Leonardo thinks that Mbappe will extend contract with PSG
PSG’s sporting director, Leonardo met with the journalists. He said that Real Madrid was very disrespectful to Kylian Mbappe. The sporting director wants Mbappe to extend current contract with PSG.
Disrespect from Real Madrid
Leonardo has been very critical of the way in which Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has openly spoken about the possibility of signing Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe. The PSG sporting director pointed to a lack of respect from Real Madrid after several comments have emerged relating to Los Blancos’ desire to sign the 22-year-old. This is another example of the lack of respect for PSG and for Mbappe, Leonardo said in an interview with French journalists. In fact, in the same week a Real Madrid player, then the Real Madrid coach and now the president talked about Kylian as if he was already one of their own. I repeat: this is a lack of respect that we cannot tolerate.
Extending contract with PSG
This comes after Florentino Perez had intimated that there will soon be an agreement in place for Real Madrid to sign Mbappe. In January we will have news about Mbappe. We hope that on January 1 everything can be sorted out,” the Real Madrid president told Spanish journalists. However, he later clarified his comments when speaking with RMC Sport. My words were misinterpreted. What I said is that we have to wait until next year to find out, always with respect for PSG, with whom we have a good relationship,” Florentino Perez stated. Real Madrid is ready to take Kylian Mbappe for free next summer. Kylian Mbappe will be ready to negotiate with other teams from January 2022. It will be interesting how things go before January. In January, Kylian has all legal rights to talk with other clubs and start getting more offers. Los Blancos was very close to signing Kylian last summer but PSG did not accept the offer.
