In his long interview for The Parisian, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi did not just mention the future coach (Christophe Galtier) or the undesirables. He also returned to the refusal to sell Kylian Mbappé, 23-year-old striker, last summer to Real Madrid. For the president of Paris Saint-Germain, he refused the offer because he “knew that Mbappé wanted to stay at PSG“.
🚨 Nasser Al-Khelaïfi at @marca : “I refused 180 M€ from Real because I knew that Mbappé🇫🇷 wanted to stay at PSG. I know what he and his family want, they are not motivated by money. He chose to play for his city, his club, his country and for the sporting project.”

It’s always easier to explain things when everything has gone the way he wanted. But in fact, he never gave up hope of seeing the Kid from Bondy extend to Paris Saint-Germain. The events proved him right, because today, the number 7 of the PSG extended three years.
The Parisian president therefore gives a layer against Real Madrid and has never assumed his authority as much as today. Let’s hope that everything will turn out for the best for PSG which will enter a new era with drastic changes, as announced by Al-Khelaïfi. We are now waiting to see if all the files, purchases and unwanted items will be able to find their outcome in the transfer window.
