Mbappé, it’s a laugh at Real Madrid


By: Manu Tournoux

Having passed very close to the penalty box against Leipzig, the Real Madrid players did not escape questions about Kylian Mbappé at the end of the meeting.

Real Madrid suffered like rarely this season on Wednesday against Leipzig. Despite winning the first leg in Germany, the Madrilenians had to settle for a draw on the return leg at Santiago Bernabeu (1-1) and were even saved by the crossbar at the end of the match. Aurélien Tchouameni was nonetheless smiling at the end of the meeting and had fun with the questions about Kylian Mbappé, expected to join the Merengue this summer.

Three weeks ago, after the first leg, the former Bordeaux player expressed his impatience. “We hope that things will settle down in the coming weeks,” he said. The vice-world champion had been served since the announcement of his departure from PSG came two days later. “It’s funny, plus it was right after our talk last time.” What an incredible coincidence, he also underlined with a big smile in front of the Canal+ cameras. However, I was not aware of this. I was taking a nap, woke up, saw this on Twitter, bam, popcorn. Now I know (of his departure) but I don’t yet know where he will go. »

“It’s like a movie anyway”

Relaunched, Aurélien Tchouameni reiterated that he was not in the know. “I don’t know, maybe I’ll ask the president (Florentino Pérez) if he wants to come and talk to you, we’ll see what he’ll tell you, but we don’t have any information,” he assured, adding: “When I saw he was leaving, I was asleep. I woke up, I saw, I tweeted a little popcorn to say ‘let’s see what happens’. It’s like a movie anyway. If he will become my teammate at Real Madrid? Only the future will tell us. »

Also once again questioned on the subject, Carlo Ancelotti was much more abrupt than his midfielder. “I wish him good luck for the future. To Madrid ? I don’t know, I can’t talk about that.”he replied, determined not to comment on the issue.
