La Liga president Javier Tebas was absolutely livid with rage at the news that Kylian Mbappe cooly snubbed a transfer to Real Madrid to stay at Paris Saint-Germain instead.
After the tsunami of speculation for the last few months that the French striker would be heading to the Spanish capital had finally subsided, it was finally announced yesterday that Mbappe would sign a new contract with PSG, keeping him at the Parc des Princes until 2025.
Apparently, despite also agreeing terms with Madrid, Mbappe finally opted to accept an unmatchable lucrative new deal from PSG, according to BBC Sport. Obviously and understandably, this snub by Mbappe has clearly not gone down well with football chiefs in Spain, with the characteristically pompous La Liga chief Javier Tebas supposedly clearly concerned about what PSG’s finances are doing to the game, even to the extent of acrimoniously labeling the club’s owner as being ‘as dangerous as the Super League’.
“What PSG is going to do by renewing Mbappe with large amounts of money after losing 700m euros in recent seasons and having more than 600m euros in wages, is an INSULT to football. Al-Khelafi (sic) is as dangerous as the Super League,” Tebas’ tweet read.
“This type of agreement threatens the economic sustainability of European football,” read a La Liga statement, as quoted by BBC Sport.
It in indubitably a massive blow to the ginormous egos of big clubs like Real Madrid a that had been hogging the limelight for eons, and the La Liga, to miss out on the kind of signing that they’ve become famous for down the years.
This is one of those rare occasions when the Los Merengues have been slapped in the face trying to sign scintillating Galacticos like this, and Mbappe would have been one of the most exciting of them all.
The 23-year-old is already well on his way to becoming one of the greatest superstars of his generation, with the likes of none other than GOAT Lionel Messi alongside him to help him shine as the greatest superstar of the new generation.
