The head of Parc des Princes says the striker has a “deep connection” with the French club and will not leave for free next summer.
Leonardo is not worried about Killian Mbabane’s future because amid ongoing rumors of him joining Real Madrid, the Paris Saint-Germain sports director insisted that “I don’t see him leaving at the end of the season”.
Madrid tried to remove Mbappe from PSG in the summer transfer window by submitting three big bids. Which reportedly reached 2 220 million (£ 190m / £ 262m) on the day of the deadline..
The Lego 1 giants have rejected Blancos’ progress despite the striker entering the final year of his contract, and Leonardo hopes to remain a valuable asset in the Park des Princes beyond the 2021-22 campaign.
What has been said?
“I don’t see Mbabane leaving at the end of the season. No one is thinking about the future of Paris Saint-Germain,” said the PSG director. Canal Plus.. “Killian’s type represents the difference between superficial and deep. Killian’s relationship with Paris Saint-Germain is deep. That’s why we don’t think about anything else.
“Killian represents a lot of things. Not just because he’s French or one of the best players in the world. He has a way that we like and everyone likes.”
Leonardo again criticized Madrid.
Leonardo accused Real last month of “illegal” conduct in pursuit of Mbabane.Saying that the Spanish club made unsatisfactory bids to pave the way for a free transfer in the new year.
The Brazilian has doubled down on his comments, claiming that PSG have never received Madrid’s last world record offer.
“We were not happy with Real Madrid’s behavior,” Leonardo added. “In the last week of the transfer market, starting negotiations for one of the best players in the world has created a situation that we did not like.
“We were clear about our position with this offer. It was not enough, it was smaller than our payment. The last offer they talked about never came. You are two, three or four months old. You can’t arrange and change the transfer market. That’s your plan. “
Embape, Neymar and Messi.
Leonardo insisted that Embape would be anxious to form a deadly attacker with Neymar and summer signing Lionel Messi, which could take the PSG to greater heights in the years to come.
The head of the Parc des Princes sees no reason for the French to turn away from the project any time soon, saying: “Messi, Neymar and Mbabane are not something to be seen for just one year. I think they are each other. “I don’t see any jealousy between them.”
