level of the other top players and we have even done more recently. “
In addition, he recalled that under the agreement established then, he would have to give part of the money he would receive from Madrid to Monaco, about 35 million euros.
However, below he has dropped that “If a player wants to leave, we are not going to retain him. But he will leave with our conditions. We do not close the door to anyone, but we have not received any new offer” from Madrid.
He added that for two years the Madrid team has “A disrespectful, incorrect and even illegal attitude, since you do not have the right to contact a player directly. It is unacceptable.”
Nor has he got rid of the criticism of the sports director himself Mbappe, that at PSG had him “He promised that he would not leave the club free. So we cannot say that we are happy.”
