Mbappe: Fiorentino Perez claims PSG star’s dream changed following Real Madrid snub

Mbappe: Fiorentino Perez claims PSG star's dream changed following Real Madrid snub

The Spanish giants had targeted the 23-year-old last summer but saw their £170million rebuffed by the Qatari-owned side.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has now spoken out following Mbappe’s eventual decision.

Speaking to Spanish television programme El Chiringuito, Perez said:

“His dream was to play at Real Madrid,”

“We wanted to do it last August and they didn’t let him leave, he kept saying he wanted to play at Madrid, and 15 days before changed the situation.”

“Macron called Mbappe, it makes no sense. PSG offered him to be the leader of the project, it changed everything.

“It was not easy for Mbappe to receive calls from the president of France…to tell you not to leave the club” the Los Blancos president said.

Perez then goes further to claim that the PSG star’s dream had changed because of the crazy offers that were offered to him in Qatar, with the Parisans desperate attempt to keep hold of their French superstar.

“Then (you) go to Qatar (PSG are bankrolled by Qatari Sports Investment, a subsidiary of the country’s sovereign wealth fund) and they offer things that drive you crazy, probably things out of proportion. This is why Kylian has changed.” Perez said.

The Real Madrid president also claimed that the PSG star’s change of immediate dream has made him see the player in a different light prior to before when he believed Mbappe was hellbent on becoming the next Galacticos.

“I didn’t see the same Kylian Mbappe that we wanted. He changes, he is offered other things, he is pressured and he is already another footballer.

“This is not the Mbappe I wanted to bring, he is another one, who must have changed his dream.’ Perez said.

Kylian Mbappe’s arrival at Real Madrid would have seen him follow in the footsteps of world superstars that have been recruited by Perez including Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Eden Hazard, Kaka, Ronaldo Delima, David Beckham, Zinedine Zidane, and a host of others.

Perez who is one of the most influential club presidents in European symbol also went ahead to declare an already-known fact about Real Madrid and its iconic gargantuan status, while aiming a sly dig at Mbappe.

“Here, no one is bigger than Real Madrid. It won’t change.” he said.
