Conflict between Spain and France over Mbappé: the scars left by the Frenchman’s renewal with PSG

Finally, the gala figure reunites with the Parisian club until 2025, which generates a feeling of “betrayal” in the merengue store. They even accused him of using the White House to improve his contract with the club in the Qatari capital. LaLiga got into trouble and denounced Paris Saint-Germain for “undermining the economic stability of European football”. And the Spanish pro-Madrid media itself has been acidic with the world champion.

It was a decision awaited by European football circles: what would be the future of Kylian Mbappe. The Paris Saint-Germain star had two options on the table: stay in France or emigrate to Spain, to sign for Real Madrid. Since it was such a media determination, it was going to generate a series of tail bangs, whatever they were. And it happened. In short, the world champion in 2018 remains at PSG, reviving with the club of Qatari capitals until 2025.

“I chose to extend my contract with Paris Saint-Germain and of course I’m very happy about it. I am convinced that here I can continue to grow within a club which gives you all the means to perform at the highest level”. said the footballer, ending the soap opera that took hold of the international sports media. “I am also very happy to be able to continue to evolve in France, the country where I was born, I grew up and I flourish. I would like to thank the president, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, for his trust, his understanding and his patience,” he added.

Mbappé’s permanence in Ligue 1 has generated repercussions in all areas: sporting, economic and even in the media themselves. LaLiga president Javier Tebas assured that it is “an insult to football” because of the economic situation of the Parisian cast, whose losses in previous years were millionaires, according to the Hispanic manager.

“What will PSG do by renewing Mbappé with large sums of money (to know where and how he pays them) after giving 700 million euros in losses in recent seasons and having more than 600 million euros in wage bill, it’s an insult to football,” Tebas said on his Twitter account. He added that Al-Khelaifi “is as dangerous as the Super League”.

As a consequence of this, LaLiga have announced they will denounce PSG for attempting ‘against the economic viability of European football’ and considers it “scandalous” that a team like the Parisian can afford such exorbitant figures. “LaLiga will file a complaint against PSG before UEFA, the administrative and tax authorities of France and before the competent bodies of the European Union, to continue to defend the economic ecosystem of European football and its sustainability,” he said. -he. “Being PSG with unacceptable wage bills, with significant economic losses in previous seasons, implies an impossible investment in this situation, which undoubtedly implies a violation of the current rules of economic control not only of UEFA, but football itself. French,” he said. adds.

But beyond these back and forths, at Real Madrid they feel that Mbappé’s decision is a ‘betrayal’, that they used the club to get the striker to improve his salary with PSG. And the newspapers linked to the merengue club echoed it, clearly taking a position against the footballer.

Marca’s coverage on Sunday May 22.

The front page of the newspaper To mark This Sunday is called as follows: “You need a lot of class to play in Madrid.” With the shirt, without double readings. He added the following: “Mbappé betrays the white club and renews for PSG.” For its part, the newspaper AS headlined: “He loses her”. “Mbappé prefers PSG money to the Madrid legend… Ten days ago he said yes to Florentino and yesterday he backed off with a WhatsApp,” he added.

This formed guerrilla also spilled over into one of the most important and influential sports media outlets: the French newspaper The Team . With a less aggressive and more creative style, he titled: “France 2 – Spain 0”. The reference was for Mbappé’s renewal and for Lyon’s victory over Barcelona in the Women’s Champions League final, which took place on the same day.

The footballers were not silent either. Indirectly, they aimed their darts at the former Monegasque, because everything suggested that he was going to wear the white jersey. One of them was Uruguayan Federico Valverde, who via Twitter said: “Being in Madrid is a privilege that not everyone can have”. His team-mate Lucas Vázquez posted: “How lucky to be from @realmadrid”.

It’s like that with a mediatized football like today. Kylian Mbappé went from long-awaited Real Madrid goal to someone no free at the Santiago Bernabéu. Meanwhile, Carlo Ancelotti and company are preparing for the Champions League final this Saturday against Liverpool… in France. What will Florentino Pérez have in his hands, also thinking that Erling Haaland has signed for City? Time and wallet will tell.
