Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has accused Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe of submitting to “political and economic pressure” to renew his contract with the French club. “(Mbappe) has always considered that his dream is to play for Real Madrid, and about 15 days ago (from his villages), the situation completely reversed due to political and economic pressures,” Perez said in an interview with the “El Chiringuito” program on the Spanish channel “Mega”. .
He added, “This matter, in addition to the financial factor and the sporting leadership, led to a change of his mind. When we find ourselves in a similar perplexing situation, we try to get out of it by all means. I understand him because it is not easy to receive a call from the President of the Republic (Emmanuel Macron).”
“Here in Spain, it is difficult to understand that the King of Spain calls a club, it is very difficult to understand.”
