"Mbappé prefers the wallet" ... the Spanish press between anger and dismay


As soon as Kylian Mbappé's decision to extend to PSG was confirmed, the Spanish media let off steam without restraint on the striker f

A few days earlier, the Spanish press was unanimous, and considered the transfer of Kylian Mbappé to Real Madrid almost certain.

This Saturday afternoon, while the French crack decided to stay well in Paris and extend his contract for three more seasons, the media beyond the Pyrenees took the news with excitement.

And anger.

The more or less watered-down Spanish reactions have poured in over the past hour on social networks and the editorials of the country's biggest newspapers.

Madrid daily, Marca was the first in Spain to confirm the information, saying with regret that the 23-year-old striker had called Florentino Perez directly to inform him of his decision.

“The 2018 world champion once again rejects Real Madrid, which had already happened in 2017, when he left Monaco for the Parc des Princes, recalled Marca.

Kylian and his staff, constantly surrounded by political pressure from Qatar and the French Republic, continued to listen to PSG.

The French club gave him everything he asked for, beyond the dizzying financial figures.


“Kylian, I feel sorry for you, you will always be a loser”

Editor-in-chief of the Real Madrid section for AS, the other major Madrid media, Tomas Roncero was particularly acerbic against the player.

“Mbappé has shown that between his wallet and his childhood dream, he prefers the wallet.

He remains the richest footballer in the world, but at the same time the poorest on the planet in terms of sport.

He preferred three more zeros to the right of his bank account than three more Ballons d'Or and three more Champions Leagues.

Kylian, I'm sorry for you.

You will always be a loser from now on.

Mundo Deportivo, meanwhile, felt that this decision could be compared to that of another Frenchman, Antoine Griezmann, "who had drawn a line under his transfer to Barça when his arrival at Camp Nou was considered a matter more than concluded”.
