Mbappé was under political and economic pressure

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has accused Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe of submitting to “political and economic pressure” to extend his contract with the French club. “(Mbappe) has always thought that his dream is to play for Real Madrid, and about 15 days ago (from his villages) the situation has completely reversed due to political and economic pressure,” Perez said in an interview with the “El Chiringuito” program on the Spanish channel “Mega”. †

He added: “This issue, in addition to the financial factor and the sporting leadership, led to a change of mind. When we find ourselves in a similarly confusing situation, we try to work it out by any means possible. I understand him because it is not easy to get a call from the President of the Republic (Emmanuel Macron).”

“Here in Spain it is difficult to understand that the King of Spain calls a club, it is very difficult to understand.”
