Kylian Mbappe now stays with Paris St. Germain, the world champion gives Real Madrid a basket. In Spain, violent criticism becomes loud.
In the end, Kylian Mbappe crept out of the square without emotion. Not even a few hundred million euros, fireworks in his honor and three goals seemed to affect the emotional world of the world champion. The Frenchman, on the other hand, put the Frenchman into turmoil due to his whereabouts at Paris St. Germain. It is about dizzying sums, political pressure, legal replicas - and a WhatsApp.
After all, Mbappe is said to have informed the President of Real Madrid by mobile phone message that he will not switch to the Spanish record champions. The cancellation of Florentino Perez and the signature of the French title holder until 2025 shakes European club football - Spain in particular is shocked.
"Mbappe reveals the white club," wrote the newspaper Marca. The competition from AS is of the opinion that the superstar "prefers the money of PSG of legend Reals". It looks similar SPORT, which sees "mountains full of money" in front of Mbappe. El Mundo Deportivo meanwhile has a bit of malice for the royal: "Real looks stupid out of the laundry."
In fact, Madrid is there as a loser. Because the change to the Spanish capital was considered safe. Last summer, the 23-year-old, who came to Paris from AS Monaco in 2017 and cost PSG 180 million euros, asked for approval. Since Paris rejected, the transfer -free change now seemed to be a matter of form. But it turned out differently.
The background of the burst transfer, which is illuminated by various media, read like an economic thriller. Accordingly, PSG and Real originally offered the courted striker star for the signature, 40 million annual salary and the majority rights in his pictures.
In the end, however, the French-financed Frenchman around their club boss Nasser Al-Khelaifi would have packed it tremendously with money and promised to make a say in sporting and business decisions. In order to be able to celebrate the attacker at the World Cup finals in the Emirate (November 21 to December 18) as a PSG star, Katar is said to have even put pressure on French President Emanuel Macron.
Javier Tebas: "A shame for football"
All of this called the Spaniards on the scene. League President Javier Tebas called the whole "a shame for football". The fact that PSG with Mbappe "thanks to enormous sums" extends after the club last made "losses of 700 million euros" and already had a "salary volume of 600 million euros" is "an insult to football", Tebas wrote on Twitter.
The Spanish league announced that the UEFA, the EU and the French authorities complain. As a reason, it was said that this type of agreement would attack the economic stability of European football and endanger the integrity of sport.
Above all, Al-Khelaifi, President of the European Club Association ECA and a member of the UEFA Executive Committee, was violently attacked by the Spanish league: "This behavior, operated by Nasser Al-Khelaifi, is a danger to European football to a similar extent to the great League. "
