Leonardo: Real Madrid lack respect in Mbappe’s pursuit

Tue 05 October 2021 | 18:34

The PSG director thinks Los Blancos should give their Kylian Mbappe pursuit a break, insisting that the Spanish giants lack respect.

After

Kylian Mbappe

talked about his desire to depart

Paris Saint-Germain

and join

Real Madrid

,

Florentino Perez

admitted that he expected the saga to end on January 1, 2022, when he aims to continue his pursuit of the France international.

Leonardo

was disappointed and urged Los Blancos to show some respect now that the window is closed.

"

This latest outing is just a continuation of the lack of respect shown towards PSG and towards Kylian,"

he told 

L'Equipe

.

"In the same week, we've had a Real Madrid player (Karim Benzema), then the Real Madrid coach (Carlo Ancelotti) and now the Real Madrid president talk about Kylian as if he is already one of them.

"Florentino Perez has already spoken about Kylian to Madrid supporters earlier in the week. It's a lack of respect that cannot be tolerated.

"This has been going on for two years. Just remember that the transfer window is over, that a season is underway. There are matches to be played and Real Madrid cannot continue to behave in this way. Make it stop!

"Kylian is a Paris Saint-Germain player and the club fully understand that this relationship will last."

The Frenchman revealed everything by admitting that he informed PSG that he likes to join Real in the summer and was not pleased by Leonardo’s refusal to sanction a contract, notwithstanding him taking the risk of losing Mbappe on a free transfer next year.

Although the 22-year-old did not rule out penning an extension with PSG, he was keen on joining the La Liga giants.
