Video: Real Madrid President Florentino Perez Discusses Failed Pursuit of Kylian Mbappe

It’s a few weeks now since Kylian Mbappe decided to remain at Paris Saint-Germain and sign a contract extension. Furthermore, the 23-year-old brought change to the capital club as Luis Campos has come aboard as their sporting advisor.

Nonetheless, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez appeared on the Spanish program El Chiringuito, providing some behind-the-scenes details regarding their pursuit of Mbappe. Perez added that the Mbappe, that decided to extend with PSG, isn’t the player he wants with Los Blancos

“This Mbappe, is not my Mbappe. Now life is changed, he doesn’t know how to give a thousand laps. But I this Mbappe, that’s how I say, that he refuses to do an act, let’s say sponsorship advertising with his team. I don’t want that. Well, that could be a lapse, or it could be one thing, but I think they have really confused him, they have confused him, and he is very young,” Perez said.

“I have nothing against him, but I believed the dream, and so did he, and that was true. But in the end, sometimes dreams cannot be realized due to external causes, right? But come on, his dream was to come to Real Madrid since he was little, without a doubt.”
