PSG Slam Disrespectful Real Over Mbappe Saga

Paris Saint-Germain director Leonardo has slammed Real Madrid for what he believes to be a lack of respect in their pursuit of Kylian Mbappe.

The Spanish giants made a late attempt to sign the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner in the most recent transfer window, although the Ligue 1 side rejected their reported €160 million (R2.8 billion) bid.

Mbappe also recently revealed that he informed the club in July of his desire to leave with one year left on his current deal so that they could get a fee and find a suitable replacement.

PSG were able to keep their star forward for another season, but sporting director Leonardo has now expressed his anger at various members of Los Blancos for publicly speaking about the French striker.

"This is another example of the lack of respect for PSG and for Mbappe," Leonardo told L'Equipe.

"In fact, in the same week a Real Madrid player [Karim Benzema], then the Real Madrid coach [Carlo Ancelotti] and now the president [Florentino Perez] talk about Kylian as if he was already one of their own. I repeat: this is a lack of respect that we cannot tolerate."

While PSG were able to reject bids from Real, the French club could lose the 22-year-old for nothing when his contract expires next year.
