Ahead of France’s next friendly match against Luxembourg tomorrow, Kylian Mbappé spoke in a press conference for the first time as a Real Madrid player. Mbappé thanked the club president, Florentino Perez, for believing in the player for a long time since the Spanish giants were very interested in signing him. Mbappé said, “I’m very excited to get to that club. I want to thank all the people who have sent me messages. I haven’t been able to see all of them, I thank you for the messages. I want to thank all the people of Real Madrid who have worked, and Florentino [Perez] especially, who gave me confidence from the first moment. Florentino Pérez had a lot of confidence in me since the first day.”

Mbappé spoke about becoming a Real Madrid player and said, “It’s official. I am a Real Madrid player. I am so happy, so emotional, this is a dream come true. This is where I always wanted to be. I am so excited. I am liberated, relieved and proud of my signing for Real Madrid.”

A situation that many were surprised to hear from Mbappé was the situation between him and PSG earlier in the season when the club threatened him not to play football last season unless he extended his contract. Mbappé said, “PSG told me to my face violently that I will not play this season. Luis Enrique and Luis Campos saved me. I wasn’t unhappy at PSG, no, but there were things that made me unhappy, yes.” Many fans believe that he is referring to PSG president Nasser Al Khelaifi, who wanted Mbappé to stay longer at the French club and was reportedly furious that he did not wish to extend his contract. The PSG president didn’t want Mbappé to leave the club for free to join Real Madrid.
