The president of PSG reveals in an interview with Marca that he rejected "180 million in the summer because he was sure that Kylian was going to stay, because I know him well."

Nasser al Khelaifi assures in an interview with the newspaper Marca that Kylian Mbappé has not decided to continue at PSG for money, because he explained that "Madrid's offer was better" and denied that the Frenchman has power in the club's sporting decisions.

"I have great respect for Real Madrid as a club, but Kylian has never decided to renew for money. Madrid's offer was better than ours. In addition, he had other clubs in England, but he has chosen PSG and we have not spoken with him. he or his family of money until the last moment. He was interested in the soccer project. He is Parisian and wanted to stay to represent his city and his country. It is not fair what has been said about him. For them, money does not It is the most important thing, they want to win and they want a sports project", he assures in the Madrid newspaper.

"Mbappé wanted to stay and he said it whenever they asked me. I heard that in Madrid they said that he wanted to play in Madrid, but it was not true. We are now talking about Madrid's last offer, but in the summer they made one of 170 and 180 million. Which means that together with his salary, it was already better than ours, like the one now," he explained.

"I turned down 180 and they told me I was crazy, people I trust, because you could go for free, but I did it because I was sure that Kylian was going to stay because I know him and his family well, I know what he wants . Kylian he's very serious, professional and wants to win, he doesn't care about the money. I understand that Madrid is disappointed, but it's not fair to say that about Mbappé", he added without understanding the criticism of the player for the economic aspect.

He showed his surprise with the intention of Florentino Pérez to set up the Super League but celebrate "almost a week" the conquest of the Champions League. "It's weird. They've won the Champions League and deservedly so, but on the one hand they want to win it, they've celebrated it for days, almost a week, and on the other hand they don't like to play it . If you're not happy, you don't have to play it. It is the best competition in the world for everyone and I don't even know why the Spanish fans are also against this competition, but for me the Super League is dead."


Regarding the complaint by LaLiga and its president Javier Tebas to PSG for "continuously failing to comply with the current financial fair play regulations", Al Khelaifi responded with irony. "Who is Thebes? I don't know that person," he said. "Our style is not to get involved in the affairs of other clubs, other Leagues or Federations, it is not our style. But I will not accept that others give us lessons. I do not care what he says, the truth is, this has been talked about for years already. We have a football project to build and we are going to move forward", he argued.

"My Intention Is To Play"

"Every summer it's the same. That if we fair play, that if we don't respect the rest... We know better than him what we can do and no one from outside has to tell us what we have to do. If we do it, it's because We can. Look at the case of Messi. The same thing happened, they already said that it was financially impossible and we have made money with Messi. He has no idea and he should focus on his championship because his championship is a bit dead, "he added, attacking LaLiga.

He also wanted to clarify that Mbappé has not been involved in the dismissal of Leonardo as sports director and the arrival of Luis Campos , nor does he think of the coach or the squad. "He has left his opinion on the project because he wants to win, but he doesn't get into it later. What he wants, just, is to play. He never gets into the planning."

Al Khelaifi denied that they had negotiated with Zinedine Zidane . "Zidane is a person that I liked a lot as a player and I like him as a coach, I love him, but we have never spoken with him, directly or indirectly. I respect and appreciate him a lot. Many things have come out, but we have never spoken with him", he stated in Marca.

In this sense, he advanced in the newspaper Le Parisien that his candidate to relieve Pochettino is the current coach of Nice, Christophe Galtier . "We are talking to them, it is not a secret, and I hope we find an agreement quickly. But I respect Nice and President Jean-Pierre Rivere, they all defend their interests," he warned.
