PSG shows Mbappé the exit door

Leonardo gave an interview to France Football in which he reviewed the news and in which he spoke about the Frenchman, Neymar or the interest in Leo Messi.


Leonardo Araujo, PSG sports director, always makes things clear every time he grants an interview. The Brazilian spoke for the magazine France Football and reviewed the recent news of the Parisian team, answering about the renewals of Neymar and Mbappé and about the possibility of seeing Messi in Paris next season.

"Mbappé and Neymar? I hope they are both convinced that Paris is a good football site for an ambitious and high-level player. You just have to reach an agreement to satisfy your wishes and demands according to our financial means. Those will follow who want to continue in Paris ", Leonardo stressed to the prestigious magazine.

These statements by Leonardo open the doors to a possible departure for Mbappé from PSG and, therefore, to a potential incorporation of the forward to Real Madrid in the next transfer market. In fact, the white team is already prepared for 'Operation Mbappé'. The club with making cash with several players in the next summer and obtaining between 100 and 150 million. They are Isco, Ceballos, Bale, Jovic, Marcelo or Brahim. The remaining money (the Real Madrid board estimates that PSG could ask for around the 222 million euros it paid for Neymar) from the transfer will be financed with a loan.

On the other hand, the arrival of Pochettino to the PSG bench has been another unknown in the future of Mbappé. One of the first requests of the Argentine coach was the signing of Messi, according to French media. In addition, Pochettino intends to join Leo with Agüero up front, as reported by Canal Plus France. These signings would make PSG have to lighten the salaries of its players to find the salary balance and not be threatened by the Financial Fair Play. This would be another step for the departure of Mbappé, who is one of the highest paid players in the squad.

Mbappé has shown his dissatisfaction on several occasions when he was substituted in matches and this was demonstrated last weekend in the match against Angers. Pochettino replaced him in the 79th minute with 0-1 on the scoreboard and the French forward made him see his coach. These attitudes, added to Leonardo's latest statements, make Real Madrid's hopes of getting the long-awaited signing rise.
