Kylian Mbappé will he leave PSG to join Real Madrid during the next summer transfer window? The Spanish press thinks so and has assured for months that the Madrid club have already prepared everything to welcome the 22-year-old striker at the end of the current season. Florentino Pérez, the president of the Merengues, broke the silence on this issue.
Florentino Pérez takes stock of the Mbappé file
One year from the end of his contract, Kylian Mbappé has still not given its leaders a response to an extension. A slowness of the French international that makes foreign media think that the player is increasingly considering leaving Paris Saint-Germain to join Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid this summer.
Moreover, Sport recently revealed that the Real coach would have taken advantage of the last international break to directly call the young 2018 world champion to reiterate his interest and ask him not to initial a new lease with PSG and thus forcing Nasser Al-Khelaïfi to place it on the market at the end of the season. Guest of the show El Chiringuito on Spanish television Monday evening, Florentino Pérez was questioned on the subject. And the boss of the Spanish club wanted to be very clear: Real did not approach Mbappé.
“We’re here to talk about the Superleague. In eight years, I’ll be talking about something else ”, initially defended Pérez on the question of the journalist who asked if he intended to recruit the number 10 of Paris SG this summer. “Look, I am wearing a mask and I hear ‘sign Mbappé’. What should I say ? Rest easy… The truth is that he is a very good player. Madrid needs a change. I am not talking about Mbappé. But we won a lot, a lot has happened. We must recover hope and I am working on that “, launched the Spanish businessman at the insistence of Josep Pedrerol, the presenter of the show.
Alerted on the extension of Bondy’s child which is slow to materialize unlike that of Neymar, Pérez ensures that he has no clue about the future of Mauricio Pochettino’s protégé. “I haven’t spoken to him. At least for the moment (smile). I’m joking. On its extension, I do not know. I haven’t spoken with him for several years. I don’t know more than what I read in the newspapers ”, answers the boss of the White House. “Can you assure the supporters that you are going to recruit Mbappé?” “, relaunches Josep Pedrerol.
And Pérez to cut it short: “No, no I’m not saying anything. I’m just doing my best so that Real don’t lose their place. And with that, the supporters know I’m doing my best. But the truth is that we were supposed to win € 900m this year and we’re only going to win 600. But Real were also broke when I arrived in 2000 and I settled the situation. ”
No exchange possible Kylian Mbappé – Vinicius Junior
Arrived in 2017 against a check for 180 million euros, Mbappé is linked to Paris Saint-Germain until June 2022. In negotiations with the Parisian management with a view to an extension, the former scorer of AS Monaco could finally continue his adventure in the French capital, especially more … than Florentino Perez excludes any idea of an exchange including Vinicius Junior in Operation Mbappé.
“Vinicius Junior is untouchable. He won’t leave Real Madrid, even if PSG ask for Vinicius [dans des négociations pour Kylian Mbappé] », Explained Florentino Pérez. The top scorer in the French league could therefore stay an additional season in Paris rather than claiming an exit voucher this summer.
