Mbappe angers media by posing with PSG's former Real Madrid stars

Kylian Mbappe angers Spanish media by ‘digging into the wound’ and posing with PSG’s former Real Madrid stars after snubbing Spain move and agreeing £650k-a-week deal to stay in Paris

  • Kylian Mbappe has agreed a new three-year contract at Paris Saint-Germain 
  • France striker snubbed Real Madrid to continue on at the Parc des Princes
  • Mbappe will receive a £34m-a-year pay packet and £126m signing-on bonus
  • LaLiga are unhappy with PSG’s conduct in convincing Mbappe to stay at the club
  • They plan to complain to UEFA about PSG’s handling of the transfer saga

Kylian Mbappe has further angered the Spanish media by posing for a picture with PSG’s former Real Madrid stars after the LaLiga revealed its intention of reporting the French giants to UEFA.

The France international, 23, rejected Real Madrid to sign a new three-year contract at the Parc des Princes worth £650,000-a-week, drawing a line under a long-running transfer saga before the summer window has even opened. 

The news has clearly not gone down well in Spain, with LaLiga claiming that they will file a complaint as they believe the terms of Mbappe’s new contract at PSG are ‘scandalous’ and that the deal ‘threatens the economic sustainability of European football.’

Mbappe has added salt to the wounds of the Spanish media who believed he would sign for Los Blancos on a free transfer this summer by being photographed alongside Sergio Ramos, Keylor Navas, and Achraf Hakimi.

Spanish media outlet Diario AS tweeted the picture out saying: ‘Mbappe digs into the wound.’

The press in Spain have also previously shown that they share the league’s anger as they hit out at the ‘traitor’ after his decision to snub Real Madrid.

Marca led the fury as it appeared to take aim at Mbappe’s character and class following the forward’s U-turn decision.

The publication led with the headline: ‘It takes a lot of class to play in Madrid.’

After suggesting Mbappe does not possess the class to play for Los Blancos – despite his clear talent – Marca continued to say that he had ‘betrayed’ the club by renewing his contract at the Parc des Princes.

Spanish publication AS claimed that Mbappe ‘was missing out’ by not making the move to Real

Meanwhile, AS couldn’t resist a sly dig at the World Cup winner as their front page read: ‘He’s missing out.’

The Spanish publication continued to suggest that it was his loss as it wrote: ‘Mbappe prefers PSG’s money to Madrid’s legend.’

This was all written prior to Mbappe’s latest post, which has angered the Spanish media further, as they were expecting the French star to head to the Bernabeu this summer. 

FULL LALIGA STATEMENT 

‘Faced with Kylian Mbappé’s possible announcement of remaining at Paris Saint-Germain, LaLiga wants to state that this type of agreement threatens the economic sustainability of European football, putting hundreds of thousands of jobs and sporting integrity at risk in the medium term, not only from European competitions, but also from our domestic leagues.

‘It is scandalous that a club like PSG, which last season lost more than 220 million euros, after having accumulated losses of 700 million euros in recent seasons (even declaring income from sponsorships of a very dubious amount) with a cost of sports staff around 650 million for this 21/22 season, can face an agreement of these characteristics while those clubs that could accept the arrival of the player without seeing their wage bill compromised, are left without being able to sign him.

‘For all of the above, LaLiga is going to file a complaint against PSG before UEFA, administrative and tax authorities in France and before the competent bodies of the European Union to continue defending the economic ecosystem of European football and its sustainability. .

‘On previous occasions, LaLiga has already made complaints against PSG for non-compliance with UEFA’s financial fair play as a result of which UEFA harshly sanctioned PSG, although the CAS revoked them in a strange resolution.

‘LaLiga and many European football institutions were hopeful that with the entry of the PSG president, Mr. Nasser Al-Khelaifi, into European football management bodies such as the former UEFA or the ECA Presidency, he would refrain from carrying out these practices knowing the serious damage they cause, but it has not been like that, quite the opposite. Being PSG with unacceptable salary masses, with large economic losses in previous seasons, it assumes an impossible investment in this situation, which undoubtedly implies non-compliance with the current economic control regulations not only of UEFA, but of French football itself. .

‘These behaviors denote even more that the state clubs do not respect or want to respect the rules of an economic sector as important as football, key to the sustainability of hundreds of thousands of jobs.

‘This type of behavior led by Nasser Al-Khelaifi, president of PSG, due to his status as a member of the former UEFA, president of the ECA, is a danger to European football at the same level as the Super League.’

 

Los Blancos had made their interest in Mbappe clear last summer when they submitted a final bid of £154million for the Ligue 1 top scorer, in an attempt to pry him away from Paris.

Though the club rejected the proposal, it was widely anticipated that the French star would join Carlo Ancelotti’s side a year later after he refused to renew his deal at PSG.

However, Mbappe made a shock turnaround in his contract saga and announced his decision to sign a new three-year deal at the club.

The World Cup winner has only been at PSG since 2017 but he already boasts an impressive goal tally of 168 – just 32 goals behind Edinson Cavani in the all-time top scorers list for the French giants.

During his time in Paris he’s won four Ligue 1 titles and three Coupe de France trophies, as well as being crowned the UNFP Ligue 1 Player of the Year for the 2021/22 campaign.

‘I would like to announce that I have chosen to extend my contract at Paris Saint-Germain, and of course I am delighted,’ Mbappe said.

‘I am convinced that here I can continue to grow at a club that provides everything necessary to perform at the highest level.

‘I am also delighted to continue to play in France, the country where I was born, where I have grown up and where I have made my name.

‘I would like to thank the President, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, for his trust, his understanding and his patience.

‘I would also like to thank all the fans of Paris Saint-Germain, both in France and around the world, for their support, especially in recent months. Together, side by side and ambitious, we will make magic in Paris.’
