Real Madrid midfielder, Aurelien Tchouameni has come out to say that Kylian Mbappe tried to persuade him to sign for Paris Saint-Germain. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, the Frenchman did try to get him to play in his home country and switch to PSG, but he ended up understanding his decision to move to Real Madrid.
Tchouameni added that he had the chance to choose other teams but once he knew Real Madrid were interested, he did not have a single doubt.
His words, “Kylian decided to stay at PSG and he knew I was leaving Monaco,”
“He wanted to know if I would join him at PSG. But my first choice was Real Madrid and he understood that completely.”
“I had the chance to choose other teams but once I knew Real Madrid were interested, I did not have a single doubt,”
“I spoke with other clubs but in my head I was always waiting for Madrid. I spoke with my agent, my family and [Monaco] to find the best agreement for everyone.”
“Madrid are the biggest club in the world, they have a team with incredible players and I think it’s the best decision for me.”
“There were already negotiations with Madrid at that stage,”
“Then when I saw the games against PSG, Chelsea and City, I wrote to people saying: ‘Please, do what you can so that I can go to Real Madrid!'”
