PSG chief blasts Real Madrid President Florentino Perez over Kylain Mbappe comment

Paris Saint-Germain’s sporting director Leonardo has hit out at Real Madrid accusing the club of having a ‘lack of respect’ by discussing the future of Kylian Mbappe.

On Tuesday Madrid President Florentino Perez said he was confident the France star would commit to a LaLiga move with his contract set to expire at the end of this season.

And his claims didn’t sit well with Leonardo who raged to L’Equipe: “There are matches and Real Madrid cannot continue to behave in this way. May it stop!

“Mbappe is a PSG player and the club fully understands that this relationship will last.

“This new exit is just in the continuity of a lack of respect towards the PSG and towards Kylian Mbappe.

“In the same week, we’ve had a Real Madrid player (Karim Benzema) the coach (Carlo Ancelotti) and now the president of Real Madrid speak of Kylian as if he were their own player.

“It’s a lack of respect that we can’t tolerate. That (pursuit) from Florentino has been happening for two years.

“I only want to remind (everyone) the transfer window is over, that the season is going on.”
