Paris Saint Germain sporting director Leonardo has said that striker Kylian Mbappe will be able to leave the club, but only if the conditions set by PSG are met, as has been reported by Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano;

Striker Kylian Mbappe Can Leave PSG

Leonardo Standing Firm

Sporting director of PSG, Leonardo has confirmed that Mbappe does want to leave the French club following Real Madrid’s bid of around £137 million for the player. Speaking to French media outlet RMC, Leonardo was determined to state that the transfer will only be possible if PSG’s demands are met, saying: “Kylian Mbappé wants to leave, that seems clear… If he wants to leave, we will not stop him, but on our terms.”

“Illegal Approach”

Leonardo also did little to hide his anger at Real Madrid, calling their approach for the striker ‘illegal’. He claims that Madrid contacted the player directly before speaking to the club first.

PSG still owe money to Monaco from when they purchased Mbappe, and this is another reason why the French giants are not willing to consider offers for the player unless they will make enough money back to pay what is owed to Monaco. This means that Real will need to significantly increase their offer if they want to sign him.

Deadline Approaching for Kylian Mbappe

Whilst it is hard to believe that Real will not return with another higher bid for Mbappe, Leonardo has said that PSG have no intention of speaking with the Spanish club again and, once the deadline has passed, he hopes that he will still be a PSG player, saying:

“We have no plans to talk to Real Madrid again. The deadline is August 31 at midnight. This is how the transfer window is, for us we are clear: we keep him and we extend. But we’re not going to let him go for less than what we paid when we still owe Monaco money.”

It remains to be seen if and when Real Madrid return with another bid, but it will need to be one of the highest transfer fees in football history for a deal to be done with the club willing to accept bids of over £180 million.
