Paris Saint-Germain sports director Leonardo has spoken to the press about Florentino Perez’s quotes to the Spanish newspaper El Debate, where the president said there will be news about Mbappe in January and Madrid hoped that “everything settled” by then. would be.
Perez then corrected his own quotes, saying his words had been “misinterpreted”.
“My words were misinterpreted, I just said we have to wait until next year to find out what happens, always with the respect we have for PSG.”
Even after that clarification from Perez, Leonardo went to the press and shared his feelings.
“These new quotes are disrespectful to PSG and Mbappe. Basically a Real Madrid player [Karim Benzema], the coach and now the president are already talking about Mbappe as if he were one of them, in the space of just a week. Florentino had already spoken to the fans about Mbappe this week and I repeat, this is so disrespectful that we cannot allow it,” he said.
Leonardo concluded his brief interview by saying that PSG still want Mbappe to extend his current contract, which expires next summer.
“This has been going on for two years. I just want everyone to remember that the transfer window is over and the season is on. We have games and Real Madrid must stop behaving like that. Make this stop! Mbappe is a PSG player and the club wants him to stay,” he concluded.
