“L’offre du Real était meilleure que la nôtre”, jure Al-Khelaïfi

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaïfi has responded to Real Madrid boss Florentino Pérez, assuring that the Spanish club’s offer was higher than that of the Parisian club for Kylian Mbappé, who eventually extended to Paris.

Paris Saint-Germain is accelerating its transformation. Gone is the “bling-bling” era, make way for the work culture. The architect of this new project, Luis Campos, appointed PSG football adviser in early June, is responsible for building a coherent collective around Kylian Mbappé. The signing of the Parisian striker until 2025 really started this change of strategy this summer and aroused much criticism from the side of Madrid, where Real was happy to welcome him. And for good reason, Mbappé had intended to join the Spanish club last summer. But PSG had opposed his project, refusing the various offers submitted by Real Madrid.

“For the Mbappé family, money is not the most important thing”

Bitter, President Florentino Pérez recently accused PSG striker Kylian Mbappé of having yielded to “political and economic pressure”. “Money made him change his mind,” argued the Real Madrid boss.

In an interview with the newspaper Marca, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaïfi blasted the narrative of his Madrid counterpart, explaining that “Madrid’s offer was better”. “I refused 180 (million euros, offer from Real to PSG last summer, editor’s note) and they told me that I was crazy, people I trusted, because he could leave. for free, but i did it because i was sure that Kylian would stay because i know him well, him and his family, i know what he wants Kylian is very serious, professional and wants to win, he doesn’t care Don’t worry about the money. I understand that Madrid are disappointed, but it’s not fair to say that about Mbappe.”

“I have a lot of respect for Real Madrid as a club, but Kylian never decided to extend for money, he continued. Madrid’s offer was better than ours. D Besides, he had other clubs in England (note, notably Liverpool, which Mbappé had already spoken about), but he chose PSG and we didn’t talk about money with him or his family, only in the last days. He was interested in the football project. He is from Paris and wanted to stay to represent his city and his country. It is not fair what has been said about him. For them, money is not the thing the most important thing, they want to win and they want a sports project.”
