Speaking to RMC Sport, Leonardo, PSG’s sporting director, confirmed that they have rejected a first offer from Real Madrid for Kylian Mbappé, but that if a satisfactory one arrives, they will analyse it.
On Real Madrid
“For the last two years, Real Madrid have been behaving like this, it is not correct, illegal even because they contacted the player. It is unacceptable for us because it is not correct. It is proof of the strategy: an offer comes one year before the end of his contract and seven days before the end of the window. They want us to reject to show to Kylian that they tried everything and to start negotiating for next year.”
On if Mbappé wants to leave
“Kylian Mbappé wants to leave, it seems clear to me. If Real Madrid make an offer, it seems clear to me … I give a position, which I think is clear to everyone. We cannot, in the last week of the transfer window, change our plans. If he wants to leave, we won’t keep hold of him, but it will be on our terms.”
