Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has aimed another jibe at France and Paris Saint Germain star Kylian Mbappe after he snubbed Real Madrid to stay at Paris Saint Germain,
The 23 years old was set to join Real Madrid as a free agent in the summer after Paris Saint Germain had rejected Real Madrid’s €150million bid to sign the World Cup winner. However, through the intervention of the French president and other influential people, Kylian Mbappe decided to sign another three years contract at Paris Saint Germain.
Florentino Perez seems not happy with Mbappe betrayal and has earlier criticized the French international in an interview with El Chiringuito. during the interview , Florentino Perez said: “Mbappe conveyed to the whole world his desire, his dream, to play for Real Madrid – he stated that publicly. We wanted to do it in August but it wasn’t possible, they wouldn’t let him go.
“It took a long time. We had to wait a year, that year passed and then the situation changed. I think it was due to political pressure and I think it was also economic.
“[PSG] practically offered him not only to be the leader of the team but also of the management. It was at that point that we saw it wasn’t the same Mbappe that we wanted to sign. He changed his dreams as a result of pressure.
“If a kid is called by the president of a country (Emmanuel Macron), of course, it’ll affect him. What makes no sense is that he did it at all – it influenced him a lot – but he could have succeeded at Real Madrid, just as Zidane did, and still be a source of pride for his country.
“Madridistas will be disappointed, but the Mbappe who wanted to come to Real Madrid was not this Mbappe.”
Perez has been caught on camera throwing a jibe at the Paris Saint Germain Star again.
What did Florentino Perez say?
The Real Madrid president who was interacting with Real Madrid supporters and signing autographs, and taking pictures with them was caught on tape when a real Madrid fan asked him not to sign Mbappe now responded by saying “Poor man, he will already be sorry”.
Kylian Mbappe’s new contract at Paris Saint Germain makes him the highest-paid player in the World with a salary of €50 million and was also given a signing bonus of €100 million.
Real Madrid seems to have already forgotten Mbappe’s betrayal with the signing of Aurelien Tchouamen for €100 million from Monaco and also snatching Antonio Rudiger on a free transfer from Chelsea.
