‘Am I jealous? Not at all’, Barcelona president Laporta warns Real Madrid about Mbappe signing

Barcelona president Joan Laporta insists his club isn’t jealous of Real Madrid’s potential signing of Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe.

Kylian Mbappe’s contract at PSG is expiring in the summer, and the France superstar has already told the club that he wants to leave the team. It appears that the Frenchman will join Real Madrid next season once his contract with PSG expires.

In an interview with the Catalan newspaper Mundo Deportivo, Laporta denied that he envies Real Madrid because of the potential signing of Mbappe.

Am I jealous? Not at all. Absolutely not. Anyway, I don’t know if they’ll do the deal or not. We’ll see. I really don’t know,” Laporta claimed.

Laporta also warned Real Madrid that by signing Mbappe they risk causing problems in the dressing room. Barcelona president also believes their rivals should sell one of their key players to fit Mbappe into the team.

They’ve got a problem there. They’ll have to sell a player if Mbappé signs,right? Because they are not both going to play in the same position and they are also two very important players. And as for the (salary figures), that’s going to upset the dressing room for sure. That’s a gift nobody wants.

French newspaper L’Équipe recently revealed Mbappe currently earns €6 million a month before tax at PSG, more than any player in Europa.
