Mbappe leaked texts messages went viral on twitter and reddit, what happened
It was a near-impossible feat for many players to reject the offer from Real Madrid and Florentino Perez. Just a week ago, it seemed highly probable that Kylian Mbappe, a childhood fan who adorned his walls with posters of Cristiano Ronaldo’s Madrid days, would be the latest superstar to join the club’s Galacticos. Despite no new signings, Real Madrid was confident that Mbappe would be their player next season, and a deal would be finalized once his contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires this summer. Mbappe, who texted Perez to inform him of his decision, announced that he had signed a new three-year contract with Paris on Saturday night, shocking the Real Madrid president and hierarchy. Perez’s transfer strategy has centered around signing Mbappe in recent years, and his decision comes as a major setback. Real Madrid has focused on sealing a deal for the France international, even turning down the opportunity to sign Erling Haaland. Marca claims that Mbappe will have an influence over important decisions at Paris, such as the appointment of the next sporting director and manager. The athlete, who capped his new contract with a hat-trick against Metz in the final Ligue 1 game of the season, will now be the highest-paid player in the world and the most influential, earning about £34 million per year or around £653,000 a week.
