Mercato Mercato – PSG – Pérez badly digests the Mbappé failure: “If a kid is summoned by the President of the Republic …”

On the set of Chiringuito, the famous Spanish show of talking devoted to football, on the night of Wednesday to Thursday, Florentino Pérez revealed all the bitterness left in his mouth by the failure of the transfer of Kylian Mbappé to Madrid. If the Parisian star extended to PSG, it would be above all because “They (PSG) had practically offered him to be the leader, not only of a football team, but also of the management. There, we saw that it was not the Mbappé we wanted to bring in, that under pressure he had changed his dreams“.


Pérez: “This Mbappé is not my Mbappé”


And the Madrid president was far from having finished emptying his bag: “If a kid is summoned by the President of the Republic, of course it affects him. (…) I think the pressure that has affected him the most is politics. That, plus money and athletic leadership, changed his mind. (…) I can’t imagine the King of Spain calling a player.”

“With Tchouaméni, Real is winning its youth bet”

And under these conditions, Perez assured that attracting the Frenchman to the White House no longer interested him: “This Mbappé is not my Mbappé. (…) Madridistas will be disappointed, but the Mbappé who wanted to come to Real Madrid was not that Mbappé. (…) He announced it to me in a message and I wished him good luck. But at that point, we were no longer interested.“However, the doors would always be open to him if ever the striker of the Blues”understands what Real Madrid is and that no one is bigger than the others“.

Zidane, Ramos, the state clubs … Pérez has not let go of PSG

Although he nevertheless assured that PSG is not an enemy, one could doubt it given the content of the remarks, Florentino Perez commented at length on football news concerning directly or indirectly the club of the capital. Without forgetting to slide a nice sliding tackle beforehand: “State clubs are a problem we need to solve“. Not an enemy, you say?

“Attracting Zidane would already be weakening the authority of Campos”

At the heart of this ocean of bitterness, what could be worse for President Pérez than to see Zinédine Zidane, symbol of his mandate since he brought him as a player and then a coach, to settle on the bench Parisian. A scenario in which he does not really believe: “I do not know (if he will sign at PSG, editor’s note), but he has always been a man of Real Madrid and the France teampointed out Perez. That’s what I know of him.

Finally, the last thorn in the heart of the Madrid leader, the departure of Sergio Ramos a year ago to sign in … Paris. “Over time, everyone accepted. He did what he thought he had to do at the time“regretted Perez. He will be able to console himself with the transfer of Aurélien Tchouaméni, stolen at a price of gold from the nose and beard of the city of light.
