The president of La Liga ensures that Real Madrid had the means to afford the two young stars during the previous transfer window.
Real Madrid have enough money to sign and Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe if they want to. This is what La Liga president Javier Tebas says.
The Merengues saw several major offers for the French star rejected by Paris Saint-Germain at the end of August, despite the fact that the France international will soon be free as his contract expires in 2022.
The leaders of Madrid could therefore very well return to the charge for the international tricolor during the next offseason, while trying to attract Erling Haaland to their ranks. Javier Tebas considers this double operation possible. It is even certain that this could have been done during the previous transfer window despite the cost it represented.
Not to miss
“The UEFA system is broken”
“They [le Real Madrid] have sold 200 million euros worth of players, Tebas told Cadena COPE. They have enough money to sign both [Kylian] Mbappé and [Erling] Haaland together. They haven’t lost any money. On top of that, they sold assets. On the other hand, what I do not understand is that a club which loses 400 million euros, spends 500 million euros in salaries and can still refuse offers like that of Mbappé. The rules in France no longer hold, they harm the European market. The UEFA system is broken “
“We are going backwards from what should be in place. Investors are welcome, but not with unlimited contributions and constant losses. It would not be allowed in another sector.” They prefer to win the League of champions and lose a billion euros. That way they make their fans happy because they won the Champions League, but you ruined the football. It’s very dangerous”, added the Spanish leader.
Tebas’ comments follow a summer which saw La Liga lose their most attractive star to PSG, in this case Lionel Messi. Faced with serious financial difficulties, Barca were unable to retain their genius.
