Mbappé confirms calls with Macron
Mbappé confirms at the microphone of BFMTV that Emmanuel Macron and him have spoken of a possible transfer to Real Madrid. “yes, we talked, it was good advice. We often talked. When you are a national figure, you have rights and duties. you have to assume everything you are, the player and the man .”
What was the tenor of their conversations: “I warned him of my choice. He told me that he was very happy and that it was very good news for the country.”
Did the phone call count?: “No because there wasn’t just one! I have a lot of respect for him, but I don’t make my decision because he told to stay. But it was one parameter among others.”
This is the end of this press conference
We haven’t learned much about the figures of the contract, but by the admission of Mbappé and Al-Khelaïfi, it was not the most important.
Mbappé clarified that he was not becoming a sporting director and why he chose to stay in France, his country.
On image rights, Mbappé’s fight
“Before this rally in March, no one did an article on image rights. It took that for it to become a subject. But we talked about a sports project for months and money for 5 minutes.”
“Football has changed. There’s a new wave that’s come and it’s just giving scrutiny to our name and what it’s associated with. I don’t want to revolutionize football, I already haven’t a lot to worry about managing my career. But we will solve this problem quickly with intelligence and respect.”
NAK: Kylian stayed 5 years with us and Kylian respects all contracts, partnerships…
NAK: “We never gave the figures, but it was not the most important, the most important was the sporting project. The money, the club in Spain could have paid more.”
A message for Real supporters?
“I want to thank them, they have always accepted me as one of their own. I understand their disappointment, but I hope they will understand that I am staying in my country and as a Frenchman I want to help my country and make grow the championship.”
NAK: “We weren’t sure, but we always believed in Kylian, in his family”
“We have built something very strong between us since day one. Maybe you don’t understand it now but you will understand it later that it’s positive for the club, the championship, France.”
On the attacks of Tebas
“Our Ligue 1 president is Vincent Labrune. He can answer you better. But it may be a good thing if Ligue 1 is doing better than La Liga. We have respect for everyone. We are focused on our club, our league, our best player in the world, that’s the most important thing for me.”
Mbappe captain? Not immediately.
“He deserves his armband. I don’t need to be a captain to be heard and set an example on the pitch. Marquinhos is a great player and a very good captain. He is very important for us.”
“How important are the roles of Neymar and Messi?”
“Whether it’s PSG or Real Madrid, these are clubs that don’t need convincing. For any player, it’s an honor to play in one of these two clubs. It’s sure that playing with great players that’s what I wanted. We had a difficult year, but we talked a little but not a lot because they told me that it was a personal choice and that they understood it and I thanks.”
“I made my decision last week”
“I made the decision to announce it before announcing it to PSG to call the president Florentino Perez.”
Why this turnaround in a year
“Leaving my country like that… There is this sentimental side… And also the project has changed. The club has changed a lot of things sportingly and I think my story is not over.”
Mbappé is not a sports director
Mbappé: “I remain a football player, I remain anchored in a collective, I remain a football player and I would not go beyond this function.
The full sporting powers of Kylian Mbappé?
“I’m going to be very honest with you: from day one we talk about football with his family. That’s what I like about him, we always talk about football. When we come here, we come here because it’s is Paris and he’s coming to win a lot of trophies.”
The last difficult weeks for Kylian?
“Of course it weighs, because it was a difficult decision, but I took refuge in my football, where I am good and what I can do.”
“Kylian has stayed at PSG for the next three seasons, it’s very important for us, Ligue 1 and France”
NAK’s first words. “Kylian has stayed at PSG for the next three seasons, it’s very important for us, Ligue 1 and France. This choice is a very strong sign, we are keeping the best player in the world.”
“He stays here because Paris puts him in condition to achieve his sporting goals: win, win and win.”

The jackpot that Monaco will receive thanks to Mbappé’s extension

The payment of this sum was indeed linked to a clause, having a good chance of being activated: that Mbappé be transferred to another club or that he extend his contract in Paris.

The moment was not good for football.” A soap opera whose last episode has decidedly had a hard time getting to Spain.

I have always said that Paris is my home. And I hope that I will continue to do what I love the most: playing football and winning trophies with all of you.”
He also posted several messages on his social networks, including one to Real Madrid on Sunday. “I also wanted to sincerely thank Real Madrid and its president Florentino Perez. I recognize the chance and the privilege that were mine to be the greed of such an institution. I suspect their disappointment. It is up to my hesitations. I will be their first supporter for the Champions League final in Paris, at home. I am very happy to be able to continue to evolve in France, the country where I was born, grew up and flourished. And which gives me the opportunity to pursue my dreams.”
