Rejecting Real Madrid’s offer, PSG says Mbappé ‘will either leave or stay on our terms’

Paris Saint-Germain rejected Real Madrid’s offer to eliminate Kylian Mbappé on Wednesday, and sporting director Leonardo said the offer of around 160 million euros was “not enough” for a player they wanted to “keep”.

“Our position has always been to keep Kylian, renew his contract,” which expires next June, the Brazilian told some media, including AFP.

He went on to describe the Spanish club’s approach to the French World Cup winner as “disrespectful, incorrect and illegal.”

Leonardo said that the Parisian club would not retain Mbappé against his will, but that the player “would either leave or remain in our conditions.”

“If a player wants to leave, he will leave. The club, the project, is above all,” said the sports director. And he added: “We have done everything” to convince him to stay.

PSG paid Monaco 180 million euros for the striker in 2017 and is eager for him to sign a new contract.

After Lionel Messi’s arrival in Paris earlier this month, club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi said Mbappé “has no reason to do anything” other than stay.

Mbappé has scored once and provided two assists in three appearances so far this season and Messi is expected to make his debut for PSG in Reims on Sunday.
