The renewal of Kylian Mbappé by Paris Saint-Germain follows giving that speak. Florentino Pérez already confirmed in 'The Chiringuito of Jugones' that the dream of the player was to dress the T-shirt of the Madrid, but that "15 days before changed the situation". Now, the president of the Parisian entity, Nasser To the Khelaïfi, has conceded an interview to the newspaper 'Mark', in where it has pronounced on diverse subjects of actuality in the PSG, included the controversial extension of the agreement of the 'crack' of Bondy with the 'red and blue'.

In this regard of the continuity of Kylian, the executive qatarí confessed that this did not remain by the money, ensuring that the offer of the whites was upper. "Have a big respect by the Real Madrid like club, is a big club, but Kylian never has decided to renew by the money, this the first. The offer of the Madrid was better that ours. It is our player and had other clubs of England in addition to the Madrid, but he has chosen the PSG and have not spoken with him neither with his family of money until the last moment", expressed.

In this sense, To the Khelaífi sustained that the decision of the '7' Parisian is merely based in the sportive project and in the wish to triumph in his city and his natal country. "Kylian Was especially interested in the project, of the football and of the sport. It is Parisian, is French, and wanted to remain here to represent to his city and to his country, his club, and is not just what has said of him. For them the money is not the most important, want to win and want a sportive project", aseveró.

Of equal way, commissioned to contradict the said by Florentino Pérez, affirming that "I do not know what says the Madrid, if it does days or months. I know 18 months ago that Mbappé wanted to remain and said it whenever they asked me. It listened that in the Madrid said that it wanted to play in the Madrid, but was not truth. We speak now of the last offer of the Madrid, but in summer have done an offer of 170 and 180 millions. What wants to say that the offer of the Madrid more his wage, already was better that ours, as the one of now".

Likewise, it ratified his security regarding the renewal of Kylian, and ensured that "I refused 180 and said me that it was crazy, people of my confidence, because it could go free, but did it because it was sure that Kylian went to remain because I know him well to him and to his family, know what wants. Kylian Is very serious, professional, and what wants to win and play, gives him the same the money. I understand that the Madrid was disappointed, but is not just to say this of Mbappé".

The Superliga, Thebes and the 'fair play' financial

Nasser Also spoke of the Superliga, and took advantage of to send him a 'dart' to the Madrid. "For me it is died already. But it is rare also. The Madrid has won the Champions and of form deserved besides, but on the one hand want to it win, have celebrated it days, almost a week, and on the other hand does not like them play it. If you are not happy does not do lacking to play it. It is the best competition of the world for all and even do not know because the Spanish fans are also against of this competition, but for me the Superliga is died" declared.

On the other hand, To the Khelaïfi 'ninguneó' to Thebes and was conclusive when manifesting that in Paris are not concerned by the complaints of the leader. "Who is Thebes? I do not know to this person. Our style is to not to put us in the subjects of other clubs, of other Leagues or Federations, is not our style. But I do not go to accept that others give us lessons. It gives me the same what say, the truth, speaks of this does years already. Have a project of football for building and go to be followed forward. It does not concern us, neither all what goes out in the means, because we can not lose the time with all what goes out".

Finally, it pronounced on the controversy with the 'fair play' financial and removed him 'iron' to the subject, in addition to 'atizar' to LaLiga and his president. "All the years, all the summers, is the same. That if the Fair Play, that if we do not respect to the rest... We know what can do, what can sign, know better that he what can do and anybody has to say us what have to do. It does not have to us say somebody of out what can do or no. If we do it, it is because we can. It look the case of Messi. It happened the same, already they said that it was impossible financially and have made money with Messi. It does not have neither idea and would have to centre in his championship because his championship is a bit died".
