“Kylian Mbappe feels like he’s leaving, that seems obvious to me,” Leonardo said on Wednesday. “Our goal is to extend it and keep it. If a player wants to leave, he must be subject to our terms. This applies not only to Kylian but to all players. It seems to be a strategy to get rejected from us, to show that they have tried everything and wait to get Kylian for free.”

Mbappe has been linked with a move to Madrid for several months, despite the Spanish club incurring losses estimated at 300 million euros due to the Corona virus pandemic. But in their accounts for last season published in July, Real said: “The current expectations are that the recovery from the pre-pandemic state will not be immediate. Therefore, the club will continue the cost containment efforts it has made so far.”
Mbappe joined Paris Saint-Germain from Monaco in 2017, initially on loan and then permanently a year later in a €180m deal. He has scored 133 goals in just 174 games for the club in all competitions.
