first_imgAfter the time, Mbappé is certain that his place is at the Bernabéu. It frustrates him falling in the first rounds of the Champions League season after season. It was also a cold jug for him to have no chance of winning the Ballon d’Or even after leading France’s world champion. Not only does he need the Madrid showcase, it is notorious that he had his room in the residence of Monaco lined with posters of the white team and Cristiano.It is not new.Since 2017, Mbappé has had two attempts to provoke his departure to Madrid. The first time Emery himself reported with a statement in El Larguero: “Mbappé wanted to go to Madrid”, revealed of the time when he was training PSG. “I spoke to his father so that he decided to stay at PSG. He was with his eyes closed, he wanted to go to Madrid but we all managed to convince him.” Already last summer, Mbappé was revealed again with his situation. “I think it is time to take more responsibility. Perhaps in Paris I will be happy, but perhaps also with a new project elsewhere,” he said at the club’s end-of-season gala. “If I talk about this again it’s too much. It was the message I wanted to send,” he concluded. On this occasion, PSG was forced to even release a statement to say it was staying. “I think Mbappé’s family is not very happy with the information that is leaking from within PSG that refers to the fact that they are willing to leave him without playing a season if he does not renew his contract,” This newspaper tells a senior official from one of the world’s leading representation agencies that is in direct contact with the striker, even without a representative. “So, they are only going to be able to hasten their departure.” PSG sees the jewel in the crown slipping from his fingers, the player with the most market value in the world (above Messi, by age and projection) without being able to do anything to retain him. AS has already advanced the intention of the French team to tighten the rope: “PSG is getting tough, Leonardo prefers that he go free in 2022 than not renew.” And the threat, spread in more settings, it has reached Mbappé’s ears and it has not sat well.Mbappé’s relationship with PSG today hangs by a thread. The great illusion of the player has been and continues to be wearing the Madrid shirt. In 2017 he was about to do it. A leak from the Football Leaks papers revealed this. Madrid had him tied for 214 million. The contracts came to light. He paid more than the 180 euros that PSG ended up paying because Madrid took over a tax from which they are exempt in France. Finally, the white entity did not make the signing effective for two reasons: on the one hand, it already had its trident formed by Cristiano, Bale (younger and with more vigor) and Benzema. On the other, Mbappé wanted to collect 12 million euros and that broke Madrid’s salary scale. Madrid is waiting, faithful to its strategy of trying to sign him in the summer of 2021, when he only has one year left on his contract. For that it is important that Mbappé does not renew. Today, Al Khelaifi has given the order that getting him to sign the extension is a top priority. But Mbappé did not want to sit down to negotiate. At PSG, they tell us, the option of trying to renew it has even been considered, including a release clause for a high amount of money, as Barça did with Neymar (222 million), but the instability of the market would make it impossible for the player to compromise with that option. Operation Mbappé is red hot.last_img
