Football – Mercato – PSG
At the end of his contract on June 30 with PSG, Kylian Mbappé would refuse to extend to be able to join Real Madrid. While the capital club managed to retain its number 7 despite the Spanish assaults this summer, Qatar would have given strict instructions to Leonardo and Nasser Al-Khelaïfi. Indeed, the upper echelons of PSG would have made it clear that they wanted to see Kylian Mbappé stay until the World Cup 2022 at least. Thus, Real Madrid would fear a last minute about-face from the Frenchman.
As Neymar Junior, Kylian Mbappé arrived at PSG in the summer of 2017. While he signed a five-season contract, the French world champion will be free from any contract on July 1 if he does not extend. And knowing that he would like to sign on Real Madrid, Kylian Mbappé would refuse to extend his lease with the PSG. Information that would not have escaped the club merengue. Indeed, Florentino Perez would have tried to afford the services of Kylian Mbappé during the last summer transfer window.

Despite everything, the PSG resisted until the end and Kylian Mbappé finally stayed Paris this summer. Besides, Leonardo made it clear that he did not appreciate the attitude of the Madrid club, criticizing him for having waited until the last minute to negotiate a transfer of this magnitude.

And this position of Qatar would doubt the Real Madrid.
