PSG President Reveals That Real Madrid’s Offer To Mbappe Was Better It’s been weeks since Kylian Mbappe decided to decided to sign a new contract with PSG, a three years deal and snubbing the advances of Spanish La Liga side, Real Madrid in the process.

More Details

After the details of the contract were revealed, speculations were rife that Mbappe was financially induced to snub the offer from Spain while other influences were also brought to bear as the player revealed that he received a call from the president of France to implore him to stay with PSG.


PSG president, Nasser Al-Khelaifi has now come out to clear the air on the issue plus other issues related to the club. I have great respect for Real Madrid as a club, they’re a great club, but Kylian has never decided to renew for the money, that’s the first thing. Madrid’s offer was better than ours.” He said.

“He is our player and he had other clubs in England as well as Madrid, but he chose PSG and we didn’t talk to him or his family about money until the last moment. Kylian was above all interested in the project, in football and sport.”

“He is Parisian, he is French, and he wanted to stay here to represent his city and his country, his club, and it is not fair what has been said about him. For them, money is not the most important thing, they want to win and they want a sporting project.”

On the statement from Florentino Perez that the player changed his mind on signing for the Los Blancos ten days to him signing a contract with PSG, he had this to say;

“I don’t know what Madrid says, whether it was days or months ago. I know 18 months ago that Mbappe wanted to stay. I heard that Madrid said he wanted to play for Madrid, but it wasn’t true.”

“We are talking now about Madrid’s latest offer, but in the summer they made an offer of 170 and 180 million [euros]. That means that Madrid’s offer, plus his salary, was already better than ours, as it is now.”

“I turned down 180 [million euros] and they told me I was crazy, people I trusted, because he could leave for free, but I did it because I was sure Kylian was going to stay because I know him and his family well, I know what he wants.”

“Kylian is very serious, professional, and he wants to play and win, he doesn’t care about money. I understand that Madrid are disappointed, but it’s not fair to say that about Mbappe.”

He also had a few words with regards to LaLiga president, Javier Tebas and his petition to UEFA against PSG.

“Who is Tebas? I don’t know that person. Our style is not to interfere in the affairs of other clubs, other leagues or federations, it is not our style. But I am not going to accept that others give us lessons.”

“I don’t care what he says, the truth is, we have been talking about this for years. We have a football project to build and we are going to go ahead. We’re not worried about everything that comes out in the media, because we can’t waste our time with everything that comes out.”


Former Real Madrid coach, Zinedine Zidane has been linked with the job of coaching PSG, while several reports have surfaced that former Lille coach, Christophe Galtier will succeed Mauricio Pocchetino as the coach of the club but Al-Khelaifi was quick to dispel these rumors;

“About Zidane I want to say something important, he is a person I liked a lot as a player and I like him as a coach, I love him. But we have never spoken to him, directly or indirectly, and I respect him a lot and I appreciate him a lot.”

“A lot of things have come out in the press but we have never spoken to him.” He also declined to comment on the future of Pocchetino.
