La Liga President Javier Tebas has torn PSG President Nasser Al-Khelaifi to shreds as Real Madrid look set to miss out on superstar Kylian Mbappe. The French youngster was presumed to be on his way to the Bernabeu this summer in a high-profile free transfer, but reports now indicate that a lucrative new contract has swayed him to stay put.
Madrid attempted to lure Mbappe to Spain with one year left on his contract last summer, but PSG raised eyebrows by slapping down a bid believed to be in the region on £170million. Many expected them to lose one of their star performers for free this time around, but a late twist looks set to leave Los Blancos red-faced.
Fabrizio Romano claims that a three-year contract has been agreed between player and club, and an announcement is on the way. It will be the second hammerblow in a matter of weeks for Carlo Ancelotti’s side, after they missed out on Erling Haaland who instead opted for Manchester City.
In a furious social media rant, Tebas said: “What PSG is going to do by renewing Mbappé with large amounts of money (to know where and how he pays them) after € in recent seasons and having more than 600M € in salary, is a INSULT to football. [Nasser] Al-Khelafi is as dangerous as the Super League.”
