With Mbappe out of contract this summer, it was long speculated he would move to Real Madrid on a free transfer at the end of the season, after PSG rejected a big offer last summer.
However, Mbappe’s new contract at PSG has been confirmed, one which will see him receive a huge signing fee and significant influence over the club’s affairs. This leaves Real without the man they have been desperately looking for.
Anticipating PSG’s announcement that Mbappe has extended his stay, La Liga’s fury was clear as it was revealed that a complaint to UEFA would be lodged over what is perceived to be a breach of financial rules.
A La Liga statement said: “Faced with the possible announcement of Kylian Mbappé to stay at Paris Saint-Germain, LaLiga wants to declare that this type of agreement threatens the economic sustainability of European football, putting hundreds of thousands at risk. jobs and sporting integrity, in the medium term, not only of European competitions, but also of our national championships.
“It’s outrageous that a club like PSG, which last season lost more than 220 million euros, after racking up losses of 700 million euros in recent seasons (even declaring sponsorship income of a very dubious amount) with a cost of sports personnel around 650 million for this 21/22 season, can face an agreement of these characteristics while the clubs which could accept the arrival of the player without seeing their wage bill compromised, found without being able to sign it.
“For all of the above, LaLiga will file a complaint against PSG before UEFA, the administrative and tax authorities in France and before the competent bodies of the European Union, to continue to defend the economic ecosystem of European football and its sustainability.”
He continues: “These behaviors show all the more that the clubs of the State do not respect or do not want to respect the rules of an economic sector as important as football, key to the sustainability of hundreds of thousands of jobs. .
“This type of behavior led by Nasser Al-Khelaifi, president of PSG, due to his status as a member of the ex-UEFA, president of ECA, is a danger for European football at the same level as the Super League. .”
