Speaking to Cadena COPE, La Liga president Javier Tebas revealed that Real Madrid are capable of signing both Kylian Mbappé and Erling Haaland.
“They [Real Madrid] have sold €200 million worth of players. They have enough money to sign both [Kylian] Mbappé and [Erling] Haaland together. They have not lost money. On top of that, they have sold assets. What is not understandable is that someone who loses €400 million, is spending €500 million on wages and can still reject offers like the one for Mbappé. The rules in France are failing, they are hurting the European market. The UEFA system is wrong. We are going backward from the way it should be. Investors must be brought in, but not with unlimited contributions and constant losses. This would not be allowed in another sector. They prefer to win the Champions League and lose a billion euros. That way they keep their fans happy because they have won the Champions League, but you have ruined football. It’s very dangerous,” Tebas said.
Madrid failed to land Mbappé in the summer but are expected to finally sign the PSG forward next summer. Haaland has also been continuously linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabéu from Borussia Dortmund.
