“It’s impossible to make signings like Mbappé and Haaland, in any case, not for Real Madrid. And not without the Super League ”. This is what Florentino Pérez said to the Cadena Ser a week ago, in the wake of the sinking of the Super League project, about the summer transfer window.

We remember that Leonardo had rejected FC Barcelona in 2019 for Neymar, despite the clear desire to leave the latter, for the same reason. Real Madrid know that it will be difficult to convince Paris, but they believe in the possibility of recovering Mbappé for free in 2022 …
