Should Mbappe move to Real Madrid or Barcelona

Despite Real Madrid mega offer: "Mbappe said he wants to go to Paris"

Vadim Vasilyev, vice-president of Ligue 1 club AS Monaco, has said that youngster Kylian Mbappe turned down an offer from Real Madrid before joining Paris Saint-Germain. Los Blancos were ready to put 180 million euros on the table for Mbappe.

"I still remember training when we got a call from Real Madrid and accepted a € 180m offer for Mbappe," Vasilyev told Canal +. "So it was up to him to choose."

Unai Emery: Mbappe wanted to join Real or Barca

Vasilyev confessed that only the attacker was responsible for the decision against the royal offer: "I told him that we had received an offer from his dream club Real that cannot be refused and that he should please tell me his decision . Then he told me that he would rather go to Paris, "said Vasilyev.

At the beginning of May, ex-PSG coach Unai Emery claimed that Mbappe had preferred a move to Real Madrid or FC Barcelona.

The 19-year-old moved on loan from AS Monaco to Paris for the 2017/18 season. Due to the early relegation of PSG in Ligue 1, the purchase obligation finally came into force in February. Mbappe will thus also appear in the Parc des Princes in the coming season.
