Kylian Mbappe, the Paris Saint-Germain winger for the first time has spoken about the transfer scandal that happened between the Ligue 1 club and Real Madrid during the summer transfer window.
Kylian Mbappe was speaking with RMC sports a sport online news agency in France recently and he confirmed that he asked to leave the club last summer so that PSG will make money from his deal.
He also appreciated all that the club has given him since he arrived from Monaco in 2017 and said he has always been happy with the club.
“I asked to leave, because, from the moment where I did not want to extend, I wanted for the club to receive a transfer fee so that they could bring in a quality replacement. This club has given me a lot. I have always been happy the 4 years I have had here, and I still am. I said it early enough so that the club could react. I wanted enough so that the club could react. I wanted everyone to come out of this stronger, that we leave hand in hand, to make a good deal and I respected that. I said, if you don’t want me to go, I will stay.”
Real Madrid submitted a bit of €170 million for Mbappe during the summer transfer window, but PSG was adamant that the player will only be allowed to leave for €200 million. There have been rumours from Spain that Madrid will submit another bid for the player in January.
