Paris Saint-Germain summer signing Kylian Mbappe has admitted he snubbed Arsenal and Real Madrid this summer.
The French attacker joined PSG on-loan last week from Monaco with a permanent option worth €180m.
Asked about Real’s interest, he remarked yesterday: “To be honest, in May my decision was to stay in Monaco, that’s what I told the clubs that contacted me (Real Madrid) but then there have been several events that have made me change opinion.
“In the end for me it was important to stay in my country, to return to the city where I grew up.”
He added: “I am not the one in charge of talking about money or price. The transfer money is not in my pocket so it is not up to me to speak about it.
“The amount is anecdotal to me, it does not bother me. I just think of the pleasure of playing with great players.”
