The Brazilian, Leonardo, the sporting director of Paris Saint-Germain, announced that the club rejected an offer from Real Madrid to include striker Kylian Mbappe, this summer, because it was “inappropriate”.
And Spanish and French press reports revealed, on Tuesday, that Real Madrid made an offer of 160 million euros, to include Kylian Mbappe.
Leonardo confirmed that Mbappe would like to leave Paris Saint-Germain, but the French team will not agree to the player’s departure except on his terms.
Leonardo said during his statements today, Wednesday, in a press conference: “Paris Saint-Germain’s position has always been to keep Kylian, to renew it always, for two years, the goal was and remains the same and still is. We made him a very important offer two months ago, . …but to me this is like Real Madrid’s strategy.”
Referring to Real Madrid’s offer, he said: “We consider that the offer is not enough. I will not confirm the numbers, but it is about 160 million, which is less than what we paid for. It was 180 plus bonuses, but this goes beyond that. It’s the way it was done, disrespect we did. Everything is until Mbappe is with us and one week we will not change the plan. Kylian is the center of the project, but he is not above him, but if he stays or leaves, he will always be on our terms. If he wants to leave, he will leave, but on our terms like any other player.”
Regarding the response to the offer, he said: “Verbally we said no to Madrid, and we did not receive another offer from Madrid. PSG are free, but the strategy seems in the end that he is left free, we have seen a lot of information that they have no money, that there is debt in Madrid, I can’t confirm that but that’s what I know.”
And the Brazilian continued: “If someone wants to leave, no one will destroy our dream. The club will protect itself. This is what I do. We do not negotiate through the press. If Madrid uses the press to negotiate, then this is not our case. We have to pay Monaco (there is talk of $35 million)”.
There was a two-year global strategy to get to this moment and make a bid in one week at the end of the market that you know we’re not going to accept and say, ‘Well, we tried and they didn’t want it and we would have the right to sign it for free,’ Kylian has always made it clear he’s not going.”
He continued his talk about Mbappe: “I have always said that he will not be released. We have talked a lot with Mbappe, with him and with his parents and his surroundings. We have come a very long way with him. We have never opened the door for him but we have done so before looking for I know that people say I want to sell, But Nasser and I have the same opinion.”
And about Mbappe’s request to leave, he said: “Doesn’t it look like this? Why would Madrid make an offer then. If he tells us that he wants to leave? You know me well, internal matters are internal, I do not want him to leave and there are many things that remain inside.”
And he continued about his free departure next summer: “Our goal is to renew him and keep him under our circumstances. This is not only for Kylian, for all players, I think our position is very clear.”
On the promise to leave Mbappe: “How can we do that, a promise like that, what does that mean? The Spanish press knows more than anyone else, more than me, Madrid used him and they talked about Kylian without shame, it’s very disrespectful and illegal.”
And about whether his departure would be a betrayal next summer: “Our goal is for him to stay and renew, Real Madrid made an offer and Mbappe always promised that he would not leave the club free, we will see in a year.”
And about the possibility of another show arriving on August 29: “For the twenty-ninth day, there are four days left and it is eternal, but this is not important.”
And about an alternative plan in the event of Mbappe’s departure, he said: “No, there is no plan B, the atmosphere in which we live is very positive, and the excitement around the world, and we have never thought of a plan without Mbappe.”
And Leonardo concluded his statements, saying: “I think we talked a lot and you know the position of Paris Saint-Germain and we saw in the position of Real Madrid, disrespect, incorrect, illegal and unacceptable to make an offer that they know is not enough, and that we always wanted it, you have Kilian.”
The 22-year-old’s contract with the Paris club expires in the summer of 2022, and the player wants to move to Real Madrid, despite his club’s contract with a number of stars, most notably Argentine Lionel Messi and Spaniard Sergio Ramos.
